While some people treat their dogs as if they are members of the family, others, sadly, subject them to neglect and poor living conditions. Ilovemydogsomuch writes
Unfortunately, Libre experienced the latter.
The four-year-old guard-dog of an abandoned house in Cagua, Venezuela, was chained up 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with no food or water.The heavy chain around her neck made breathing difficult, and it was so short that she couldn’t even lay down.Thankfully, her ordeal ended when concerned neighbors witnessed her owner’s treatment of her and immediately reported them to the police and local animal shelter.
Libre was starving when rescuers arrived and gladly ate all of the food they gave her.They removed the chain, exposing raw skin around her neck from years of hanging from the tight metal chain around her neck.They treated her wound and made sure she received proper medical care.
Libre is now enjoying life and is grateful for her second chance.
