Smoke, the Pit Bull puppy, has a tragic past, but she hides it well. Her previous human stabbed her at least seven times, causing trachea and carotid artery damage. Smoke would not have survived if it hadn’t been for Brad Chambers’ kind heart, writes Molly Weinfurter of iheartdogs.com.

Smoke is now one of the happiest and most loving dogs you’ll ever see. She has no evidence of a traumatic past, and she has recovered from all of her injuries. However, none of this would have been possible without the assistance of her new favorite human
On the Verge of Death
When Smoke was a scrawny puppy, she scurried under Chambers’ truck in Virginia. He noticed she was bleeding when he approached her. The poor puppy was most likely hiding from the person who had harmed her. She had multiple stab wounds and didn’t seem to be going to make it.
Fortunately, Chambers, a former cop, knew exactly what to do. He had a trauma kit in his truck, which allowed him to save the puppy’s life. He then rushed her to a nearby animal hospital for additional care. Her injuries were so severe that she had to be transported out of state to North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine for surgery.
“She has fully recovered from all surgeries, and she has tons of energy, and her loyalty is unwavering,” Chambers said. Her medical bills totaled at least $15,000 after all of her procedures. Chambers paid for some of it out of pocket, but he was able to raise the rest through fundraising. At that point, he realized Smoke had to become a member of his family.
A Miracle Pit Bull Transforms Lives
Chambers adopted Smoke because he believes he can provide her with the loving home she deserves. She has already come out of her shell and demonstrated her true personality in his presence. So Chamber is ecstatic to spend the rest of his life with the adorable Pit Bull.
“She’s one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever met,” Chambers said. “This is a dog who needs to find a home where everyone around her can benefit from her love, and, yes, I love dogs.”
Smoke is now training to become a certified therapy dog because she is so loving. She can use her charming and upbeat personality to assist those in need.
