It was already dark when a truck pulled up to an animal shelter and two men pulled something out and tried to walk away. Someone from the shelter had spotted them and ran out to ask them what they were doing. The explanation he received sent a chill up his spine.
He recalled what the men said, "The factory was shutting down. They could no longer care for 'her'. The shapeless shadow that they needed to get rid of. She was a dog, a dog that they kept in their factory yard for four years, tied to a kennel there at the corner of their yard, a guard dog as they call it."
The men didn't stick around long and left this poor shadow of a dog with the shelter. The shelter volunteer couldn't believe what he was seeing. He said that she "was no longer a dog in the sense we use it."
She was so emaciated and sick that she hardly looked like she could stand. "She was a naked skeleton of purple color with some fur here and there. The rabid smell of mange could be touched in the air around her. The disease had left itchy wounds almost everywhere on her body."
She spent 4 years suffering through this terrible life, but now everything was going to change. The people at He'Art of Rescue went to work quickly, getting her food, water, and treating the mange that was taking over her body.
She was given the name Rosalie and has been given all the cuddles she could ask for and slowly but surely she started to come back to life. She started gaining weight and her hair came back and now she is the happiest little girl around.
