On Monday afternoon, Georgia, one of the so-called "Vicktory" dogs, rescued from the Michael Vick dog-fighting operation, died.

The sad news was released via social media, as well as on the Best Friends Blog.

Georgia's guardian, Amy, shared the following words about her beloved dog:

To all who loved Georgia,

I'm so sorry and sad to report that our girl, Georgia has left us. I kept hoping that she would be able to turn things around one last time with her strong will to live, but it was her time to go and she let me know she was ready.

She died peacefully with me by her side with the help of a wonderful home vet. Kathy Moore told me early on that Georgia would continue to get sweeter and she was so right -- she couldn't have been any sweeter to me trying to give me kisses up until the very end.

Georgia was adopted from Best Friends in August 2012; her guardian noted that the soulful dog inspired her daily.

Prior to her rescue, Georgia's body suffered multiple injuries - none of them were able to break her spirit.

After Georgia's passing, Amy wrote:

I've always loved the quote "Rescuing one animal may not change the world, but for that animal, their world is changed forever! Thank you to our girl, Georgia -- You certainly changed my world forever!
