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. Lebanon - Woman Flies Badly Abused Dog 2,500 Miles Then Shows Her Love

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.

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.”

Even though Maggie had endured unthinkably horrible abuse and cruelty, she assimilated beautifully into Kacey’s house.

“She’s just brilliant. She’s so energetic and bubbly. She walks off the lead and follows me around. She must have been in agony with all she’s been through, but she never hurt anyone and she’s so loving.”

After all that Maggie had been through.

Her kind spirit made her able her to return in a way no one ever thought she could. She registered in classes to become a treatment dog. And now visits a college campus to raise the spirits of students. In the end, she’ll make visits at hospitals.


“I’ve never met a dog like Maggie. I can’t fathom any reason someone would ever want to hurt such a pure and innocent soul. They tried to break her spirit… but Maggie is unbreakable! She’s bloody indestructible!! She has not only suffered in her life but she has chosen to forgive and live her best life every single day! I think that’s what makes Maggie so magical. To suffer so much and still have love in her heart, to learn to trust again, to completely forgive … she’s a perfect little angel.”

Many people loved Maggie while she was at the shelter that Kasey made an Instagram page named “maggiethewunderdog” so people can keep following her adventures.

While Maggie hangs onto life by a thread, she was meant to be so much more than another cruelty case. Today, she assists others and keeps them, too.
