This dog was locked up for 6 years. All this time, the starving pit bull hoped for a miracle, which did happen. As an animal rescue and owner support worker for “One Tail at a Time”, Heather Owen saved and rehabilitated the poor dog from starvation.
A pit bull named Arugula was abandoned in an alley near the houses and was covered with a blanket. The dog was terribly weak from exhaustion and could not even raise his head. Arugula was immediately taken to the veterinary clinic. Emergency assistance was fortunately provided on time. A few days later, the dog was already able to stand up and take a few steps.
After some time, it became clear that the dog had been kept in terrible conditions and had been rarely fed, and when she was already starving, they simply threw her out into the street to the mercy of fate. How cruel people can be!
Fortunately for Arugula, a foster family was found in Chicago, who took her from the hospital to their home. The dog was dressed in a warm sweater, as she was very weak and could easily catch a cold. The pit bull felt very well in the foster family and was gradually gaining strength. He loved to walk outdoors and play with toys.
After some time, Arugule recovered almost completely and had to leave her foster family. Arigula was very lucky to find a new family that was already permanent for her!
Her owner’s name is Heidi and she loves animals very much. This family already had a pet dog named Hunter. Arugula was happy to meet a new friend. Now there will be someone to play with and the dog will not be bored. Heidi’s children also fell in love with their new four-legged friend.
In a word, this is a story with a happy ending…
