Two residents went to see what was going on after hearing loud cries for help coming from a basement of a Cincinnati house. When they arrived at the property’s owner, he agreed to let them in on the condition that they give the dog he was holding there some water.
They were saddened and heartbroken when they reached the basement and saw the state in which the young Bulldog was living.
The two-year-old dog, Gracie, was sitting on the cold concrete, clearly thirsty and hungry. When she saw the people entering the dark basement, her first instinct was to approach them and give them licks and kisses. That was how desperate she was for someone to love her and be there for her.
The rescuers posted on Facebook, “Her feet are caked in feces and her voice is hoarse from barking.” “She is in dire need of care and food (which he provides by throwing a bag of food on her every few days)… She is, nevertheless, incredibly sweet. Please… are there any dog rescues that would be willing to take her?”
The post was widely shared on social media, allowing Queen City Bulldog Rescue (QCBR) to learn about Gracie’s tragic life story. They were more than happy to accommodate her. The dog was given to them for $200 by the owner. He didn’t want her any longer, according to Chelsea Muenzer, founder of (QCBR), because she “wasn’t getting pregnant anymore.”
“She yearned for human contact!” The Dodo spoke with Muenzer. “From the moment we met her, she instantly trusted us, and I swear I knew she was safe.”
Despite the nightmare she was forced to endure, this caring soul has not lost her will to live.
People couldn’t help but fall in love with Gracie’s sweet personality because she was excited about her new life and was so nice.
Gracie was put in a foster home after receiving much-needed medical assistance. Her carers adore her, and she is most likely to remain with them for the rest of her life.
“Right now, she’s living the cozy life,” Muenzer said. “She’s discovered a new love for warm blankets, sunshine walks, human kiddos, bubble baths, and cookies.”
Despite the fact that she now looks and acts like a totally different dog, much happier and healthier, she still has a lot to understand. She heads to the basement if she has to use the restroom because she has done it for so long. Her family, on the other hand, is there to teach her everything she needs to know while ensuring that she takes one step at a time.
Thankfully, the people in her life at the moment love her completely.
