Dog cowered and quivered as rescuer urged her off of frigid porch

Near the Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania area, the Speranza Animal Rescue was called Wednesday afternoon referencing a dog that had been abandoned and left tied to the frigid porch of a house with a bag of dog food. Temperatures in the area were reported to be 21 degrees;  much too cold for a dog left with no cover or protection.

A heartbreaking announcement posted on the organization’s Facebook page stated:

“This girl cowered when I approached. Her tail tucked so tight, and her body quivering – mostly from the cold. But also, out of fear.”

The dog, now dubbed Eloise, is a young pit bull. Her ears have injuries with “chunks taken out” and blood on her head. She also has numerous scars all over her body.

“As soon as I untied her, she drug me straight to the car. And, jumped in and curled up on the seat. I’m not sure what your story is, but here’s to a new beginning. Welcome to the family Eloise,” Janine Guido, founder of the rescue posted.

Updates to follow. For now, let’s help Eloise. Click here to donate.

    Thankfully she was rescued prior to Freezing to Death, and by Someone who cared and NOT to use her for a bait dog, in a Scum Bag Fighting Ring… I hope she finds a good home….. She deserves it!!!
