Susie's Hope is based on the true story of Donna Lawrence and Susie and how together they find love, hope, healing and forgiveness. Months before finding Susie left for dead in a local park, Donna herself was almost fatally wounded when attacked by a pit bull. 

Meet Susie, the pit bull-mix who was found as a puppy beaten, burned, and left for dead. Her jaw was broken, she was missing teeth, and her ears were burned off. She is the reason for Susie's Law, in North Carolina, which authorizes convicted animal abusers to receive as much as 10 months in jail for their crimes. 

Watch the trailer:

I have seen firsthand how well-behaved, gentle, and loving these breeds can be when raised with love and affection. Most often, it is when they are bred to be aggressive and raised with neglect and abuse that they have the potential to live up to their viscious reputations. This abuse is what led to Donna's horrific attack.

Their journey of recovery is an inspirational one and reminds me how much of a difference just one person can make. Susie's Hope brings much needed awareness to animal abuse and its long lasting effects. 

Thanks to Donna, and the help of many others, Susie leads a full life and is now a trained therapy dog and also works with other burn victims. What began as tragedy turned into triumph!

The well-chosen cast includes actors such as Emmanuelle Vaugier (best known for playing "Mia" on Two and a Half Men), Burgess Jenkins (from Remember the Titans, Jon Provost ("Timmy" from Lassie) and several other notable actors and actresses.
The film has a Dove rating of 12+ due to some graphic scenes that may frighten young children. Overall, I thought this was a very good movie!
