Makes me sick what some people do to pets, especially dogs. Glad there are people who make it their life's work to rescue abused and neglected animals.

Thanks for sharing this story. Whoever is taking care of Roo will provide a good and loving home for her. I hope to hear more updates about Roo and her road to recovery. Not all humans are garbage, I hope that Roo can trust another human again.

I've just read Day One and Day Two and bookmarked the page. Roo's rescuer is a truly special person. I have a feeling life is going to be more than okay for Roo from now on..

Amazing story-Roo has a long journey ahead of her, I am going to try and follow this story.

Roo looks and reminds me of my girl Roxy who is a former puppy mill momma that spent her entire first two years in a cage, was not socialized and had been abused verbally and physically.

I can so relate to the pictures of Roo hiding under the table and behind the toilet. My girl hid behind the toilet in the bathroom the first week I got her-she wouldn't get up and walk, my DH had to pick her up and carry her outside to go potty. She was terrified of being inside and us.

If I didn't know better, I'd say I was reading my girl's story.

Roo

This is such a heartbreaking story, that I'm praying will have a happy ending, because Brian is saving Roo!!
Roo reminds me so much of my Smooch!

Could help but shed a tear...

I feel so blessed to have Pixie in my life and everyday I hope that she feels the same for having me in hers.

How are people capable of being such monsters?!?!?

I would love to follow the happy ending story of Roo, but didnt find the link for it... anyone? Thanks

After reading day 2, the thing that sticks to mind is how unbelieveble dogs are! They just trust and love with their full heart. I hope Roo will be able to do it again soon

People like Roo's rescuer deserve a medal and recognition from the city. People of his kind are of a rare "breed". Filled with compassion, sympathy, and love, they just want to share their happiness with others or in this case another animal. These sorts of people really do make the world a better place and really make others think about the little things. You can already tell that Roo has so much trust in him and it'll only grow from there.

First thread I read this morning, what a feel good story. Seriously, thank you for sharing this.
