There is simply no excuse for any kind of animal cruelty. Abusing a pet is an act of evil; these gentle creatures simply love us and want to be near us. So, to break their trust, their minds, and their bodies is a truly despicable act. A dog in British Columbia had to endure one of the worst cases of abuse you’ll ever see, but her story didn’t end there.

Her upsetting conditions were brought to light when concerned neighbors contacted The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. They informed the organization about a dog that was being abused in plain sight but had no one to help her.

For nearly a decade, she was tied to a heavy chain and forced to sit in a mess of her own feces and mud. Not only that, but she had to endure the abuse of the animals that called themselves her owners.

The family that chained her to the ground called her “Judas” and forced her to experience a living hell. She was malnourished, dehydrated, and severely neglected. She was urinated upon and was made to endure severe weather outside with nothing to keep her warm.

She could barely hobble through the mud when she was found, due to her poor health, severe arthritis, and heavy clumps of matted fur that were sticking to her body.

But the BCSPCA didn’t help her. In fact, they didn’t even issue the owners a fine. Instead, they offered them $50 to put Judas down.

After more concerned calls and numerous complaints, the family gave in. They were going to kill their dog they abused for a decade.

That’s when a neighbor discovered Animal Advocates. The kind people from the organization rushed to her side – and they miraculously arrived just before she was to be put down.

At the shelter, caring workers shaved off the matted clumps of fur and gave her a bath. Once the hair was gone, it was obvious that Judas was emaciated from years of being malnourished. Once she was clean, cuddled, and shown love for maybe the first time in her life, Judas managed to give a feeble wag or two of her tail.

The organization was able to find her a loving home with two loving parents, Mike and Alyssa. They lovingly renamed her “Judith” and were determined to give her a life filled with joy. Even though she had known nothing but cruelty, Judith was friendly and loving, ready to make up for lost time.

When her arthritic hips couldn’t hold up her body, Animal Advocates helped find her a cart so that she could still run and play with her new family.

It took 10 years, but Judith finally knew love. Her happy dog smiles and wildly wagging tail put that frozen, muddy yard far behind her.

Millions of people have since learned about Judith and her miraculous rescue, inspiring them to save dogs that were being abused by their owners. Not only did Judith have her own happy ending, but she managed to help hundreds of other dogs with her story.

She only got to live with Mike and Alyssa for 18 months before peacefully passing away but in that short time, she made up for the time she lost during those 10 years on a chain.
