The people of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania witnessed an unfortunate scene where a poor abandoned dog was left waiting for its owner during freezing weather. This caused concern amongst the community, leading them to reach out to experienced rescuer, Janine Guido, who is the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue. Upon receiving the call for help, Guido bravely drove to the location to save the helpless dog. Guido later shared on Speranza Animal Rescue’s Facebook page that an abandoned dog often sits and waits for its family to return, highlighting the heartbreaking reality of pet abandonment.
Guido has been keeping an eye on a dog who has been missing for five days now. He has spent the last three days trying to catch her since he was called for help. The dog seems to trust Guido as she has eaten out of his hand for the past two days, but unfortunately, she runs away whenever Guido tries to put a leash on her. Several people are trying to catch the dog, which is making her increasingly scared. Sadly, there have been no sightings of her today, which is worrying. Guido is praying that the dog stays where she is. If anyone sees the dog, Guido advises not to chase her, feed her, follow her, or try to catch her.
Regrettably, Carla went missing for a few days, but fortunately, a kind-hearted individual found her resting on their porch and notified Guido. However, when he arrived to retrieve her, the frightened pup vanished once more. Thankfully, someone contacted Guido shortly after to inform him that Carla had returned.
Guido made several attempts to capture Carla, but he finally succeeded and took her with him. He brought her to a veterinary clinic to have her checked for any internal injuries. Fortunately, everything was fine, but it was discovered that Carla was severely underweight, weighing only 15 to 20 pounds less than the ideal weight for her size. This suggested that she had been surviving on her own for quite some time.
Carla had fleas crawling all over her and had a slight frostbite and arthritis in her paws, which caused her to limp. However, there is good news that she will no longer have to endure the cold outside. Guido took a picture of Carla and shared it, mentioning that she would be sleeping in a cozy home with her new family. He expressed his affection for Carla and stated that he already loves her dearly.
Following her medical procedures, she indulged in some delectable dishes and became eligible for adoption!
Carla, the adorable pup, was all set to go on her usual strolls and have some fun with her fellow shelter mates.
Carla eventually ended up with a family that cherishes her and provides her with excellent care. We are absolutely thrilled for Carla’s happy conclusion and we hope that she continues to flourish!
