Donna Lawrence could not believe it when her neighbors moved away and left their pit bull behind.  Although they had neglected the pet for as long as they had her, it was almost unfathomable that they would move away and not make arrangements for the animal.  Moved by compassion, Donna began bringing the dog food and water.

Unfortunately, one day something spooked the dog and it ravaged Donna.  she was lucky to live through the attack and she required hospitalization and rehab.  Given these circumstances it could only be providential that she was the person to rescue Susie.

Susie is a pitbull who was so badly abused that upon first glance she appeared dead.  She had been severely beaten and then set on fire.  I don't believe it was a coincidence that Donna is the one who found her as she was near death and brought her in for extensive and costly veterinary care.  The first thing I thought of when I learned their story was this verse:
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

This movie tells the story of how these two helped to heal each other, and it also shows the amazing love and support of the community who rallied behind Susie.  Their efforts helped bring about North Carolina's "Susie's Law" that protects animals form the type of inhumane abuse that Susie suffered.

It is heartbreaking, heartwarming, and inspirational.  It is also has the Dove seal of approval for people over 12 years old.

It is also a pleasure to share the news that Susie has made quite a name for herself.  She is the American Human Association's 2014 Hero Dog.
