This story brought tears to our eyes.
Stevie is a basset hound – terrier mix who was rescued from his abusive home in South Carolina.
8-year-old Stevie was found chained up alongside another furry pal. Unfortunately, the dogs were likely chained for a majority, if not all, of their lives. The Lancaster SPCA took the pup in and cared for him until his transfer to Diamonds in the Ruff in New York.
The Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue is a fully-volunteer and foster-based rescue facility catering mainly to Niagara and Eerie counties. The organization was founded in 2011 with the sole goal of helping to save as many animals as possible from euthanasia.
