Heartbreaking and a Happy Ending for Susie
5 August 2014 | by (Richmond, VA) – See all my reviews

This movie was heartbreaking, but inspirational. It is my hope it will bring awareness and stricter laws in all states. I am so thankful Susie survived this horrendous abuse, is loved, and a spokes dog for animal cruelty. Although Donna was severely injured by a pit bull, she knew the dog didn't do it out of meaness, but because of irresponsible and ignorant owners. You don't just tie a dog up and expect him to be social and behave around adults and children, or other animals. Donna has a loving heart, and she and Susie are an inspiration to everyone in working towards an end to the cycle of animal abuse.

Thank you for all the love and dedication that went into making this movie a reality.
