The Daily Mail has posted a story about the incredible journey of Donna Lawrence—who suffered terrible injuries from a dog attack—and a Pit Bull named Susie, who helped Lawrence overcome her fear of dogs:

Understandably, Mrs Lawrence, who had been a big dog lover, was left scared and suffering nightmares from the attack until she and husband Roy decided to adopt Susie a year later.

The pooch has since become a trained therapy dog who works with burn victims.
Mrs Lawrence used her plight to highlight animal abuse in North Carolina and in 2010, former Governor Bev Perdue signed Susie’s Law to bring in tougher penalties on animal cruelty.

Their story was turned into a movie called “Susie’s Hope,” which is available on Amazon Prime or can be ordered from the Susie’s Hope website. You can see the trailer below.
