It’s truly heartbreaking to see a skinny dog on the streets. It’s worse if that dog is also a mother who had just given birth. Fortunately, dog rescuers and volunteer foster parents exist to help dogs in these circumstances.
A woman named Aria met a mother dog that was severely emaciated. Despite being in bad shape, the dog was very calm and friendly. Aria knew that she didn’t want to let that dog go, so she brought it home along with the puppies.
Aria named the dog Bella, and she began taking care of her and the puppies. Unfortunately, two of the puppies didn’t survive because they were very sickly. One puppy, however, survived and was named Luka.
Luka was quickly adopted into a good home. After that, Aria continued working on improving Bella’s health condition. The dog was severely underweight and needed a lot of food to gain the right weight.
Aria fed Bella four times a day in small increments. Bella gained weight on a steady phase, and her coat became brighter. The improvement to her health condition also made Bella more friendly. She always wanted to cuddle with Aria.
Aria’s favorite part when taking care of Bella was seeing her learn to be a dog. She doesn’t know how to socialize with fellow dogs. So Aria made her play with another dog.
After working on Bella’s social skills, Aria took her out for hikes and trips to the beach. She had to experience life outside of the house. As expected, Bella loved being outside, particularly at the beach.
Bella became the dog she was meant to be. Thus it was time for her to move to the next step. Aria had done a good job fostering which meant it wasn’t going to be hard finding adopters. Eventually, Bella indeed found herself under the care of a loving family.
