Dog Was Confined In A Cage But Gets Rescued

February 23rd, 2018

We hear stories about animals who have been abused by their owners, and it is hard to imagine anyone treating their pet that way. But time and again, abused animals turn up proving that some humans are immensely cruel. Luckily for this pup, he was rescued and brought back to good health.

Landis is a pit bull mix who was rescued at the age of two years old. Most dogs his age are fully grown, but this one was another story. The poor pup had been kept in a cage that was too small for him, and it had devastating effects on his health.

The dog could not stand all the way up, even when he was free of his tiny prison. He hunched over, and it was obvious that he was in pain. He was taken in by an animal shelter in Georgia, and they quickly contacted Second Chance Rescue in New York City.

After just one look at this dog, Second Chance agreed to take him in. They wanted to do everything in their power to return Landis to the proud pup he should have been.

“To look at him, you would guess he’d been forced to grow up in & live in a small cage. Well, guess what, you’d be right!! Where do these monsters come from that walk among us?!” the organization wrote on Facebook.

The good news was that the damage done to poor Landis was not permanent. The dog was treated by an orthopedic specialist who avoided surgery because of the pain it would bring to the pup.

Over time, the dog’s condition improved. Landis was ready to be adopted, and he had a long list of people waiting to claim him as their own. He ultimately moved in with a family in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

This dog’s forever home couldn’t have been more perfect. It was only minutes from the beach, where Landis could work on his strength with his canine siblings. AND it was close to a hydrotherapy facility, so the pup would never have to miss an appointment.

Landis is now happily building his strength up more with each passing day, and he is thrilled to be a part of his new family. This dog’s journey is proof that no matter how heartbreaking a story may begin, it can always have a happy ending.
