The thing is, Frissen couldn't take Via home. She had just picked up another stray the day before. So she reluctantly drove the dog to a local shelter, hoping staff there would find a microchip.
No such luck. Frissen got to work, instead, on spreading Via's message far and wide on social media. She got a message from someone who knew Via. In fact, it turned out Via had been "rescued" once before. Someone had found her on the streets weeks earlier and managed to get her back to her owner. That earlier rescue described a yard filled with angry, barking pit bulls. It looked like dogs were being bred to fight.
