Bella is a shelter dog who knows a lot about how lonely life can be. The sad dog had spent nearly her entire life trapped in a cold concrete enclosure at an overflowing city pound in Romania. Not only had she been kept caged and neglected, but she was ill. Bella might have spent her whole life in the pound, but thankfully, rescue group Howl ᴏf 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.
The worker made arrangements to break her free from the lonely, rundown pound.
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 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 OK. 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.
