Take a beat, take a breath, and listen in!

Hi. My name is Gracie. Well, that’s my new name since he came and saved me from that awful place where they were killing me every day. I’m sure I would have died there if he had not come. Who is he? His name is Michael. He is my angel. I’m an English Bulldog and this is my story.

For eighteen months I had the same life every day. I woke up and went out a little door to some rocky ground where I would “do my business” as Michael calls it, and then wait for someone to bring me some food. I would only see them pass by as they dropped off my portion in my dish. I don’t know their name because they didn’t talk to me. It was usually a man in a yellow coat...

A couple of times he took me out of my home into a dark building where he would tie me up and another dog would come in with me. I didn’t like that at all. I was so scared! When the man in the yellow coat was done with me, he would put me back in my home and then come check me every week.
