Dogs that were trained to dogfight were automatically euthanized after being rescued. Rescuers would assume that they were aggressive and couldn’t be changed.
Forty-seven dogs were rescued from Michael Vick’s dogfighting ring. Due to the bad reputation of Michael Vick, they became viral on several social media platforms.
Groups across the country wanted to try and save the dogs as well as shut down all dog fighting rings. Michael Vick was their first win.
The rescuers saw Ginger, one the rescued dogs, in a corner shivering. She was terrified. The dog didn’t allow anyone to touch her.
The shelter introduced Ginger to Stacy Dubuc, a volunteer who loved to foster dogs. Stacy knew from the moment she saw Ginger that she could help the dog live confidently.
Journey to forever home
Getting Ginger into the house was a struggle for Stacy. Stacy was careful with her and lured her into the apartment with some treats.
Stacy knew she had to be gentle. She slowly started to introduce Ginger to everyday things because it seemed that Ginger had no experience in living in a loving home.
Ginger used only to eat treats. She eventually learned to like food Stacy prepared for her. Stacy promised Ginger she would live the best life possible. So after eight months of caring for the dog, Stacy decided to adopt her.
After adopting Ginger, Stacy moved in with a friend who had another dog. They were worried about how the dogs would act, but surprisingly, the dogs got along well.
Stacy was ecstatic that her dog that was once scared of other dogs, finally had dog friends. Ginger wasn’t the dog who was scared to run around and play anymore. Ginger was a sign that all dogs, no matter what their breed was deserved a second chance at life.
