Meet Lucy. This gorgeous one-year-old pit bull has spent the vast majority of her life being beat up, abused and hurt by her owner in Cairo. You see, she’s a pure bred pit bull and she was a very expensive dog for this man to acquire, and he was unwilling to give her up when she apparently did not meet his standards of what a newborn dog should behave like, act like or just exist as. He has been repeatedly kicking her, and his abuse went so far at one point that he actually beat her in the face with a brick when he was upset with her to the point that he broke both sides of her jaw. The vet was unable to repair the dog’s broken jaw because the man did not care, and a local rescue group had to do something. The dog’s owner would not give her up so that they could help save her life; she would starve without her jaw being fixed.
That’s when the Egyptian rescue group contacted an American rescue group and came up with a plan. The man brought the dog back to see the vet soon after, and the group convinced the vet to tell the man that his dog died on the table when they were trying to help her, and that she was no longer with them. Then they transported the dog to the United States where she was given the medical help that she needs. She’s now with a loving foster family and looking for her forever family.
