Happy Tails: A “Little” Light

Have you ever heard someone describe a major change as “the difference between night and day”? For most people, it’s just an expression, but for a two-year-old pit bull named Little, it was reality. You see, last summer, Little and another dog, Big, were found chained up in a dark basement with no access to food or water. Thankfully, the dogs were rescued by the NYPD just in time.

When Little was discovered, she was emaciated, her coat was covered in urine and feces and she couldn’t walk. Over the next several months, staff at the ASPCA Animal Hospital helped nurse Little back to health.

Julia met Little on her first ever visit to the ASPCA Adoption Center, and she knew instantly that they were meant to be. On December 13, Julia adopted Little and changed her name to Weela.

Over the next few months, Weela’s life changed in ways we are sure that she never could have imagined: gone was the fear, darkness and sorrow. Weela loves to play games. “She makes me feel like a kid,” she says. “I love her dearly and I can’t think of living without her.”

Julia tells us that her primary goal with Weela is “to love her as much as I can,” adding, “I feel like Weela is returning my favor.”

After years in the darkness, we are so happy that this special dog is finally getting the chance to live a sunny life. Congratulations, Weela!
