Lucy, a pit bull rescued from Colombia. Her former owner abused her so badly that she had multiple facial fractures that never set properly and missing teeth (removed so she couldn't fight back when male dogs would try and mate with her when she was in heat). I love her imperfect smile.
Best friends for 2 1/2 years. My heart just melted into a puddle.
”This is my favorite photo in the world - me and Linus, born to a dairy cow and ordered to be killed when the farmer saw he was a male (and thus useless in the dairy industry). A compassionate individual intervened, and he was brought to a sanctuary. I met him when he was a few days old and 60 pounds, and he would always try to sit on my lap. Today, 7 years young and 1500 pounds, he still tries to sit on my lap.” - Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
