Mazumah was found with an automobile fan belt tied around her neck. She was digging through a trash can behind a store looking for food when a worked came out flailing at her with a broom. A rescuer stepped up to stop the abuse and brought her to us. It's easy to see that this was not the first encounter Mazumah has had with a broom. Even when we reach to pet her she ducks as if she is expecting a blow. She always cowers. Never defends herself. Her rescuer explained that on the ride to PETS, Inc. Mazumah would duck when she drove under a bridge. Apparently the shadows frightened her. This dog will need gentle people to help her find the joy in being part of a family.
Mazuma is about 2 years old ... mostly Chocolate Lab but not very big.
