Maggie, a 5-year-old dog, is a miracle dog considering the difficulties she has previously overcome in order to live. She survived being shot 17 times, finding a forever home, and becoming a registered therapy dog.
Her story of bravery and perseverance began in Lebanon. Maggie was discovered with one ear severed and her mouth fractured, tied to a box. Maggie was tortured and then shot with a shotgun 17 times while pregnant, resulting in total blindness.
Someone in Lebanon noticed the sad dog and took to social media to ask for help. After reading the request, a lady in London contacted The Wild At Heart Foundation for assistance. Maggie was rescued. She did, however, have to undergo surgeries and other treatments before being placed for adoption and eventually finding her forever family in Brighton, England.
Kasey Carlin, 25, is the owner of Maggie, a YouTube sensation with over 248,000 Instagram followers. Kasey quit her job as a dog walker to devote her full attention to Maggie’s Instagram account.
“She has taught myself and others so many lessons; we all know what she stands for because we were taught it.” But she reminds me of them on a daily basis. Don’t judge a book by its cover; love conquers all; be humble; live life to the fullest; serve others; you create your own happiness; and you can achieve anything if you believe! “Everyday she reminds me to strive to be better and achieve better,” Kasey told Bored Panda.
Maggie recently became a therapy dog and has been visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and colleges, where everyone can sense her peace and joy. At home, Maggie has won the hearts of both her owners and Kasey’s other dog, Mishka.
“I’m astounded every day by how many people are involved in her story.” For so long, no one cared about her that when I decided to foster her, it was because no one else did! “I’m thrilled she can share such an important message with the world,” Kasey says.
