Maggie, a pit bull, was found chained in a backyard in North Carolina. She was in need of food and medical attention. She had been left out, forgotten about, and her owner hadn’t even given her a name because she was deaf.
“She was very skinny and you could see her ribs and you could see where she sat all the time on the concrete. All the hair was worn off of the back of her legs,” said Maria Sansone with Diamonds in the Ruff.
Jessica Czamara of Niagara Falls heard about Maggie through a friend and knew she had to meet her. Czamara is also deaf and felt she and Maggie might be a perfect fit.
“I feel like I could relate to the dog because I’m deaf, and the dog is deaf. There are some things that the dog does that we do in the deaf community,” said Czamara.
Now Maggie has a new life with a family that doesn’t underestimate her just because she’s deaf. Czamara and Maggie instantly connected and is now part of the family.
“She’s just such a sweet dog. She gives lots of kisses,” said Czamara. “She’s a great addition to our family.”
