Everyone wants a puppy that’s all shiny and new. But what about the dogs that have been left behind, or even worse, abused?
Well, when Carol Jacobs and her husband first met Xena; she had no fur, from her head to her tail.
While the loss of fur could have come from an apparent food allergy and flea infestation, the other things Xena lacked, such as her ears, didn’t happen by chance.
Xena was a bait dog for dog fighting and her former owner cut her ears in order for her to fight.
Despite the fact that her skin was all rutty and pink and scabby, to point you couldn’t tell she was black, all the Jacobs wanted to do was love her back to life again, not knowing she would be the piece that completes their family.
Xena was rescued from the hands of evil twice. Severely bruised and hairless, Xena met a family who had no intentions of keeping her but later won their hearts over, teaching us all a lesson on how to truly forgive.
