Shelter dog Bella had a very rough life.
The poor dog spent the majority of her life in a concrete kennel in a Romanian city pound. She rarely got to go outside, and she had very little human contact. She also had fleas, and she had issues with her spleen and liver that had gone untreated.
Bella might have spent her whole life in the pound, but thankfully, rescue group Howl of the Dog stepped in right in time.
One of the group’s staff members visited the pound and saw Bella. She reached out her hand, and Bella immediately licked her palm. The dog was sweet and gentle, and she clearly just wanted somebody to love her.
Howl of a Dog rescued Bella that day. They took her to their shelter, where she rested before her veterinary appointment. Bella immediately seemed more relaxed than she had at the shelter.
“She seemed to have instantly understood that she was being rescued and that she’s safe,” Howl of a Dog said.
From the first moment Bella arrived at Howl of a Dog’s shelter, it was clear the pup loved people. She sat down right to next to her rescuer on a couch. Then, exhausted from everything that had happened that day, she fell asleep on her rescuer’s lap.
“She was so trusting and relieved to be finally rescued that she simply fell asleep in my arms while we were heading to the veterinary clinic,” Howl of a Dog wrote on Facebook.
Bella’s veterinary appointment went well—the vet gave the pup supplements for her spleen and liver. He also gave her a medicated bath that helped get rid of her fleas and reduced her itchiness.
After the appointment, Bella and her rescuer headed back to the shelter, where Bella quickly settled in. The slightly underweight dog ate plenty of food, and she relaxed and played with the other pups in the shelter.
In the weeks that Bella has been with Howl of a Dog, she has transformed from a scared animal into a happy, content dog. This pup has come so far since she was first rescued!
“Bella is doing fine now, receiving all the care she needs to regain her health and joy,” Howl of the Dog said. “Once she’s completely recovered she will be up for adoption.”
Bella hasn’t had an easy life, but now, she’s finally in a safe place where she can relax and be herself. We’re so glad Bella has found such a wonderful group of people to help her!
