But there are two dogs left behind, a male and a puppy who is about the same age as Wendy.
They're the ones who couldn't be saved. At least not yet.
"These guys used to have 16 dogs on the property," Budin explains. "The fact that they were down to four and they gave us two, we felt like we're not going to completely strip them of dogs."
Instead, the last chained dogs were brought doghouses and longer, lightweight chains.
They could even touch each other.
Although their lives have improved, the two remaining dogs serve as reminders that no animal deserves to spend a life in chains. Want to help them, along with thousands of dogs in similar circumstances?
