We may never know the bleak beginnings of Kinzie the pit bull's life, but we do know that she was never lavished with toys.
Sickly and covered in chemical burns, Kinzie was found tied to a pole in Chicago.
Furever Rescue came to her rescue, and brought her to emergency veterinary care. Still screaming in pain from the burns on her skin, Kinzie had a long struggle ahead of her.
After days of care for her injuries, Kinzie was released into a foster home on Saturday, where she's slowly learning what it means to be a dog with a regular life.
