Susie’s Hope DVD Review

 Susie's Hope
Based on the true story that successfully passed Susie’s Law in North Carolina, which seeks stricter punishment for animal abusers, Susie’s Hope brings to life the inspirational relationship between pit bull attack survivor Donna Lawrence and Susie, a pit bull-mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead. Recognizing reflect and abuse were to blame for the tragic attack that nearly claimed her life 10 months earlier, Donna resumes the battered animal and accepts her as family. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as they lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection, not only for Susie, but all animals. Starring Emmanuelle Vaguer (40 Days and 40 Nights), Burgess Jenkins (Remember The Titans) and Andrea Powell (Ender’s Game, The Twighlight: Breaking Dawn Saga: Part 2), Susie’s Hope is an incredible story of love, loss and redemption.

About Susie:

Susie was found nearly dead in Greenfield Park in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 20, 2009. Just a puppy, Susie had licked the face of her owner’s newborn baby. Her owner became violent—she was beaten so severely her jaw was broken. That wasn’t enough, though. She was then set on fire and left for dead. Incredibly and against all odds Susie survived. Donna Lawrence adopted her two months later. Susie is now a trained therapy dog and event won the American Humane Association’s American Hero Dog this year!

My Thoughts:

I love animals and I always get emotional when animals are injured for no reason so I was very interested in this movie. Get ready and grab a tissue and get ready for a beautiful story of hope, healing, and unconditional love. Donna’s uses her terrible ordeal and finds a purpose in the events that changed the course of her life. She feels that God saved her life for this mission of saving Susie and to help tighten the laws to bring justice to animals that can’t speak for themselves.

Donna’s healing takes place when she faces her fears by caring for a severally injured and burned pit bull puppy while she was still healing from her attacked that left her with permanent injures and the loss of her unborn child. 

Donna was attacked by a neighbor’s pit bull dog that she was trying to feed that was left abandoned. The dog was tied up to a chain in the back yard with no food and water. Donna almost died from the attack and faced some tough challenges as a result of the attack.

There are a few graphic images after the dog attack and of a puppy that was left for dead in some disturbing images. Other than that this movie will put you on a roller-coaster ride for both Donna and Susie seeing them both face life threatening issues. Grab a tissue because I cried a few times due to the terrible events and for joy at the end of the story.

I am not going to give away any spoilers so you will have to watch it for yourself.

I would recommend this movie for 10 and up due to the fact that it could scare some kids with the dog attack. Just so you know they show the first part of the dog grabbing her leg and blood from the attack, and Donna barely dragging herself down the street looking for help. Honestly it’s not terrible but it could be for some kids.

A wonderful inspiring movie that will leave you satisfied with the results of Donna’s mission of bringing awareness of animal cruelty and for making stiffer laws to those who abuse animals. Truly an amazing movie! Visit Susie's Hope website to find out more.
