"They moved away and left their pregnant dog behind," Cappelluti wrote in August when she first heard about Marie. "No food or water. On her own, with a big belly. The poor girl is sitting now day and night in front of the door waiting for her people to come back home."
It was hard to imagine how Marie could recover from such a sudden loss — but, with a little help from Cappelluti (who rushed to find her a foster family before she gave birth) Marie showed just how resilient she really was.
