Bulldog Rescued From Basement

admin | July 1st, 2019

In Cincinnati, Ohio, neighbors thought a home in their neighborhood was abandoned and vacant. But they kept hearing barking coming from inside for weeks on end. Two people living nearby heard the barks and cries for help and decided to go inside to see what was happening in the old house. They were able to get in touch with the owner of the property who let them go inside the dilapidated home if they promised to fill the water dish of the dog he was keeping in the basement. Once they got inside, they couldn’t believe how terrible the conditions were in the home. They saw who was making the noise, too: a two year old bulldog named Gracie. The poor pup was so excited to see people and had clearly been starved for affection and attention. She ran to them, tail wagging and gave them kisses.

They knew they needed to help Gracie, so they shared her story and photos on Facebook in the hope someone would help her. They said, “Her feet are caked in feces and her voice is hoarse from barking,” the rescuers wrote in a Facebook post. “She is absolutely desperate for attention and food (he feeds her by dumping a bag of food every few days) … but she is so sweet. Please … can any dog rescues take her?”

The local rescue group Queen City Bulldog Rescue (QCBR) saw the post and stepped in to help. The group went to the house to free the dog, and found out her backstory. Gracie had been used for breeding and her owner no longer wanted her because she couldn’t have puppies anymore. The owner agreed to let her go for $200. As soon as they brought her outside, she began rolling in the grass because she was so happy to be out of the old rotting house and finally in safety with her rescuers. She is now in a foster home and her foster family plans to adopt her!
