Haddie the dog lost half her face after it was used as dogfight bait. For a long time she was in the hands of abusers who caused her a lot of pain.
For her owners, she was nothing more than an object of entertainment, they had no remorse or sensitivity for her situation.
Haddie grew up in such a sickly environment that she left her with permanent scars. Her face was completely disfigured, without an eye and damage to a large part of her muzzle, while she suffered, others bet and celebrated for it.
She lost half of her face in dog fights but now she enjoys a new opportunity
The life of this brave dog was very hard, but everything took a turn when it seemed that there was no hope for her. Her rescue was made possible by Mutt Scouts, a shelter for abused dogs.
Although her transformation was fraught with many difficulties, her life was safe and now she was surrounded by people who gave her all the love she had never received.
This adorable little dog had a second chance, a few days after her rescue she was transferred to Southern California, to Mutt Scouts Dog Rescue, where she began a new process.
She underwent multiple surgeries to improve her health, with infinite care and love, her hopes were reborn.
Her recovery process was very costly, but fortunately, she had the support of kind souls who paid all of her medical bills.
Erin Williams, a 36-year-old woman from Washington DC, knew the story of the dog and from the first moment she saw her she was attracted by her unusual appearance.
She wanted to be a part of her recovery process and make her a member of her family, so she didn’t hesitate to adopt her.
“They had to remove some of her skin and an eye from her to save her life. Basically, she was already rotting. I’ve seen before pictures and it’s really awful. The injuries came from forcible attacks by other dogs,” said Erin Williams.
At all times, Williams was willing to take care of the dog and make her feel safe in her new home.
“A lot of the medical care happened before she adopted her. When I got it, her face was still healing, so my job was to make sure the affected area was okay,” Ella Williams said.
As expected, the dog needed a long time for her wounds to heal completely, also for her to adapt to her new home, she needed to feel confident and interact with other furry ones without feeling fear.
Little by little, her fear disappeared and trusting completely in her new family, she is now a very sociable dog who loves to have all the attention.
Although some people look at her a little bewildered, for Erin her dog is the bravest and most beautiful in the world. She has had to admit some harsh comments or unwanted looks, but they go ahead without anything disturbing her walks.
“Haddie is always there to remind me it’s time to get out of the house for a walk, and she’s always up for a nap,” Erin said.
Today this adorable dog enjoys being the spoiled one in the house, she has taught her mother to enjoy the small pleasures of life like sleeping, a simple gift, or enjoying a sunset in a comfortable place. Erin finally added:
“Just knowing that she is safe and loved is enough to make me happy. She is enjoying life for the first time today, so she has a chance to be a little bit of a puppy. She always looks like she is smiling. I personally find her adorable, and I’m thankful that a lot of people find her too.”
After a past full of misfortunes, without a doubt, he deserves a home full of love. Congratulations, little Haddie.
