The Pit Bull’s justice isn’t just eye-catching, like most dogs. Although it doesn’t look like your average dog, it is still beautiful in its own way.
He is simply having a challenging start in life, which is completely out of his control. Despite the abuse and neglect, Justice still made it to the shelter
He ended up experiencing the feeling of being cherished and treated with respect, just like every dog should. Justice is now beating the odds and enjoying life. He can only pray that the perpetrators of his ɢʀᴜᴇsᴏᴍᴇ attack will pay the price.
In 2018, Indiana police discovered Justice walking down the street. He was probably two years old and suffered severe chemical burns all over his body that appeared to be intentional. He was only able to live alone for a short period of time thanks to some miracle.
Justice received the immediate necessary medical attention from the group. Initially he needed to be bandaged. Then his skin started to heal and some of his hair started to grow back slowly but steadily. Although he will never return to his pre-catastrophe form, that’s okay. He is loved by the people who work at the shelter for who he is, and it turns out others agree.
According to veterinarian Jessica Lynch, it was very depressing at first. Now that he has more personality, he’s clearly come a long way. He has grown into a really fun, strong young man.
After about a year of medical care and training, Justice was ready to go and many fans, including those from other states and countries, lined up to adopt him. However, the shelter will only accept applications from people living within a 100-mile radius because vets want to be nearby in case Justice needs any more treatments in the future.
Justice has amassed quite a following during his time at the shelter, so his parents continue to post updates about him on the shelter’s social media. They have made it clear that despite his ordeal, the sweet dog is now enjoying life. As expected, Justice was quickly adopted and he quickly adapted to his new home.
Due to his troubled past, Justice is difficult to teach as he is often rebellious and backs down when asked what to do. However, a particular dog trainer named Lexi has been working with him for over a year to train him and claims that Justice only has one more training session with her.
While it may seem like a small act, rolling over is a sign of vulnerability in most dogs. The belly rub proves that Justice really trusts his people because he knows he’ll never get hurt again when he’s with them. Justice is much more emotional than before, even asking her loving parents to rub her belly.
There wasn’t enough evidence to convict anyone of this heinous crime, but plenty of anonymous tips helped bring shelter closer.
If you have any information about Justice’s predicament, please contact Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter. The ᴄʀᴜᴇʟ person who abused him needs to be punished for their behavior as soon as possible.
