Susie's Hope DVD Movie Review & GIVEAWAY
Here is a bit about the movie: Based on the true story that successfully passed Susie’s Law in North Carolina, which seeks stricter punishment for animal abusers, Susie’s Hope brings to life the inspirational relationship between pit bull attack survivor Donna Lawrence and Susie, a pit bull-mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead. Recognizing reflect and abuse were to blame for the tragic attack that nearly claimed her life 10 months earlier, Donna resumes the battered animal and accepts her as family. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as they lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection, not only for Susie, but all animals.
Here is a bit about Susie's story and her heroism: Susie was found nearly dead in Greenfield Park in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 20, 2009. Just a puppy, Susie had licked the face of her owner’s newborn baby. Her owner became violent—she was beaten so severely her jaw was broken. That wasn’t enough, though. She was then set on fire and left for dead. Incredibly and against all odds Susie survived. Donna Lawrence adopted her two months later. Susie is now a trained therapy dog and even the American Humane Association’s American Hero Dog this year!
Please, take three minutes and watch this video that tells about how Susie has impacted the lives of many and how her story changed the laws for animal abusers.
Now, let's talk about the movie. It was a great family movie, with good acting and an engaging story line. The actors were believable, which can be a hard thing to accomplish. I really felt like they were telling and living their own stories. I came away from watching this movie with a little more compassion for dogs, especially at-risk dogs like pit bulls. Take a peek at this trailer and you will want to watch it for sure.
