“She literally cried real tears” 💔
In the world of dog rescue, every call is urgent, and every life is worth saving. When Suzette Hall, the founder of Logan’s Legacy dog rescue, received a call about a gray and white pit bull roaming a truck yard, she immediately sensed the urgency in the caller’s voice. Without hesitation, she rushed to help, little knowing the heartbreaking story that awaited her.
As a full-time rescuer, Hall has encountered countless dogs with diverse backgrounds, each with its unique tale of abandonment or escape. However, this time, she stumbled upon a dog whose sadness was palpable.
Upon arriving at the truck yard, Hall found the pit bull, later named June, frantically pacing through the perilous industrial area while whimpering. The physical signs on June’s body hinted that she had recently given birth, but there were no signs of her puppies.
“I have never in my life seen a dog so incredibly sad,” Hall shared. “She literally cried real tears.”
After an exhaustive search of the truck yard, Hall tragically concluded that June’s puppies were no longer with us.
As a mother herself, Hall could empathize with the depths of June’s grief. Once she safely secured June in her car, Hall offered her the comfort of a much-needed hug.
“She was the most traumatized, saddest dog I’ve ever seen,” Hall recounted. “I just held her because I knew exactly how she felt.”
Hall understood that it would take time for June to heal, but she was determined to help her along that journey. She promptly took June to the vet for a thorough examination and shared her story in the hope of finding a foster home for June as quickly as possible.
Fortunately, a compassionate woman reached out, offering to provide temporary shelter for June. This woman had previously adopted another pit bull mother who had also experienced the loss of her puppies, and she believed she could provide the nurturing environment June needed.
Her instincts were spot on.
“June came out of her shell right away with her new family,” Hall reported.
Initially, June’s new home was intended to be temporary, as Hall continued to search for a forever family for her. However, it soon became evident that June had found her perfect match. Her foster mom recognized that June had found her forever home and asked to officially adopt her.
With unconditional love from her new mom and a furry sister who shared a similar history of loss, June transformed from a grieving soul into a lively and joyous pup. Finally, she had a family that cherished her.
“All she does now is give kisses,” Hall said, with a heart full of gratitude. “She’s so happy.”
In the embrace of a loving family and the companionship of her kindred sister, June’s heart began to heal, and she embraced her present-day life with boundless joy. Together, they were not just survivors; they were a testament to the resilience of love and the power of healing.
