Violet ended up in a kill shelter, alone and afraid. She was so severely malnourished and frightened. She likely would have been euthanized quickly due to her poor condition, writes ilovemydogsomuch
Fortunately Whitney, a volunteer with I Stand With My Pack, heard about the Shar-Pei and raced to pick her up.
The first stop after freeing Violet from the shelter was the vet’s office. The volunteers were nervous to see what she weighed. You could see every bone on Violet’s body. The numbers don’t lie, a Shar-Pei should weigh between 40-60 lbs. Violet was under twenty. Their hearts broke for the poor dog. Why would anyone do this to an innocent animal ?
Violet’s transformation is straight out of a storybook. To see what happens next, check out the video below. We promise it’s loaded with feel-good moments with adorable doggy smiles. We are so grateful for rescue groups and The Dodo for featuring stories like this one. Violet is another example of a shelter dog that can make the perfect pet. Remember to always support local rescues and shelters. They need our help.
