Joey the Pit Bull

Dr. Loudon was recognized in 2012 by local and national news for her role in saving the life of an abused pit bull puppy named Joey. Authorities determined that Joey was used as a bait dog for dog fights. When he became injured, Joey’s owners shoved him into a garbage bag. They then disposed of him by throwing the bag out of a moving car onto the shoulder of a Long Island highway. A witness to this heinous act rescued Joey and brought him to Dr. Loudon’s clinic. Over the  next few months, Dr. Loudon treated the pit bull pup’s life-threatening injuries and paralysis. Joey’s progress was so miraculous, his story was featured on News 12 Long Island, CBS, and NBC. Dr. Loudon and Joey were also guests on Fox and Friends. Eventually, Dr. Loudon adopted Joey and he has been her loyal and beloved pet ever since. Watch Joey’s progress in this visual documentary.
