A tiny puppy who had its tail chopped off with scissors finally found the loving forever home she deserves.
Smouse was living at the De Doorns township in South Africa. Thankfully, she wasn’t living there long before Sidewalk Specials stepped in and rescued her from the abusive home.
Before she was rescued, her owner used scissors to cut her tail off (a horrible practice called “docking”) which left her in pain and agony.
Ultimately, the tail wound ended up getting infected and little Smouse needed a savior and quick.
Her savior came in the form of Sidewalk Specials. The rescue organization stepped in and confiscated her from her abusive owner and got to work on healing her, both physically and mentally.

Though Smouse’s story had a rough start, she’s now thriving in life! The little dog has overcome so much trauma and hardship, and she’s even found the loving forever home she so deserves.
