One Woman Never Imagined Her Rescue Dog Would Rescue Her From A Life Of Domestic Abuse

Amanda adopted Kyro when he was a very young puppy after he was abandoned by his mother. She bottle fed him and nurtured him until he healed physically and emotionally. Then he helped Amanda to do the same.

Amanda was in an abusive relationship. Her boyfriend would beat her regularly. She withdrew from her friends and family. Kyro was her only solace. To escape her violent home life, Amanda would take Kyro out for long walks. When she cried, he was her support system.

Like most people in an abusive relationship, Amanda had very little self-esteem and believed that she deserved all of the punches and kicks. That changed when her boyfriend punched her beloved dog in the face. The pup almost lost his eyesight.

She refused to let Kyro suffer any abuse. She told a local news station that she doesn’t know where she would be without her dog. She likely wouldn’t have had the strength to leave her boyfriend.

Amanda is now a professional photographer and takes plenty of photographs of her life with Kyro on her Instagram account, @GoldilocksandtheWolf.
