Starved Pit Bull – Meet Twiggy

Twiggy before being rescued

Twiggy was found along the highway running through traffic when a good samaritan picked her up. This poor sweetheart was truly skin and bones. We don’t know if her previous owner just seriously neglected her, or if she was on her own for a long period of time before she was found.

She is an outgoing, loving and very friendly dog. She was taken to the vet immediately upon rescue and in addition to being malnourished, she was diagnosed with parasites and treated. Fortunately, she tested negative for heartworms.

Twiggy has a zest for life and is a very deserving little girl. She is currently in a boarding facilty and we would love to see her in a foster home or forever home very soon. She deserves to live the pampered life of a cherished companion!

Update: Twiggy has been adopted! Special thanks to Carol Turner for her assistance with Twiggy, and to Twiggy’s sponsors: Jim and Mary King, Rhonda Cooke, Jennifer Price.
