It’s hard to imagine withstanding the pain of a grotesquely mangled and swollen nose and mouth. It’s harder still to imagine being able to stay “in a great mood” or “very affectionate” while you were enduring it.

But that’s exactly how shelter workers at Dallas [Texas] Animal Services described Francesca Bubbles, a young blue pit bull or pit bull mix who animal control officers found wandering the streets Thursday.

“Despite these injuries,” said shelter director Jody Jones, “Bubbles has a beautiful soul and amazing spirit. She is gorgeous!”
