Imagine a two month old puppy, locked in a room for hours, barking with all her might for someone to save her, only to be hit and told to shut up.  The door slams shut, footsteps walk away and she stands tall and barks again.  She will not be ignored.  She will not be broken. 

She is well aware, this is not love.  She knows because she had it once.  Where she was cared for and free to be herself.  She understands this more than he will ever know.  She knows what it is like to be acknowledged and respected, it is not here.  She demands what she can not be given.  She will not stop until she is heard.  Every blow makes her dig deeper into her soul and makes her fight harder.  She will not be broken.

She started this fight without any intentions of giving up.  He rubs her nose in it, kicks her, hits her, shoots her with a pellet gun, the battle has only begun.  Finally at long last, the call is made, he can't take her anymore.  She is going home.

Weary from her battle, her emotional wounds exposed.  Blaze curls in a tight ball, scared and in shock as the terrors of what happened to her unfold within her.  She is home, where she was born, but it has changed.  Gone are her brothers and sisters and the fun of being together.  She feels lost.  Mommy and Daddy tend to her emotional and physical scars, soaking her with their tears.  They understand.  They understand more than she will ever know.  Just a shell of herself, she fought so hard to be back here, she test them the only way she knows how.  She barks and barks.  Never a hand was laid on her and she proves their love is forever.

I've heard complaints from people that breeders or rescue organizations give them the third degree before allowing them (or not) to adopt a dog.

Reading Blaze's story, it makes perfect sense to make someone jump through lots of hoops before they're allowed a dog. The cost to the dog is just too high. And if you really want a dog, providing vet references, answering lots of questions, having home visits, etc. is not too high a price to pay.

And, even then, I guess there's no way to guarantee a dog will end up in the right home.

Thank you for sharing Blaze's story.

That's a very tough story to read, can't imagine how poor Blaze lived it. At least now she knows she is safe and loved.

What a horribly, sad story, but ultimately a very happy ending for Blaze. I hope she can overcome her emotional scars in time with all the love you are giving her.

Definitely tears in my eyes... poor Blaze. I hate that she had to go through that - I'm so happy she's with you now and smothered in love, like she deserves.
