Alesha Brandt’s daughter was getting off the bus eight years ago when she saw someone in a car open their door — and toss a dog out into the road. Brandt’s daughter rushed over to the tiny dog, saw what kind of state she was in and immediately called her mom.
Knowing they had to help, the mother-daughter pair rushed the little dog to the vet. She was incredibly skinny and deaf in one ear, and had an eye injury so severe she ended up needing to have her eye removed. She was so small and sickly that, at first, it didn’t seem like she was going to make it.
