This is the story of Amore. She is a petite boxer estimated around a year old and weighing 40 pounds. This girl has had such a rough start in life. Amore is from Puerto Rico. She found herself as a stray during Hurricane Maria. She took cover under a car port as the elements came at her from all sides. Miraculously, she survived on her own through the storms. With only some scarring and bumps, Amore was found by caring people and taken in by her finders. They knew she deserved a good life. As we all know, Puerto Rico suffered so much devastation and went weeks without power. Her finders knew her best chance at a new life would be here, in the states.
