A Labrador left for dead in South Korea after suffering horrific injuries at the hands of a dog slaughterhouse is making a miraculous recovery — and smiling the whole time.
Chi Chi was force fed and hung upside down for days to make her meat more tender, leaving her mutilated and in agony.
Monique Hanson, of Animal Rescue, Media and Education (ARME), said, “She was hung from her legs for so long that her bindings started eating through her flesh.”
“At some point, it was literally bone she was hanging upside down from.”
Seeing her injuries, the slaughterhouse dumped Chi Chi in a trash can as she was unfit for consumption. Luckily, ARME discovered the pup just in time and took her in.
“It was literally just by chance we found her,” said Monique, “She was found in a very well-known region in South Korea. It was really by luck.”
