All Violet ever desired was to please her family by being a good puppy. Violet had a kind heart and a sweet disposition, but her family was nasty to her and didn’t care about her safety, wellbeing, or feelings. Poor Violet only experienced abuse, and eventually, her family decided to entirely reject her. The terrified mastiff shoved out the car window as they sped along a road in Clinton, Maryland after placing her inside.
A passerby on Clinton Road was horrified to see a huge dog being thrown out of a car’s window like an empty soda cup. As soon as they could, they came to a stop and hurried to aid Violet, who was later taken to Prince George’s County Animal Control.
.Violet was sent to Mutts Matter Rescue after being taken in by animal control, who wanted to do everything in their power to save the sad, abused dog. Because Violet had not only been tossed from a car but also because she was eerily emaciated and obviously had been hungry for a while.
Debbie Gretz, a volunteer with Mutts Matter Rescue, was given charge of Violet since she had experience with neglected and critically underweight canines. When Gretz first met Violet and realized the miserable state in which she was in, her heart ached for the poor pup, and she was unable to help to cry.
Gretz was aware that she had to help this dog reclaim her life and provide her with the love and attention she had been missing for so long. The poor pup had so much of her life and dignity taken from her, but Gretz was determined to at least give her a happy and prosperous future.
Violet was extremely underweight, only weighed about 60 pounds, and had unsightly pressure sores all over her body that needed to be cleaned and bandaged. When Gretz hugged the poor mastiff, she could feel every bone in her body, and her blood work revealed the typical side effects of starvation.
Her rescuers have hypothesized that Violet has been kept locked up and used for breeding because her pressure sores were thought to be caused by spending a lot of time chained up. Violet had endured a great deal of trauma, but she still had faith in people. She loved Gretz immediately and frequently came to sit her head in his lap to express her love and gratitude.
Violet was given five small meals by Gretz each day, and she gradually became stronger and healthier. She gained the confidence to climb the stairs on her own, as well as the energy to play with her friends and go for walks.
Her weight increased, and her pressure sores healed well. Within a few months, Violet had undergone a complete transformation. She had increased in weight from a startling 60 pounds to a stunning 138 pounds, and she was beaming with joy. Although Violet’s road to recovery was long and not without difficulty, she was able to thrive because of Gretz’s love and dedication.
And Gretz didn’t just assist her in physically recovering. She gave Violet every ounce of the love and safety she had never experienced but had always desired and deserved. Violet has transformed from a scared and heartbroken skeletal shell of a dog to a bright, loving, and content puppy who loves her life and her family and has everything she needs to be safe and healthy as a result of Gretz.
The adorable, loving puppy has been given a second chance at life, and she is relishing every second of it.
