Who would extend an olive branch to help save Olive? A three-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix, Olive was dumped off on a rural road in front of farmer’s house on December 12th. She was freezing, starving and frightened. Animal control was called and Olive went to the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. The shelter placed her in a temporary foster home. Olive had multiple scars on her head, neck and back legs. The vet determined that Olive had been used as a bait dog. Unfortunately, she also was heartworm positive.
