Badly Injured Pit Bull Overcomes Trauma and Morphs into THIS with Love and TLC

Rocky Kanaka, the founder of The Dog Bakery, is a well-known dog lover on a mission to make every dog’s day out special. In his online series, “Dog’s Day Out,” he showcases overlooked shelter dogs, with the aim of raising awareness about their plight and finding them their forever homes.

Meet Maple

In a recent episode, Rocky featured Maple, a pit bull who suffered from severe lacerations and puncture wounds when she was found as a puppy under an overpass in Tehachapi, California. Thanks to the intervention of Marley’s Mutts rescue organization, Maple received the necessary medical treatment to recover. However, due to the stigma attached to pit bulls and her injuries, Maple faced a difficult future.
