Abandoning pets is never cool, but ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴing a ʙʟɪɴᴅ dog who’s sick and scared out of her wits is an especially inconceivable act. Unfortunately, that’s what happened to Poly, this loveable ʙʟɪɴᴅ pit bull who was rescued from a public park.
Poly must have been absolutely terrified when she was abandoned – the ʙʟɪɴᴅ pit bull was found cowering on a bench in a park in Santa Barbara, California, earlier this month. Alone in a strange place, she was too scared to move. It wasn’t clear how long she’d been sitting alone.
Three-year-old Poly was taken in by Santa Barbara County Animal Services, but it soon became clear that she would need more help than they could provide. In addition to being completely ʙʟɪɴᴅ, Poly also has a sick other. It was also clear that she had just given birth – though there were no puppies to be found.
The kind-hearted woman, Jennifer Wales, who runs her own rescue out of Los Angeles and has been saving homeless animals for 25 years, couldn’t resist the ʙʟɪɴᴅ pooch’s sad face.
Wales said that the dog ‘reminded me so much of another dog that changed my life, who was also a ʙʟɪɴᴅ pit bull,’
Wales calls the pooch a ‘Pibble’ – another term for American Pit Bull Terrier, instead of the much-maligned ‘pit bull’ label.
Forever Home Pet Rescue, an all-volunteer rescue in the Los Angeles area, stepped in to take Poly and set her up in a caring foster home. “She is a very sweet girl and deserves far better than she has gotten in life so far,” the rescue said in a press release.
Poly, however, is living in a caring foster home while they look for new owners. Poly may not be able to see, but she can definitely tell that her life has changed forever. She is being cared for and loved more than anyone. When she’s healthy enough, her rescuers will begin making plans for Poly to be adopted into a family of her own. She’ll never have to be alone and scared again.
