Abused Dog Refuses To Fight When Humans Take Her Away — But She Has No Idea They Want To Help

Lemming had just about given up hope. She was resigned to a sad fate when rescuers swooped in and saved her.

Their mission? Giving the abused dog a better life.

The poor dog had grown used to being hurt and neglected. After being confiscated from her owner, she was put on a euthanasia list.

So when strangers took her way, she didn’t resist. Lemming’s rescuers noted she was sick, scared, and hungry. They knew they had to do everything in their power to give this pup a better life.

After a little care and an appointment with the vet, her physical illnesses were cured. But her emotional ones still needed to be tended to.

Lemming was placed with a loving family and given a large and comfortable bed to call her own.

And though she is scared of men, she’s taken to her new foster dad. Now Lemming delights her foster mom every day. They’ve even discovered that she can perform a trick: giving paw!

Being part of a big, happy family, Lemming has got her second chance at life! After everything she’s been through, she deserves it all — and more.
