Our "skinny" Marie is about 2 years-old and is a mixed pitbull breed who should weigh about 50-60 lbs.. However, this poor girl weighed in at a measly 27 lbs., which broke our hearts.
We started feeding her small meals every few hours. As she started to gain her strength back it was clear that she knew she was safe. Her tail began wagging and she gave everyone big sloppy kisses! Check out our video above of this happy girl. With medical treatment and TLC, she is on her way to becoming simply, Marie. Please consider making a Donation here to our Mend a Friend Fund and help her on her road to recovery and all the dogs and cats just like her that need extra care.
