They came from Hope, a one-year-old Shar-Pei mix who was set on fire by her owner last week. Hope is now recovering at the Blue Pearl Trauma Center where she has most likely, a lifetime of challenges to overcome. By all accounts, Hope shouldn't be alive; but thankfully she is. And many want to know when her owner will be arrested and put behind bars.
Hope's eyes have been burned so it's unclear how her vision will fare and she has burns covering up to 70%

The following video will not only touch your compassion but will also anger you. How in the world could anyone set this little, helpless dog on fire?
Animals are so loyal to us; and if they aren't there tends to be a human at fault. My dog Bolt is the most amazing, loyal and loving dog to our family. I can't get up and leave the room without Bolt following close behind. When I sit down on the sofa, he is right behind me, nestling against me and rests his head on my lap. If something happened to one of my children, I have no doubt that Bolt would be at their side, doing whatever he could to alert us, and even help them.
He is a loving, trusted member of our family. He protects us, guards us and loves us unconditionally. I look at Bolt and can't imagine him experiencing pain like Hope is going through.
And for what? Why would someone do this?
Why are people so cruel to animals?
The Bible warns us against people like this.
Please be warned, this video will touch your heart.
