Rambo the pit bull was found lifeless in the woods in Rock Hill, South Carolina by real estate agent Casey Lawrence, who stumbled upon him by accident after she got lost showing a property. Judging from his wounds, he was a ‘bait dog’ used for dog fighting.

The poor pit had his back legs amputated. He’s currently recovering from the first operation and several are awaiting. However, Rambo already wags his tail and enjoys all the toys and cuddles that he gets at the clinic and from his foster parents – he’s never experienced so much love before!

Being a submissive dog who is too gentle to fight, he used to be tied down so other dogs could practice fighting on him. Now he can finally be a dog he is supposed to be. For the moment, Rambo has his own wheelchair but the vets are working hard to make him able to run freely without it.
