If you were to hop in a time machine and go back in time about seven years, you’d probably be watching ESPN coverage on Michael Vick being indicted for running a highly illegal dogfighting ring. Most of the dogs were pit bulls who were forced to fight each other.

When the reports surfaced, not only did animal groups freak out, but so did everyone else. As a matter of fact, according to the Huffington Post, the Humane Society of the United States felt that the animals had been abused beyond rehabilitation.

Despite this, the Best Friends Animals Society disagreed with that claim, and took the pups in, who are now known as “Vicktory Dogs.”

“Currently 10 of the Vicktory Dogs are thriving with their adopted families, some living happily with other dogs, children and even a cat,” Michelle Weaver, a manager at BFAS told the Huffington Post.

From then until now, these dogs have been able to successfully recover from their vicious abuse, and it’s pretty fairy tale-like.

If you like happy endings, you’ll love the photos below that show the abused dogs living their new lives.
