Flint – From Emaciated Stray to “Potato Dog”

Imagine driving down the street and seeing a dog in obviously desperate need of help; dirty, emaciated with ribs, hips and spine poking out, scuffed and scarred up, scared and in such sad shape that he’s practically oblivious to his surroundings just wandering down the street.  This is the beginning of Flint’s story, at least the only story that his rescuers know…

My fiancé left for work one morning, and not 5 minutes later I get a call from her. She came across this poor, obliviously unaware dog in the middle of the street, who almost got hit by one or two cars.

Brycen had become the target of some jock types at middle school, being beaten, bloodied and bullied all too often and the design of the school made it impossible to really escape, “People would just run up to me, push me over and run down the hall,” he said. Read the rest of this entry

Update on Emaciated Doberman Pup

starving dogIn early September, this picture posted by 100+ Abandoned dogs of Everglades Florida, of an emaciated doberman pup lying in the hot Florida sun went viral.  Hundreds and thousands of calls were placed to animal control, police, media and even local politicians to no avail.  Authorities wouldn’t remove the dog from the “owners” stating that no crime was being committed. Read the background HERE.

Finally, after the dog was removed and returned due to the law ,  due to an outstanding warrant, D’Anthony Davis was arrested and his wife was later arrested as well after causing a ruckus.  Both Dutchess, the emaciated doberman and another dog, a puppy named Diamond, were removed from the home.

Over a week ago FTLTD shared the rescue of Cadence, the terribly abused sweet girl who gave mankind a second chance even though she’d known only cruelty at their hands.  At the end of the heartwarming and touching video, you see another big pitbull, a male, playing with Cadence.  He’s introduced as Chance with an update on his rescue coming… well, here is it… a second chance for Chance, so fearful of humans that he didn’t want to take a chance on Eldad Hagar and Annie Hart.  But they weren’t giving up on him!
