Dolly the pit bull

Dolly, a Florida pit bull, was a stray when she arrived at Seminole County Animal Control in 2009. She was adopted, but the ending wasn’t happy.

She was returned to the shelter earlier this year — with cuts, scrapes and scars.

The owner said Dolly was starting fights with his other dogs, but animal control thinks Dolly was being used as a “bait dog” in a dogfighting operation, according to TV station WESH.

Now Dolly’s wounds have healed, and Erica Daniel, the shelter worker who intended to foster her, has decided to keep her. Erica also made the video that’s above.

Dolly also has a Facebook page.

OK, two grown people sitting here with tears in their eyes–and one of them is a guy. There is such nobility in their faces, even when they’re so terribly hurt. I’m glad Dolly has found a home with people who love and appreciate her.

I am so sad and happy at the same time. The biggest of hugs to the folks who shared her story. My prayers and wishes for Dolly and those like her for always better days.
