Chain of Hope received a phone call from a neighbor that was very concerned about the dog 2 doors down. Apparently, the owners had moved 2 weeks ago and just left her there, on a heavy chain and pregnant. She was absolutely stunning! She was very sweet, too. The neighbors had been feeding her for 2 weeks and they finally decided she had to get out of there. They didn’t want to call animal control, so they called Chain of Hope.
When we got there, we saw Linda, down the drive way, chained to a cinder block.
Since the poor dog had on two padlocks and no one had a key, we had to break the cinder block into two pieces to be able to walk her out of there on a slip lead. We tried to cut the chain with our bolt cutters, but we only had our small ones and they weren’t enough for this chain. Thank goodness, the very nice neighbor man came over and broke the cinder block with his sledge hammer! We loaded Linda up and took her out of there! Thank goodness the neighbors had called!
We took Linda to the vet and had her spayed. It is sad to have to do that, but we have a pit bull crisis in this town-there are far too many of them
This girl is the sweetest dog. We are evaluating her with other dogs and getting her settled in at Chain of Hope. Thank you for your support so that we could get right over and rescue Linda!
