We need more people like you in the world who are willing to save injured animals off the street. If your neighbors were so worried about her being taken away, why didn't they take her in and care for her? Because they didn't want the responsibility. You were the responsible one, and because of that, the dog got treatment, had food, shelter, and someone gets to adopt a healthy dog. Don't let them put a guilt trip on you. They were the "wrong" ones. By the way, I have a cat who got bit by another neighborhood cat. I cleaned his wounds and took care of him, but he soon developed a lump. He had to have surgery to remove an abcess that was a result of an infection to the wound. The vet said many animal's bite wounds become infected like this, even with treatment at home. My cat would not have gotten better if I wouldn't have taken him to the vet. This could have happened to the pit bull if you didn't take him for treatment.

"Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man."
--Arthur Schopenhauer (philosopher)
