A dog whose abusive owners inspired thousands of animal lovers around the world with her tenacity and spirit of survival. Her story, sadly, is a reflection of the vile and heartless actions of some individuals who brutally assault these good people, causing them great physical and psychological pain.
The dog who lost an eye now enjoys a new beginning.
This is the story of Bubbles, a bull terrier dog who was shot by a callous person and suffered the loss of an eye and a portion of her jaw. She had a brutal beating, as if that weren’t enough, according to the diagnosis.
This adorable dog was saved by a Houston, Texas dog shelter when she was only six months old. She had previously suffered tragedy.
The abuse started when she was only six months old.
At the shelter, they performed all necessary tests, including a CT scan that revealed the precise trajectory of the gunshot.
Unfortunately, the bullet’s severe wounds caused damage to his inner ear, the loss of his right eye, and a portion of his jaw.
Despite the length of his recovery, he eventually produced the best results.
Bubbles’ road to recovery was long, but not this time because she had the support of kind and considerate people who did everything in their power to keep her healthy and strong.
Ike Blanchard and Kilyn Horton Blanchard, who own a mobile dog grooming business, volunteered to take care of the dog.
She is an outgoing, playful dog who enjoys playing with kids.
When they found out about her predicament in 2017, they felt obliged to help her. Regarding this, Kilyn remarked: “She fractured the joint in her right jaw, but the broken bones had turned into a calcified mass. The opening of Bubbles’ mouth was just approximately an inch and a half wide. It’s incredible that she can eat.”
The couple first only meant to save the puppy, but after being won over by her kindness and will to live, they decided to adopt her.
Bubbles had found a loving home and could now continue his recovery in a place where he would always get the attention he needed.
Kilyn had emotional memories of her adoption:
She was dozing in her kennel when we opened it, but she immediately emerged, laid her head on my breast, and purred for a cuddle.
The touching dog’s story touched thousands of people from all over the world, cutting across all borders. Bubbles is now healthy and content; her injuries are behind her after four years of recovery.
She is now a content dog who is excited about this new opportunity; she enjoys softly waving her tail and grinning when helping others.
Bubbles enjoys the attention and is very content.
Their foster parents encourage others to take in puppies with traumatic pasts. They require special care as well as a lot of love and patience to help them break free from the shell they were imprisoned in.
Although there is a lot of cruelty in the world, we want people to know that just because a dog is injured or mistreated in a shelter, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is damaged; sometimes they are simply scared. Kilyn continued, “All they need is a little love, and they have a lot to give in return.”
A book was written about Bubbles because of his increased fame. It’s a wonderful story that encourages compassion and understanding for others.
“Currently, we are attempting to persuade her to collaborate with other animal rescue groups in order to spread awareness of animal mistreatment by visiting schools and teaching children about how to treat animals humanely. We want to emphasize her future and show that her horrific past should not dictate it, but we also want to tell her story. We also aim to promote kindness and goodwill toward others
There are numerous stories that influence and move us, just like Bubbles did. Unfortunately, the violent tsunami that has engulfed our whole civilization includes animal mistreatment.
It is crucial to underline the need to halt and prevent animal cruelty; the first step is raising awareness of how important it is to love and respect animals.
Of course, love is the most potent remedy for healing old wounds.
If we really want to stop violence, we must strive every day to abolish the abuse of all sentient beings. May our actions be the best reflection of who we are on the inside.
