The bite marks on her face, her broken legs and her ground-down teeth - all telltale signs Lola had been used as a bait dog in a dogfighting ring.
Lola was discovered by an animal control officer back in March after she was left for dead in Stark County, Ohio.
"She was found lying in a stream, caught in a bunch of barbed wire," Dr. Jennifer Jellison, a veterinarian who cared for Lola, told The Dodo. "She couldn't even get up. A humane officer had to basically crawl on his hands and knees to get to her."
Lola was brought directly to Jellison's animal hospital in North Canton, Ohio, through a special program she started that allows her to take in the worst cases of abuse and injury. Jellison pays for much of the care for these special cases out of her own pocket.
