We are going to take a trip back in time to 12/10/2015 when we first met a dog we would name Hope ❤️ Hope, at 12 years old, came to us weighing a mere 21 pounds and we had no idea what breed she was 😩 Now because it is so difficult for those of us who love and treasure all animals to believe anyone would intentionally starve a dog, we began to run a series of tests.
Our minds, and those of the DVM’s that care for all animals, have a difficult time accepting that an animal can be in this condition, suffering and wasting away without a medical reason and not at the hands of a monster 😩 At the end of the day, all of Hope’s tests came back with one conclusion, Hope was suffering and slowly dying from starvation 😩
Hope was confiscated from her owners home after someone reported hearing sounds of what appeared to be a “dying animal” and AC went to the home and found Hope in the owners back yard wasting away 😩 LNPB pressed to file charges and though it took close to a year, we won and got #justiceforHope
Hope went on to be an absolutely beautiful dog, living a life of love and kindness and she did not spend one day wanting for food ❤️ Hope passed away at her loving fosters in 2017 after falling down, suddenly stricken with an aneurysm that took her life 💔 Hope had an amazing life for over 2 years with the most amazing foster, and we all got to witness the amazing journey of a starving and dying dog we had lovingly named Hope ❤️
Here at LNPB we are no strangers to those ordinary everyday miracles we see , so stay tuned as , paw in hand, we are about to embark on another miraculous journey with a loving animal named Nicky ❤️ Perhaps Hope’s foster mommy is right in saying Hope’s spirit has returned ❤️ Perhaps, just perhaps, Hope is paying forward the kindness and love she knew and she will continue to guide and protect the animals like Nicky here at LNPB ❤️ Perhaps, just perhaps, she continues to remind us that #WherethereisLovethereisHope ❤️ tw, LNPB
