Cupcake was taken in by the owner of a local factory when she was about 3 months old. However, the factory owner and a few of his employees were very unkind to Cupcake. They tied her to a short leash, thus Cupcake had to do her business right by where she would eat and sleep. The owner and his employee were very upset that Cupcake’s area was filthy (due to their own doing), and would kick and beat her whenever they saw her peeing or pooping. Cupcake did not understand what she’s done. Because they did not want Cupcake to defecate, they withheld any food or water! After several days of this inhumane treatment, a few kind employees of the factory secretly gave her some food and water. One of them sought help on Instagram, and found a Life of Hope volunteer for help, and desperately asked the volunteer to take Cupcake away from the misery. When we saw Cupcake and saw the resemblance with the recent litter we saved, we agreed immediately to take in Cupcake.  

Cupcake was super happy the first day coming to her foster home. She ran around and played with her foster brothers and sisters. Although she received daily beatings, her good nature, easy-going attitude was never lost! She still loves and trusts people, and is quite outgoing.  

It is very likely that the memory of the chained life, she is not a fan of being leashed or being crated in an isolated area. She would bark to voice her fear and anxiety. Even though she gets used to a new environment easily, that memory does seem to stay with her.  

Cupcake is ready for her new home, and if you are interested in her, please let us know! We would be more than happy to share any details of Cupcake.
