When two pit bulls were found dumped in a park just outside Philadelphia, people thought they were at death’s door. One of them, who would come to be known as Gracie, was cold to the touch. Her friend, Layla, was curled up close to her, as if trying to protect her.
“She would not leave her side,” Officer Russ “Wolf” Harper, cofounder of Justice Rescue, told The Dodo. "Anytime someone tried to get close, her friend tried to cover the other … It was almost like she was going to take the beating for the other one.”
