Blind Beagle Rescued From Lab has Big Secret

A dog named Maria had a very difficult life. She was rescued from a laboratory in China and after ten years of living in a cage, her life was finally saved. Maria had not only lived her entire life in a laboratory cage, but she was subjected to terrible experiments and repeatedly bred to produce more dogs for the laboratory. Maria was used in studies around glaucoma and those experiments left Maria not only traumatized, but blind as well.

Maria was released from the laboratory after personnel decided they no longer had any use for her. Rescuers in China took in Maria and seventeen other dogs, all of whom were clearly traumatized from their experience in the laboratory. Finding homes for the dogs in China would be difficult, as most people in China don’t want a dog, and those who do are not interested in rescues. So, Rescue + Freedom Project stepped in to help. However, before transporting Maria to the US they found out that she was pregnant and couldn’t travel until she gave birth.

Maria had seven puppies in a Chinese foster home, but sadly one of the pups passed away. The six others were very healthy and Maria is a wonderful mother to them despite all she has gone through. To of the puppies found homes in China and the other four, named Lily, Bessie, Oliver, and Klyde, traveled to Los Angeles with their mom to find homes. Three of the puppies found homes and the rescue is working on finding the last puppy and Maria a good home now. Maria is looking for a quiet, laid back home where she can relax and enjoy her freedom. After all she has gone through in her ten years of life, Maria just needs a place where she can lay in the sun and take lots of naps—and never live in a cage ever again.
