Every year, thousands of dogs suffer inhumane treatment from puppy mills, underground dog fighting syndicates, and dog meat trades. Wounds, infections, injury, and trauma are just some of the things that abusers inflict on them. Fortunately, many of the animals rescued from said conditions are resilient enough to beat the odds. It’s comforting that there are sympathetic organizations that look after their welfare, nurture them back to health, and find them new homes. Adopting a rescue dog is a heroic act because it’s giving a loving creature a new chance at life. However, since they have a history of abuse, they need special care before they can learn how to trust again.
