This girl has spent six long, cold, lonely years on a chain in her fenced-in yard.  A fenced yard, and she was still chained up!  But Robert Misseri and the rest of the Guardians of Rescue crew made sure she had a warm bed tonight, and she definitely thanked them!

 

She jumped up on her heroes to thank them before excitedly leading them off the property.

Here she is now:

 

“Enjoying a bed, a bully stick, and so much needed love,” Taylor said on the GoR Facebook page.  “She reminds me that there is still good in the world...the true definition of resilient! Please spread the word and help us get this sweet girl a home!”

    • If.. IF the dog was being mistreated (though he looks well fed and clean and anything but abused to me) then the local authorities should have been notified. You don’t play cowboy and go trespass and steal someones dog. You liberals think you can do anything you want. This guy is lucky someone didn’t come out of the house with a gun. You’re not hero, you’re in instigator. If you wanted to to good, you’d notify the local authorities.

      • Sounds like you may have been the owner? That was it, the dog was fed and watered though obviously the water wasn’t monitored so it froze. Did she ever receive any love? Was she let into the house on cold days and nights? Oh, maybe she had a peeing in-doors problem, so no? YOUR FAULT! Train her, love her, make her part of the family or let her go to someone who will. You’re lucky someone didn’t come INTO the house with a gun! So owner or not, if you don’t have the intelligence or capacity to love a pet like it should be, DON’T get one. Be satisfied with a stuffed toy or a picture.

      • Liberal?? What does that have to do with treating animals humanely??? I am a conservative and I applaud this group for doing the right thing. The story plainly says that nobody else that she notified would do anything. This has NOTHING to do with politics. It has EVERYTHING to do with human decency!!!

      • Well i am not a Libtard. I am a gun toten nascar driving jesus freak and in my opinion any dog on a 6 foot chain for 6 years is mistreatment. I guess you think a well fed black person on a chain forced to pick cotton his whole life is a good thing. As long as you eat everyday how can there be abuse? Whats wrong with human trafficking? Those little girls should be thankful they eat everyday.

        • How do you know the dog was never off the chain? Obviously it had been well socialized or she would have been growling and barking at intruders. Not all dogs are inside animals. Our Basset Hound hated being inside, even when it was below zero. She had a good dog house with straw, but she was outside. Did her water freeze, yes. Did we make sure we gave her fresh water, yes. Was she abused, no. My Pit is an inside dog, but he doesn’t have enough coat to be outside when it is cold. I don’t see where anyone in this story watched to see if the dogs were played with or loved on during any part of the day except the few minutes they were there.

    • It is wonderful that this dog is free to live the life that he should have been living. It is cruel to tie or chain them up. We as humans would not want it so why should we
      do it to our pets. If you do not have the room or a place for them to run then do not get an animal.

    • The fence was damaged. Plus, its possible the dog was destructive. I’m not saying they were right to do that, my ex tried to do that with our dog, but luckily i took the dog with me and she has a much better life now.

      • What are you an idiot? Who cares!!! No animal should be confined like that. If they ARE dangerous action could (should) be taken after animal is observed…

        • You’re the one who sounds like an idiot. So trespassing and stealing someones dog is the answer? First of all there is no crime against keeping your dog on a chain. Second, the dog looks well fed, clean and healthy and not at all abused. Thirdly, the whole six years thing is highly suspicious. Why wait six years to speak up? why no after 6 months or a year or 4 years or….??? If.. IF the dog was being mistreated, then the local authorities should have been notified. Yo don’t go and steal someones dog.

          • Wow, maybe you better check into your state laws regarding animals. It is now illegal in most states to keep your dogs chained up. It is also illegal to keep them outside in frigid temperatures.
            But if you don’t have a problem with it, let’s try chaining you up and see how you like it.
            These are living creatures and deserve kindness, love and respect. If the dog was mistreated in anyway, they do 10% deserve to have it taken away.
            Clearly though, you must feel this kind of treatment to animals is acceptable and that is why you seem to be the only person who argues that these dogs being taken away to a better life was wrong.
            Go chain yourself in a hole.
