When rescuers found the dog we are telling you about today; they weren’t sure she was going to make it. Located underneath an overpass in Tehachapi, California — poor Maple was in bad shape.

OH NO

You see, the rescuers think that some very evil people used Maple, a young Pitbull, as a bait dog. So, when they found her, the poor dog had multiple puncture wounds as well as several severe lacerations.

Other dogs had obviously mauled maple.

At first, the staff at Kern County Animal Services took excellent care of Maple.

However, it was when the founder of Marley’s Mutts, Zach Skow, stepped in that things really started to turn around for the sweet girl.

You will see in the video, which we posted at the bottom of this article, that when Zach first entered Maple’s crate, she couldn’t stop crying.

INJURIES

The Pitbull’s injuries were so severe, she would cry constantly, and she could barely move around without experiencing severe pain.

However, with love and support from her foster mom Randi as well as all the doctors and nurses, Maple started to get better slowly.

Now, the next challenge for Maple would be to find her a forever home.

And we all know by now that when it comes to Pitbulls, especially ones with an abusive background, finding someone to take them can be a challenge.

ROCKY KANAKA

Well, about that time, Rocky Kanaka stepped in.

We have talked about Rocky before.

He’s known for helping dogs get adopted by making them famous on the internet.

Well, Rocky and Randi got together and came up with a perfect plan.

BUTTERFLY KISSES

You see, Maple’s nurses noticed that as soon as they got her wounds wrapped up, the sweet dog would come out of her shell.

So, Rocky and Randi figured that there’s no better way for Maple to spend her special day out than dressed up and getting tons of attention.

But Maple’s super-fun special day wasn’t done yet.

SHOW ME THE LOVE

So, Maple got a ton of love with her butterfly kisses stand.

However, since this was her special day, she still had many treats in store.

Maple got a special doggy massage!

And she even had her very own professional photo shoot with Christian Shenouda.

Remember, though, while everyone certainly wanted Maple to have a special day — finding her a forever home was always the goal.

Would the butterfly kisses work?

HOME

We are happy to report that, yes, Maple’s butterfly kisses helped her locate the perfect forever home.

A wonderful woman named Justine adopted Maple.
