Scared, blind pitbull was dumped by owners on a park bench — but love came to her rescue

pit bull[1]How anyone can dump a blind animal on the streets is beyond me. Some very cruel people left a blind pitbull sitting on a wet and cold park bench, where the poor thing sat for who knows how long, too afraid to get off. Fortunately, animal control picked up the dog and a very kind lady who rescues dogs heard about its plight and took action.[2]

The Daily Mail reports,

Her situation seemed dire until fate stepped in and she came to the attention of a woman who was scrolling through her Facebook feed.

The kind-hearted woman, Jennifer Wales, who runs her own rescue out of Los Angeles and has been saving homeless animals for 25 years, couldn’t resist the blind pooch’s sad face.

Wales said that the dog ‘reminded me so much of another dog that changed my life, who was also a blind pit bull,’ according to ABC News.

Wales calls the pooch a ‘Pibble’ – another term for American Pit Bull Terrier, instead of the much maligned ‘pit bull’ label.

Wales pulled the dog, now named Poly, from the shelter.

Wales realized that Poly had also recently given birth before she was dumped, and that her pups were probably sold.

Wales’ rescue group, Foreverhome Petrescue[3], raised enough money to cover Poly’s diagnostic testing, since Poly may have a congenital heart problem. Poly is now thriving in a foster home and Wales has started a Facebook page[4] to cover her exploits. Please spread the word so Poly finds a permanent home. And God bless Wales, her organization, and the kind person fostering Poly. Watch the touching video below, where Poly leaves the shelter and heads to her new foster home.
