Cosmos, the second dog, was found in Boca Raton, near Miami, dumped in the backyard of someone's home on a Saturday morning. "He was torn up head to toe. His tail had no hair," she says. "He was skin and bones, with abscesses on his face. His ears were cropped. And he was extremely depressed."
Based on the way Cosmos looks, Diaz suspects someone wanted him to be a fight dog, but he wasn't "good enough."
"If a dog doesn't do well in a fight, sometimes [dogfighters] will starve them and make them work for their food," she says. Eventually, Diaz believes, the dog's captors just discarded him.
