Against all odds, Glory turned out to be a stout fighter indeed. She was taken into the care of Beauties and Beasts Inc, an animal rescue organization out of Wichita. There, she began the long road to rehabilitation. Beauties and Beasts volunteer Kasey Breidenthal told 3KSN News: “She’s got some skin to grow back and some regular healing as well. “But she’s doing really well. She’s playful, and doing great.”
Through the power of social media, Glory soon won the hearts of people all over the world. The 9-month-old pup continued to battle against adversity, though the scars she bore were a constant reminder of the harrowing ordeal that very nearly cost her her life. Angered by her treatment, Beauties and Beasties took to Facebook looking for the person responsible.
“Do you know who did this?” they wrote. “This sweet young girl was found by a good Samaritan laying on the side of the road with her eyes and mouth superglued and bruising to her abdomen. “This was an intentional act, and someone who is capable of harming an innocent little dog is extremely dangerous. They will continue this pattern of abuse on helpless victims.” By the time summer had rolled around, Glory had proven herself a kind and loving companion. She was adopted into her forever home by the Waggy family, where she’ll have the chance to live the life she was almost so cruelly robbed of. “A tragic beginning, but a happy ending I hope,” said Mark Claeys, who fostered Glory before her adoption.
The world is a bitterly cruel place, one made all the more cruel by the depraved acts of some human beings. Glory could have so easily been hit by a passing car, or simply died of starvation through not being able to see or eat.
Our thanks go out to all the people who saved Glory and gave her a second chance in life.
