We rescued this poor young girl (approx 1 1/2 years old) from the kill list in a packed Texas shelter on July 22nd. Scarlett appears to have been tortured (burns and puncture marks). She came in with her best bud, a Dutch Shepherd Mix we named Spencer (young, about a year old). Scarlett appears to have been protecting Spencer from harm. What a story these two could tell.
Despite her horrible treatment, Scarlett is a happy girl. Spencer is more reserved, but Scarlett cannot be without him. A Legends of the Paws volunteer picked up these darlings this morning and delivered them directly to the local airport where a volunteer pilot was waiting to fly them to Dallas where he was met by yet another pilot who flew them to our rescue coordinator and foster extraordinaire further North. From there, they were taken immediately to our vet who began preliminary treatment of Scarlett’s severely burned ear. All of these emergency arrangements were made in a short 24 hour period by dedicated volunteers. Watch their video here: https://youtu.be/bKOTLQTXlYs
Scarlett and Spencer deserve a good life with people who love them. If you think you could be that person or family, please fill out a no-obligation adoption application. Please continue to check back for updates and video.
