As the years passed and Angel became more comfortable around people and other animals, rehoming the most difficult dog the rescue had ever seen became a viable option.
But finding the right fit would prove challenging.
“She was so deeply traumatized by what happened to her,” Le Mahieu explained. “We had often advertised her on our website and on our Facebook page, but whenever people came to meet her, they just couldn't understand that Angel needs time to make new friends.”
After seven years in the shelter — nearly her entire life — Angel’s rehabilitators had all but lost hope that she would ever find a home to call her own. For the sweet pup’s sake, they decided to give it one final go, this time making a direct appeal to the social media community.
