Bianca is a true rags-to-riches story! This cute 1-yr-aged Schnauzer mix has by now prevail over so substantially in her younger lifetime prior to currently being rescued by the Arizona Humane Society in July. When AHS’ Crisis Animal Health care Technicians first rescued her from an overcrowded yard, she and the other dogs were being terrified.

Even though going through health care analysis, she was observed to have some minor wounds as effectively as untreated abscesses. Through her therapy, it was obvious Bianca had by no means enjoyed the benefits of becoming a pet dog as she seemingly had by no means been walked on a leash, and she was quite shy and anxious. But with the assistance of AHS’ dedicated staff and volunteers, Bianca and the rest of the other pups from this situation have slowly and gradually come out of their shells.
