Man Rescues Dog Who Spent 4 Years Chained Up Outside

It’s so sad when I hear about dogs being neglected by their families. But I’m equally happy when I hear that they have been rescued. When I saw Dora’s photos I could clearly see the relief on her face that she finally has happy home!

After just 2 days with her new dad, Alex Flint, she wouldn’t leave his side!


He told DogHeirs more about Dora’s sad history: “She was bought by a family for their young daughter, who quickly lost interest in her. She was then left tied up outside for the next 4 years, basically ignored.”


“Thankfully she was fed and wasn’t physically abused. She had no manners, as far as socializing with other dogs or people, but the foster home that had her before me did an amazing job starting her on the road to recovery,” he said. Alex adopted Dora from Speaking of Dogs, a rescue in Toronto, Canada.

Dora must have known she was in good hands because she instantly fell asleep in Alex’s car the day he picked her up to take her home!


Alex said, “She still has some issues and needs off-leash training, as well as more socializing, but generally, she’s doing amazingly.”

From her look of adoration and trust Dora is giving Alex in the photo below, I’d say she’s clearly saying she’s finally found her dad!
