I always thought relationships don’t become abusive overnight, but the story of this victim of domestic abuse and her eventual rescue are more powerful than I could’ve imagined. Coming to a safe house was the only chance for her and her dog of escaping her abuser and the phone call she made to the Rose Brooks center inspired them to start something beautiful.
After this girl was hit so hard she went through a wall, the only one who was there to stand by her side was her dog. A dog, the often forgotten victim of an abusive relationship laid on top of her taking a beating so she wouldn’t. When both of them reached the safe house, that dog was the first four-legged victim accepted there. That was just the start.
