We’ve heard a lot about the horrible cruelty cases afflicting animals and can not understand how somebody could do something so awful to a helpless animal: in Lebanon a dog with their mouth duct-taped close so tightly and for so long that their skin grew around the tape; cats who have been blind with bullets.
A dog neglected on the streets of war-torn Lebanon didn’t have much life left in her.
The 5-year-old dog was tied to a box, blind after her eyes had been pulled out and deaf with one entire ear missing completely. To add to it, she was pregnant with no one to care for her or love her.
A man walking down the street spied the destroyed dog and while homeless dogs are very usual in the country, she was so near to death that he took attention of her and just had to help.
The person turned the dog to Wild at Heart Foundation, a saving organization located out of the UK that supports stray pets find forever homes. Workers there named the brave girl Maggie and while investigating her, they were surprised at how inclusive her injuries really were.
It was obvious that Maggie was missing an ear, deaf and blind.
But another exam showed that Maggie had been shot 17 times with a pellet gun. Some rescues might have killed a dog like Maggie who was in such bad shape. But not this girl.
The Wild at Heart Foundation shared pictures of Maggie and cortex her case on social media, hoping that somebody would feel obliged to make her theirs. Kasey Carlin’s mother stumbled across the post and just realized Maggie was meant to be a part of their family.
“My mum saw Maggie’s post and said we had to foster her. I got home and saw the picture and agreed.”
Maggie suffered surgery to sew her eyes shut. However, in the end, was recovered enough that she could go to her new home with 25-year-old Kasey and her mother. The only problem is that they were 2,500 miles apart.
So, Maggie rose up her first flight and headed tho tons of miles to her new house.
Kasey had been going during a hard time emotionally. However, immediately she saw Maggie at the airport, her spirits lifted instantly. Plus, caring for a special needs dog kept Kasey’s mind off her own circumstances.
“I was in tears when I met her at the airport. I got in touch with some blind rescue dog charities and ask what to do. They said map out the house for her room by room. But we sectioned off the kitchen and the first night she slept in her crate. I took her out to go to the toilet and it was the first time she touched the grass.”
