Based On A True Story (DVD)
Movies never make me cry but this one did, for what happened to Donna and Susie, and at the outpouring of support for the tiny puppy. I love animals and since my family has rescue pets this movie was especially poignant for me.
Susie's Hope is a well made movie that pulls viewers right into Donna and Susie's lives. One of the things I really like about this movie is that the adult Susie is played by the real Susie herself, I just wanted to reach through the screen and give her a hug.
I will note that the Dove Approved rating of 12+ is right on. Younger kids might get upset at times.
Susie's Hope is all about triumph over tragedy and how even the most damaged can make a huge difference. And it's also about the power of love, friendship, and forgiveness. Don't miss this powerful movie.

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 even won the American Humane Association’s American Hero Dog this year!
