On October 2013, Sandy Hagan of Pennsylvania was just scrolling through her Facebook feed when she stopped to look more closely at a picture of Mallory, a Pit Bull mix who had been rescued by New Jersey-based Rescue Dogs Rock. “There was just something about her whole face that caught my eye. It was love at first sight,” she said.

Hagan explained that she wasn’t specifically looking for a dog because at that time she had only recently lost her beloved Justice, who had passed away from renal failure. But there was something about Mallory that made her stop and look more closely. She said, “I love white dogs, and both Justice and Mallory had similar features: white dogs with black spots and a black spot around the eyes.”

When Hagan looked at more pictures, she learned that Mallory was suffering from a hind-leg injury that was most likely caused by abuse. After reading through status updates and comments, Hagan quickly discovered that Mallory was facing imminent amputation surgery because of the mangled leg.
