Having a pet is a big commitment and requires a lot of responsibility from a person in order to care for it. The owner of a pet is liable for their pet’s safety and well-being since they are living creatures and are wholly dependent on their owners.
Recently a dog was captured by concerned citizens as it was seen hanging off a balcony for dear life. Luckily though it was saved before anything could have happened to it.
Bella, an adorable German Shepherd puppy, had a very tough start in life. She used to live in Cairo, Egypt, where her owner condemned her to a life of misery. She was kept outside on the third floor of an apartment building. Worst of all, she was [ᴄʜᴀɪɴᴇᴅ] to the balcony railings so that she could never escape.
Until she took a terrible chance and jumped. It was probably [sᴛᴀʀᴠɪɴɢ] and had tried to jump off the balcony as a last resort to escape it’s miserable surroundings.
Passersby heard her awful screech as the dog dangled helplessly from the balcony, the [ᴄʜᴀɪɴ] biting brutally into her neck.
Still, it almost took too long for help to arrive.
“She was over the balcony for about five hours we think,” Lauren Connelly of Special Needs Rescue and Rehabilitation (SNARR), a U.S.-based rescue group.
When someone finally got into the apartment and hauled her up, Bella was barely alive. The injuries to her neck were [ɢʀɪᴇᴠᴏᴜs]. After, she got medical care and found a forever family for her
In May 2015, Bella flew farther than she ever could have imagined. A woman in Massachusetts had agreed to foster her. From there, she found her forever home.
Today, Bella, who is nearly 2 years old, lives in Houston, Texas. With a couple of humans. And a new doggy brother.
