The bond between a human and a dog can be indescribable, and every once in a while, if we are lucky, a dog comes along that changes our lives. That was the case for Lennon, a dog who was found discarded and broken in an Arkansas ditch in 2010. He was a casualty of a dog fighting ring, with battle scars including heart-worm, a bum back leg, a bullet embedded in his thigh, and countless puncture wounds and razor slices on his body.
Despite his traumatic past, Lennon was a forgiving and charming dog, and he found his way into the heart of his human companion. They named him Lennon, after the famous song that promotes peace, and he transformed from a bony skeleton into a glorious muscular American Bulldog.
While his scars are still visible in the sunlight, his shiny and healthy black splotches and white fur serve as a testament to his remarkable transformation. Lennon’s story is a reminder of the resilience and strength of animals, and the power of human kindness to make a difference in their lives.
Although Lennon’s human companion knows they have many years ahead of them, they also know that Lennon will be the one dog that will break their heart when he’s gone. They will keep his nose prints on the window and his collar and tags on the hook as a reminder of the special bond they shared. Lennon’s story is a testament to the fact that even the most broken and discarded animals can find love, hope, and a second chance at life.
