This is Amanda Forth and her dog, Tusk. This story has two parts – the first part is about the life Tusk had before meeting Amanda. But, before we start, you should know that Amanda wasn’t really looking to get a dog – it just happened!
You have heard those stories before, something inside you just feels right, and BOOM, you have a pet! Those are the best stories! Ok, so several years ago, before Tusk met Amanda, life for the little dog was rough.
She was found tied to a fence post in Los Angeles. Tusk was so hungry that she resorted to eating rocks. She lost all her teeth because of it. To this day, she has only one tooth, and her tongue always hangs out of her mouth.
Volunteers from the Much Love Animal Rescue took Tusk in and nursed her back to health. Tusk had a severe uterus infection and had surgery. Once she had recovered, she was put up for adoption.
