4 years ago, a police officer in Phoenix, Arizona found an injured pit bull. He was in very poor condition.
He was emaciated and covered in ticks, and he was so dirty and swarthy and he was so swollen and scarred.
The worst thing was that the dog’s ears were bitten off, indicating that it had been used in dogfighting.
One of his ears was completely ripped off; the other was rotten and could not be kept.
A policeman grabbed him and took him to a local shelter. The rescue team was unable to retrieve the dog.
They contacted Jeannette and asked if she would agree to adopt him.
They agreed, so her husband pulled her out of the shelter and immediately took her to the veterinary clinic.
They didn’t think he would survive.
As a result, he suffered from illnesses. Rescuers said he was in the worst condition they had ever seen.
But, despite everything, he loved life.
He was terrified, but there was hope for life in his eyes.
He will need to stay at the vet for a while. They named it Calista.
The family visited him every day.
They really wanted to let him know that everything will be fine in his life.
People from the emergency service also came to visit him.
After intensive treatment and operations, he improved. About a week later, he returned home to Jeannette.
A few months later, he was given up for adoption, Jeannette changed her mind.
Now they can no longer imagine him anywhere but with them. They had to emotionally prepare for it.
At first he was afraid of everything, and it was very joyful to see him do something.
He had health issues and was being treated for mast cell cancer.
But he loves life, food, people and animals. He is just amazing!
