These are the faces of abuse and neglect.
Gorda and Hatchi lived in a back yard and were not let into the house. Gorda learned to jump fences so she was tethered. She 'lived' on a cement slab with no shelter. Hatchi had it mildly better: he got to roam free in the yard and had access to a lean-to type dog house. When found by animal control, both dogs' bowls were low with dirty water. Their owner only wanted them as breeding machines and admitted to taking his anger out on Gorda.
After all they have been through, they do not hold it against people. Although scared in the shelter, they are friendly dogs. Gorda and Hatchi do not need to be fostered together (although that would be great).
