After being viciously attacked on Aug. 8, Christy Mack is finding new inspiration from a sweet and unexpected source — her dogs Cleo and Swayzee! Christy took to her Twitter on Aug. 16 to reveal how her ‘babies’ are helping her heal.
Christy Mack, 23, is still recovering after she was assaulted on Aug. 8, allegedly by her ex-boyfriend, MMA fighter War Machine, 32. As she continues down the road to recovery, two special animals tried to help by sending their “mom” Christy very sweet and touching messages.
Christy Mack’s Pitbulls: Touching Pics That Gave Her Hope After Brutal Attack
Christy is getting support from around the world after her attack — and that includes her dogs. Christy shared a side-by-side photo of two dogs on Twitter on Aug. 16. Each dog had a note around the neck. Each note said, “Hi Mom! Love u,” and then the dog’s name. Their names are Swayzee and Cleo.
Christy captioned the photo with: “Just received a wonderful message from my babies, I can’t wait to see my little sugars again.”
Christy is a big dog lover, specifically of the pitbull breed. Back in July 2012, Christy told Dirty Diablos about her love of pitbulls. “I love puppies. I like pitbulls a lot. I have two to five in my house at any given time. Some of them are mixes, most of them are pure breds,” she said.
We think it’s SO wonderful that Christy’s finding happiness and healing in her precious fur babies.
