Left in a Minnesota alleyway with nothing but a thin wire crate to protect her from the elements, Rosabella wouldn’t have survived much longer.

Thankfully, a rescue volunteer spotted the pup and rushed her to a safe, warm place.

It’s been nearly a year since that harrowing day, and Rosabella’s life has completely changed — for the better.
