Potter started his life in a dog-fighting ring - he's already seen more cruelty and violence than any dog deserves.
The gray and white pit bull was found as a stray in Sauk Village, Illinois, earlier this month and taken to nearby County Line Pet Hospital. He was covered in injuries.
"Once we sedated him to clean his wounds, we started shaving and just kept uncovering more and more scars and wounds," Cassie Franta, one of Potter's rescuers at County Line, told The Dodo. "It was heartbreaking."
