In St. Petersburg, Florida, a woman and a dog who are both survivors of domestic violence have formed a loving bond and found comfort in each other.
In 2012, Melissa Dohme was stabbed 32 times by her ex-boyfriend. Most of the stab wounds were on her face.
On the other hand, Khalessi is a severly abused Pit Bull who was likely used as a bait dog. And because of that, Khalessi lost half of her face.
The two got to meet each other when they were brought together by photographer Lisa Otto for a special photo shoot.

Aren’t they beautiful?
Melissa Dohme told ABC News, “You can’t keep us down, and we won’t be silenced.” These two are giving hope to domestic abuse victims everywhere.
