After almost getting butchered for her meat, former stray dog Teresa was sent from Thailand to a loving owner in New Jersey in January.
The two-year-old mixed breed pup became disfigured after a man used a machete to try and kill her for food. Fortunately for Teresa, he wasn’t much of a swordsman, and she survived — but just barely.
The horrible incident left Teresa without a nose and missing most of her top jaw as well.
However, one woman in New Jersey still found the poor dog beautiful and opened her heart and home to Teresa two months ago.
Karen Quigley, the special-ed teacher who rescued Teresa, told 6ABC News, “Unfortunately, in Thailand people do eat dog meat, and a person had a machete and he was trying to cut her head off.”
Teresa still needs a lot of medical care to get her in the best shape she can be in after her incident. So Quigley and her friend, Michelle Weirich, started a GoFundMe campaign that has already raised over USD11,000.
