This is Link.
His life started rough. Without a home, Link was hit and dragged by a car. He ended up in a ditch, where he laid for dead for an unknown length of time with a terribly injured rear leg. He was severely underweight and dehydrated when found. Fortunately, some incredible veterinarians were able to save his life and repair his leg. It also became known that Link was born deaf. His caring nature was quickly discovered when he entered a foster home, where he helped raise puppies and befriended a pit bull previously involved in dog fighting. Link found his permanent home when my friends adopted him. They have continued to encourage Link's positive influence; he just completed his requirements to become a certified therapy dog.
