Susie's Hope DVD Review and Giveaway



About the movie:  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!


What I thought about Susie's Hope:   I found Susie's Hope to be a heartwarming and sometimes heart wrenching story. It's a very emotional story about neglect, love, loss, hope, forgiveness, and determination. I have to warn you though that it is a tearjerker. I have to warn you also that this movie may be a bit too graphic for some younger viewers but otherwise it's a great inspirational family movie. It's a must see for animal lovers and activists. Some parts of the movie are even told from Susie's perspective, which helps to tell her story. It has a great cast. I have never heard Susie's story before so I was really rooting for a happy ending, which did happen with Susie's Law being passed. Susie truly is a hero in my opinion. At the end of the movie, you can find out ways you can help other abused animals like Susie.
