Kelly Benzel came across a cute pit bull’s picture on Facebook and had her heart immediately stolen away. She had to adopt the dog; Rocco looked perfectly healthy, though she could tell he was to some degree uncared for. She was sure however that she could provide him with the love he deserved.

Kelly picked Rocco up at his old owner’s house as he had been living with them up until that point. When she showed up however, she realized Rocco had several wounds on his body; inspecting the wound more, Kelly found out it had been infected.

Rocco was taken to a vet who checked his wounds. Thankfully, it didn’t take the pit bull long to recover- all thanks to Kelly’s love and the vet’s care.

Kelly didn’t have it easy to forget what had happened to Rocco before however. Realizing that her dog had been mistreated before, she knew she had to stand up for Rocco. So instead of moving on and forgetting about what happened, she notified USA Today. Rocco’s previous owner was given jail time for having shown abusive behavior toward the dog.
