Neglected and starved with maggots and mange covering his skin — this was the horrifying way a Boston terrier later named Libre (both French and Spanish for “free”) was found.
The 16-week-old puppy, who was found in a puppy mill in Lancaster County, PA, had grim chances of survival.
That all changed when Pennsylvania’s Speranza Animal Rescue and Dillsburg Veterinary Center stepped in to help. While it wouldn’t be an easy road considering the dog’s condition, these animal lovers refused to give up on the puppy who was left to die.
Although we’ve seen this type of compassion many times before (including overseas by organizations like Animal Aid Unlimited), it’s always incredible to watch an innocent animal get a second chance at life.
Just watch Libre’s unbelievable road to recovery through the photos and the PunkRox Productions video below…
