RAMSEY, N.J. — They call her Faith — and she must’ve had plenty of it.
Ramsey’s Southern Paws Rescue saved a two-week-old puppy that was found among six others by New York City police in a fighting ring on Wednesday, rescue owner Ashley Gardenier said.
Each police officer that responded took in a puppy, but with their busy schedules couldn't care for them longer than that day, the rescuer said.
Upon hearing this through a mutual friend who knows one of the officers, Gardenier made a bee-line for New York City to retrieve baby Faith, she said. And then, straight to Allendale Veterinary Hospital.
"This little girl will never know fighting, pain or suffering like her mom did all thanks to a few caring people," the Facebook post says.
Vets examined Faith and determined that she is 2 weeks old, very healthy and happy, Gardenier said. In another two months, she will need a forever family.
