Fallon Marie was discovered hiding under a car by Stray Rescue of St. Louis, with a long linked chain around her neck.
The stray dog had been abandoned, her chain still around her neck.She was forced to drag it behind her, and its weight caused her head to droop.
Rescuers try to entice her with food, but she is initially very timid and nervous.
They release Fallon Marie from her chains once she is safe and at their shelter.
It must have been agonizing for her, because rescuers discovered her chain weighed an incredible 10 pounds and she weighed only 31 pounds!
She can now raise her head!And the expression on her face when the chain is removed is priceless!
Watch the video below to see the beautiful moment.
