Bonnie, a Border Collie, has lost part of her face, part of her front left paw and her tail.
There is a suspicion that people could make such wounds.
Bonnie was scheduled for euthanasia.
No one wanted to deal with her treatment, and there was no question of a foster family.
The animal rescue center in the UK found out about the dog, raised funds and transported the sufferer to Canterbury.
After effective treatment, the volunteers began searching for people ready to take Bonnie into the family.
Photos and stories of this dog were published on Facebook, but alas… No one wanted to mess with such a dog.
This was until the moment when a post about Bonnie caught the eye of one lady. It was civil servant Kate Comfort, a big animal lover.
With great difficulty, the lady managed to persuade her husband to accept this dog into the family. By that time, they already had three dogs.
At first, Kate took the dog for fostering, saying that she would take care of the dog until she found the perfect home for her.
The fact that there were no people willing to take the dog into the family led Kate to leave Bonnie with her, the poor thing was very vulnerable and needed love.
So it happened. The Comfort family adopted Bonnie!
Kate and her husband Ross started a fundraiser for the Border Collie to get a prosthetic leg.
The wound on her limb continued to open, and the couple realized that the leg had to be amputated.
Kate says: “Our Bonnie is perfectly imperfect, we love her for who she is. And if someone is offended by the way she looks, then this is their problem, not ours.”
Although Bonnie’s looks sometimes get negative reviews, she has more than 25,000 fans on Instagram.
The woman originally set up a social media page for her when she was trying to raise money for a dog to have surgery.
The couple was amazed at how much Bonnie is interesting to people.
Despite the dog abuse in her life, Kate is sure that Bonnie is not at all afraid of people. She is a very forgiving dog.
“Animals forgive people – they never cease to amaze me with how tolerant these creatures are,” says Kate, the woman who rescued, loved and adopted Bonnie the Border Collie.
