Sometime last year, someone abandoned a beautiful black lab. Now, despite cruelty, a veteran has a loving new companion.
Heartworm-positive and with scars from a too-tight collar around her neck, the dog ended up at the Barnesville animal shelter. Seeing potential, Sandra Bray of Barnesville Pound Pups rescued her and named her Brooke.
