Watching Libby the Greyhound play in her backyard, it seems like she has not a care in the world. These days, her life is that of a queen compared to the one she had at the Macau Canidrom Stadium in China.
According to The Guardian, “The Macau Canidrome has been the subject of a long dispute between government officials in the Chinese territory and animal rights activists. The track was known for its cruel conditions and high death rates. Rescue groups say dogs are kept in poor conditions in a concrete compound, often in scorching temperatures while suffering skin conditions and untreated injuries.”
Three Greyhounds, including Libby, were rescued when the Macau Canidrome was forcibly closed. Thanks to Saz and Rick Back from Somerset in the United Kingdom, Libby now lives like a princess.
Her mom told the BBC, “She didn’t know anything when she came here, she’s learned a lot very quickly. She is full of life.”
When she first came to the family, she would freeze. Once she realized everything was now okay, she left her harsh life behind and is happy to find a loving home.
Watch Libby in action in the video below. Have a happy life, sweetie!
