OMG. I started crying as soon as I saw the picture of Xena. How can someone be so cruel to any animal. Eventually what goes around comes around. Wouldn't want to be you. God Bless the people who saved Xena and her new loving family. I'm so happy for Xena, she is a beautiful dog.
When I first saw the pictures of Xena lying on the table I thought she had passed; I got sick to my stomach. I didn't want to look but I did and have cried ever since. I can't imagine the suffering this poor little hairless furball endured by the hands of a so called human being. How did this go on for so long sight unseen; my thanks to the person who finally picked her up and to Chrissy for loving her so and because of her love gave her up to a family who truly needed her. I don't know of one place that would have given her that one chance to go on. God works in mysterious ways for his creatures; there was a place already prepared for Xena. Most would not have given her that chance and put her to rest. Thank you all for your time, your love and compassion you showed this precious little puppy. Jonny Hickey surely is a lucky young boy to have been given such a special gift from above; may their lives together be long and happy with tons of love they will give each other. Roseanne
Good Lord have mercy! Xena sure is an awesome survivor! So happy Xena has a wonderful forever home now and is getting all the love and FOOD for a lifetime! Kudos to the rescuers and new family! God Bless and keep safe! Barbara
Bless Friends of DeKalb Animals for saving Xena from death's door. Most would not have tried, but you believed. Happy she has a loving home with Jonny now.
I hope the person responsible for starving her gets a lifetime of misery.
God bless all who helped this poor puppy! Thank you! What a miracle that the dog is now helping this great boy. I am glad this story made the news!
God Bless Chrissy for Xena's recovery. I cried to think how this beautiful pup suffered . I wish every animal had such a happy ending. Thank you for sharing this story.
Amazing,great what a little love can do,I am 67 years old and this story had me crying like a baby,God bless them both and many happy years together.
I cried when reading the story, and while watching...Xena is an amazing girl!! I am thrilled that Jonny and Xena found each other, she is so good for him, and the whole family loves her!
I was horrified when I saw the first pictures of Xena. What a remarkable recovery! God is good. I pray that He will give Xena and her young master many, many years together.
This is truly one of the most incredible videos/stories I have ever seen. I cried through the entire article and the video. God Bless everyone that helped this beautiful animal and this little boy. You are angels.... I it so disturbing to think there are people out there that can be this cruel.
I cried thru the whole thing. Totally awesome story. There is a special place in Heaven for ANIMAL ANGELS, there is also a special place 'somewhere else' for animal abusers. And BOTH are very well DESERVED. !!
How could anyone do this to such a gorgeous puppy? Where can her story be found?
The progress Xena has made is truly amazing. The part where she was trying to walk literally brought me to tears. Her eyes have gone from such a dead look to a happy healthy and BEAUTIFUL girl. I so want to adopt her, and I am eagerly waiting for the time when she is available.
Will her hair grow back?? She has made amazing strides since she started receiving care!!!
What an amazing girl and an amazing foster Mommy!
You are a survivor Xena and a Sweetheart
