UK’s animal welfare group “Wild at Heart Foundation” went to great lengths to bring Maggie to their medical experts. Maggie’s injuries didn’t look good.
Doctors sew up her eyes to prevent further damage, but she still needed a lot of will-power to pull through this.
Maggie has recovered considerably in the past few months with the help of proper nursing and her steely resolve. Brighton’s Kasey Carlin initially took in Maggie as a foster, but has now formally adopted the sweet girl.
Maggie uses her sense of smell and hearing to navigate around. Kasey has also been training her with basic commands like “Stop,” “Left,” “Right,” “Step Up,” and “Step Down” that keep her safe.
Kasey also recognized Maggie’s affinity towards comforting others and got her enrolled for training as a therapy dog.
Currently, Maggie is a registered therapy dog who primarily helps students dealing with anxiety. In spite of her many setbacks; Maggie is living her best life helping others.
However, cops are still unable to find the monster who abused and mutilated her. Spread the word and help find her vicious abuser.
