My story starts at the Bad Newz Kennels. I was chained up and isolated living in fear and loneliness. My future was dim until the FBI raid that freed me from one prison however it sent me to another. I lived in a crowded shelter with cages stacked on top of each other. This prison lasted until the end of the trial. Fortunately for me and my fellow rescues the ASPCA, Best Friends Animal Society, and BAD RAP fought to keep us alive. I travelled with 12 of my fellow dogs to California with BAD RAP to start my rehabilitation program in hopes of finding my forever home one day. I did so well in the beginning that I was sent to a foster home to further my rehabilitation. My foster family fell in love with me and adopted me. After a long and scary journey I had finally found my forever home. I am Audie and I am a Michael Vick dog.
