Bella, a cute and charming puppy, spent most of her days living in a nearby animal shelter.
In Romania, the condition of dog shelters is quite different from that of the United States. These shelters usually consist of outdoor enclosures which do not provide the best conditions for dogs. Unfortunately, due to poverty, these shelters receive insufficient food donations, causing the dogs to suffer from malnutrition.
Bella is a perfect example of this. She was in a state of fear and malnourishment and had never experienced any love or affection from a human before. Her time at the shelter was breaking her spirit. Howl Of A Dog, a Romanian rescue organization, created a video about Bella’s rescue from the shelter with the hope of finding her a permanent home where she can thrive.
As Bella and her rescuers hurried to the vet, she remained calm beside her newfound human companion. However, Bella was aware that her life was about to change for the better, as she would finally be given the affection and attention she had always deserved. The shelter staff noticed how tired and anxious she was, struggling to find comfort in her kennel. Yet, as she received gentle strokes and affectionate pats, Bella gradually eased into a state of relaxation, finally able to let her guard down and rest. It was a heartwarming sight to see.
Bella’s act of gratitude was incredibly heartwarming. As she was taken to the vet, she peacefully rested her head on the lap of the person who saved her and drifted off to sleep. The ride was a peaceful one, with a kind and welcoming woman by her side, providing the safety and comfort Bella needed. Creating a sense of security is critical for dogs, particularly those in shelters. Thankfully, since the video was shared, Bella has found her forever home and is now living a happy life. Let’s help spread the word about Bella’s story and encourage more people to adopt dogs from shelters who are in desperate need of love and affection.
