Lizzy survived one heartbreaking situation only to face another. This one to two-year-old Rat Terrier-Jack Russell Terrier mix was one of 11 dogs found chained outside and starving in Rowan County, North Carolina. An anonymous caller alerted animal control on June 12th, and they responded immediately. All 11 dogs were seized and taken to the Rowan County Animal Shelter the same day. The animal control officers indicated that the dogs had been without food or water for some time, and were near death. A local vet volunteered her services to exam the dogs and provide essential vet treatment. She determined that all the dogs should fully recover with proper care.
