A pit bull in Louisiana was denied the chance of living a good life. Instead, she was subjected to unimaginable cruelty which left her body broken and her spirit battered. The broken pit bull has been named Charlene and right now good people are working to mend her body and save her shattered spirit.
The heinous life she endured
Charlene is in the care of the St. Landry Parish Animal Control & Rescue. The animal welfare agency introduced Facebook followers to the abused dog on Saturday morning and provided a glimpse into the hellish existence she has somehow managed to survive:
The “LIFE OF A SCHOOLING DOG”
Thrown in a pit to lose. Her head beat with a pole to break the bite. Her nose hit over and over to release. Her body covered in scars. That echo PAIN.
Her eyes barely capable to focus any more from BLOW AFTER BLOW to her head. The word *RELEASE* brings her to her knees in fear. Her leg broke and the bone EXPOSED. Her ribs bruised from ‘kick after kick’.
Healing Charlene’s heart
Veterinarians will work to heal Charlene’s broken body – to help her bruises fade and her bones mend. But it will take time and patience to salvage this battered dog’s broken spirit. Prior to being rescued, the people in Charlene’s life subjected her to pain, again and again. They hurt her more than any living creature should ever be hurt. They never showed her kindness, or compassion.
The denial of anything good in her life is heartbreaking. Charlene did nothing to deserve the cruel treatment she received – she is a dog like any other. A dog who was born to love people – a dog who wanted nothing more in her life than to be someone’s friend.

Charlene can not focus on me….Due to past pain…due to A HUMAN. Hitting her time and time again to *Release* Yet pitching her in a pit to FIGHT. To school. OVER & OVER
