Unthinkable Cruelty Doesn’t Break Tennessee Dog’s Spirit

To say Dale H. has a soft spot for dogs would be an understatement. In his life, he has rescued and found homes for more than 100 dogs in need. One such pup, a five-year-old special needs dog named Daisy May, is one of Dale’s three resident dogs.

As a puppy, Daisy was a victim of unthinkable cruelty. She was kicked, beaten and left for dead. Knox County Animal Control stepped in, and Daisy was transported to the Young-Williams Animal Center, a 2012 $100K Challenge participant, in Knoxville, Tennessee.

“The veterinarians and staff fell in love with her, as they cared for her during her recuperation,” Dale says.  “They loved her so much, and they kept her until she found a home. Daisy May would not have had a chance without their compassion.”

Today, Daisy still lives with the lasting effects of animal cruelty. Due to extensive shoulder injuries, Daisy can only hop on her front legs. Because of the head trauma she suffered, her eyes "flicker" and cannot focus.

“Although she has suffered a great deal in her life, Daisy May is the happiest, most sociable and friendly dog I have seen in some time,” Dale says. “For her treats, she spins and spins, then hops in front of me. I have had Daisy for a year and a half now, and she is my closest friend.”

Bless you for helping the animals in need. It seems that Daisy could not be in a more loving home. And you have gained a forever friend.

No matter how hard some try, it is near impossible to break a dog's spirit, when all it wants is to be loved

So glad this dog found peace and a loving home

Thank you Dale, for stepping up to rescue Daisy. You reassure me there is still some compassion in human beings. There are so many people in this country & world who step up and help rescue animals. As far as the illiterate, ignorant trash who abused Daisy, I hope they suffer severely and are on the receiving end of neglect and cruelty.

This story alone is impressive. The fact that Dale H rescued over 100 dogs in his commitment to animal rights is astounding! I wonder how he began this inspiring mission and am glad to hear that these dogs are finding loving homes to nurture them back to normality.
