Animal cruelty is no laughing matter! The sad truth is that we live in a world where some people choose to treat their pets like dirt rather than members of the family. Some folks even start out liking their pets. Then, out of the blue, they'll flip a switch, decide they're fed up with them, and start treating them horribly, or they'll abandon them on the side of the street. But if anyone knows what neglect and abuse feel like, it would be a beautiful pitbull named Abigail, who endured some of the worst kind of animal cruelty. But she eventually overcame her trauma and found her way to a brand-new life. Now she's the ultimate fashion icon.
Instead of loving, and caring for these animals the way they care for us, certain owners will take out their frustration on their pets. Just ask this adorable pitbull with sadness in her heart.
Initially, she had suffered a great deal as a result of neglect. Vets even suspected that she had been used in illegal dog fighting rings. In the process, she ended up with a number of injuries, some of which were life-threatening.
She had lost an ear and suffered other head injuries, which is why she started wearing on elaborate hats and other forms of trendy head gear.
Who knows if she'd even be alive if she hadn't been picked up after wandering the streets of Miami. But when she arrived at the Pets First Well Center, she was in really bad shape.
Now, she's leading a completely different life as an online fashion guru, but things could have been so much different for her had she not been rescued in time.
She feared Abigail would be euthanized, so she took her from the Pets First Well Center, and cared for the pitbull. Then she took her home where she quickly became the new woman in her husband's life, Brock Frazier.
She realized that Abigail's head dressing would always resemble a bonnet. Eventually, the bonnets became headbands and soon enough, a fashion star was born.
Even the American Humane Society caught wind of this incredible four-legged pooch, and decided to honor her at the 2017 Hero Dog Awards on September 16, 2017.
That's where you'll see Abigail rubbing elbows with her fellow pooches and celebs like Daisy Fuentes, Vivica Fox, and Danica McKellar.
But as her injuries have healed, and she's gotten noticed quite a bit on social media thanks to Victoria, who started uploading Abigail's photos on Facebook and other outlets.
In a situation where most dogs wouldn't have survived, Abigail beat the odds, overcame great hardship, and proved that perseverance, with a little love from her human friends, ultimately conquered all.
