A dog named Harper is given a new lease on life after being rescued by kind-hearted individuals.


Natalie Oliveri, president of Furever Bully Love Rescue, found the abused and abandoned dog in Redland, Florida, a place known for being a dumping ground for unwanted dogs.

Haper had been living on The Redlands for a few months, sharing the barren place with other unwanted dogs, as reported by We Love Animals.

Another rescue organization, Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dog Project, goes to the area every day to feed the stray dogs.

About 100 dogs roam in the area, and are fed 350 pounds of food every day.


Aside from the 100 dogs that they feed every day, there are more - reaching to thousands - that are roaming in the vast area of The Redlands.

Members of Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dog Project were handing out food one day when Harper approached them together with five other dogs.

But Harper got terrified as she got close to the group. She dropped to the ground.

When she looked closely, Natalie saw the extent of the abuse Harper has suffered. There were scars all over her body.


Without hesitation, Natalie took Harper to the vet to have her treated. The poor canine had worms, a tooth infection and anemia.

And there are more wounds that cannot be seen by the eye. Harper suffers from psychological wounds that would take time to heal.

But Natalie was determined to help Harper recover from her brutal past.

At the shelter, Harper didn't move much for three days. She stayed in a corner, fearful of human interaction.

A woman named Cheryl Kessler stepped in to help in Harper's recovery. She provided Harper a home. She said the dog is slowly gaining back her trust in humans. She is now much happier.
