Elizabeth - Lived Life in Fear in Abusive Home Situation

If you're having a bad day, all you need to do is go and see Elizabeth and she makes all of the badness disappear. She has such a warmness about her and she just exudes happiness. It's hard to imagine how this is even possible when she has had so much badness in her own life over the last six months. From what we can surmise from eyewitnesses, Elizabeth allegedly lived a life of fear and abuse since her owner obtained her, and we are thankful beyond words that caring neighbors spoke up on her behalf to ensure that she would never have to suffer again.

Our AHS- Newark officer got the call regarding a dog that was allegedly being abused at a residence in Newark. The neighbors had made several complaints to authorities regarding the cries and screams that they would hear coming from the home daily. No one is clear on what went on with poor Elizabeth and we will never know but honestly, do we really want to know? The thought of this darling, sweet, pocket-sized pittie mix screaming in pain, no matter the cause, is simply gut-wrenching. Our ACO removed the frightened little darling from the home and brought her to the safety of our Newark facility where she was immediately examined by our medical staff. Elizabeth was found to be malnourished and suffering with a variety of infections in her ears and skin, and had open sores also.

Unfortunately a short time later, our ACO was directed by the law enforcement agency for animals in the state to return the dog to the owner, as they claimed there was not sufficient evidence of abuse. Thankfully, with the help of outcry from the neighbors that were infuriated at the thought of this sweet little dog being returned to an abusive environment, we did not have to return her to the owner. Elizabeth is now safe and sound, and she is on the road to recovery.

Elizabeth just could not be any more grateful, loving and sweet. Everyone that she meets is her very best friend and her little rear end never stops wiggling when she meets someone new. She had her first medicated bath today for her terribly infected skin and she was even happy to have that! Nothing is getting her down these days and nothing will ever get her down as long as we can help it.

Elizabeth will be under medical treatment for the next few weeks. With so many animals in need like Elizabeth, our Res-Q Fund is again stretched very thin. If you would like to help, please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund, or by texting HumaneHelp to 41444

Once Elizabeth gets her clean bill of health in a few weeks, she will be looking for a fresh start in life with a wonderful family that will give her all of the love and good care that she deserves, and never hurt her again. In the meantime, she will continue to warm our hearts every day while we help her to get back to the healthy and thriving little lady that she should be.
