The road of life has been especially tough for this sweet dog. Thanks to calls by concerned citizens, however, she is finally making a turn down the right path. The rescue team with the Southern Cross Animal Rescue (SCAR) used patience, determination, and food to make it a successful rescue.

The pretty Pittie, named Selina, was spotted along the interstate so the rescue team made special care to lure her down into the safety of the woods below. Selina was so nervous she had to be chased for two exits before tiring out. When she did, however, it was clear how rough her life has been.


She has puncture wounds all over her, a limp, and it appears that she has had several litters of puppies.

Regardless of her hard life, this girl wants nothing but love. She is sweet, gentle, and a complete cuddle muffin.

SCAR reports that she is doing great in foster care with the other dogs and even kitties. We are so happy this beautiful girl is on the road to recovery and getting all the care and attention she needs.


SCAR is a non-profit rescue that targets the homeless pet crisis through education, community outreach, foster networks, and transport programs. The no-kill organization focus’ on the most desperate victims’ including animals who are starving on the streets, sick, injured, and animals on death row in kill shelters.
