Meet Spirit Golden Heart, a pit bull dog who LAPD officers discovered starving to death on the streets of Los Angeles. Ghetto Rescue stated on its website that the woman was “hours away from death with enormous fat ticks eating off her malnourished body and maggots growing in exposed wounds.”
Since we were aware of her strength, we gave her the name Spirit Golden Heart (can you see the golden heart on her body?). Spirit’s recovery process started when the rescuers hurried her to the veterinarian. The doggie’s polyarthritis was soon identified, along with fevers and swollen joints.
“Her red blood count is considerably higher and her protein level has stable after getting a tremendous quantity of IV fluids, blood transfusions, multiple medical visits, and many days in the hospital.” The dog weighed 46 pounds at last check, had excellent blood work, and was going off of medication.
She is loved by her foster mother, who describes her as a “chubby couch potato,” therefore she deserves a good life. Spirit, you deserve the best!
