One night in Brooklyn, New York, three men walked into a neighborhood while everyone was asleep. They were perceptive of their surroundings and made sure no one was around. A few moments later, one of them left and came back with a dog.
Confirming no one else was there, they hurriedly tied the dog to a fence and left. It was freezing that night, and the poor dog was left outdoors. It waited nine hours until a kind couple finally found it and took it to the animal rescue group Mr. Bones & Co.
The dog, now named Gracie, needed to see the vet right away. She was seriously injured, and emergency surgery was deemed necessary. Despite the severe trauma she suffered, her spirits remained unimpaired.
Gracie loved people and did not show any aggression toward other dogs. She was so sweet and friendly. The rescuers suspected she belonged to a loving family but, unfortunately, ended up being a bait dog. Perhaps, she ran away and got lost or was stolen from her home.
While the dog recovered, the rescuers of Mr. Bones & Co. and a bunch of Good Samaritans shared Grace’s photo on the internet. They hoped someone would recognize and claim her. But weeks quickly went by, and no one came for her.
After various surgeries, Gracie continued to her foster home. Under the care of her foster mom and dad, she bounced back. She became healthy and learned how to be happy again.
As soon as Gracie was ready for adoption, Tanya, a supporter of Mr. Bones & Co., stepped forward. She recently lost her 15-year-old rescue Pittie when she saw Gracie’s photo online. She followed the dog’s story and waited eagerly for it to heal.
Tanya and Gracie have been together for almost 7 years. They are each other’s best friends and share an extremely tight bond. Wherever one is, the other one will surely be there, too, because Tanya promised that Gracie will never be alone again, ever.
