Cheers’ life has hardly begun, and already she’s suffered so much.  Someone tied a rope around her neck so tightly that she could scarcely eat or breathe.  Her circulation was cut off so badly that her head swelled to immense proportions.  But thankfully she was rescued, and now is making a full recovery!

Two good Samaritans in Georgia came across this cute little girl, who was struggling to survive.  They didn’t know what was wrong with her, but they gave her some food.  It was when they saw her choking on the tiny bites that they realized a rope was tied so tightly around her neck that they could barely see it.

She was brought in to Fulton County Animal Services, and is now being treated and recovering with Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs.  Her eyes were infected and full of pus, and due to her injuries, it was decided that it would be best for her to stay at the veterinarian’s office to recover.

Now she is doing much better!  Soon she will be ready for a home.  If you are interested in adopting Cheers or just following her progress, give Second Chance a like on Facebook.
