This female pitbull refused to fight in the dog-fight. The price she had to pay gives me nightmares.


Pitbull Betsy was found a week ago on an abandoned block of land in Spain, by the non-profit, international animal protection organization "Let's Adopt". When the volunteers see her they cannot tell if the animal is still alive or not - because she was in such a bad condition. (Caution - very graphic photographs!)

Her entire neck has been skinned, her nose and jowls are in shreds, and the bones in her lower jaw are poking through. Nobody knows exactly what happened to Betsy, but presumably she took part in a dogfight. Because she didn't fight the other dogs, she was downright massacred and left to die by her owners.

Due to her dreadful injuries, Betsy's life hangs by a thread and she is suffering in agonizing pain.

But although everything seemed to be against her at first, the pitbull slowly but surely recovered. The biggest challenge now is to keep the infections in check and to reconstruct her lower jaw and lip.

The organization give daily updates on their Facebook-Site  about Betsy's condition, and additionally, you're able to donate here to her treatment.

What kind of person can treat an animal like this?! Hopefully Betsy remains on her path to recovery.
