Dogs are loyal to their masters, but also to their friends in the pack. Layla and Gracie were abandoned like trash in a park near Philadelphia, USA. Both of them were in poor physical condition, especially Grace, who didn’t even have the strength to get up, so her partner chose her to keep her warm.
People passing by who thought they were dead told authorities where Officer Harper was. He couldn’t believe they showed signs of being beaten, but it wasn’t human abuse, they were beating the dogs.
They were also approached by a police officer serving an animal organization called Rescue for Justice, and that’s when a pit bull, who was in better condition, approached her, but she thought he was going to hit her because she closed her eyes, Head down.
“Lyla came up to me, wagging her tail, but she closed her eyes like she thought she was going to get hit,” Harper said.
When he has earned the trust of both dogs with caresses and praise, he is able to approach them safely, put a vest on them so they are sure not to get any colder, and then go to the vet for an evaluation.
The dogs had recently been injured and when they were assessed they realised they were only 2 years old and had been brutally exploited. However, the dog in critical condition is Gracie.
Both began treatment and while Gracie was still in serious condition as she watched her rescuer, she showed joy and even wanted to play with him for a while. She wasn’t aggressive, she was gentle, and after a few days, she had more strength, although she still had a long way to go.
“They love the relationship, they just don’t know what to do with it,” Harper said.
Because of the medical interest, they both have, they were able to get through it. The truth is in 2017, but it’s still shocking to admit, this is the situation faced by many strong breeds of dogs. Of course, both are recovering bit by bit, as in the last visual post on Facebook we saw a satisfactory recovery for both.
