For Helen, every day of her life revolves around survival. She has spent her life as a stray in Romania and has never experienced the security and comfort of having a real home and family.
After years of just trying to survive the cold and ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs roads, Helen thought she would never experience anything other than hardship and loneliness. But one day, a tourist happened to spot her, and suddenly everything changed.
A woman was on vacation in Romania when she saw a sad-looking dog sleeping on the street. Her heart was ʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ for the lost child, and while many continued walking, this woman decided to take action. She called animal rescue organization Howl Of A Dog, based in Romania, which rescues and relocates animals in need.
When they received the woman’s call, they immediately sent a rescue team to bring the lost person in. While waiting for the rescue force to appear, the woman decided to gather some more information about the condition of the lost person. She spoke to several shop owners and discovered that the pup had lived in the area for several years.
The stray would regularly come and ask for scraps, and they believed she had been lost her whole life.
The poor little dog had to spend every day of his life fending for himself and worrying about finding shelter and where to find his next meal. The woman waited with the dog until rescuers arrived on the scene and she could be sure the dog was in safe hands.
Rescuers gently persuaded the puppy to come with them, and they drove two hours back to the shelter. They were worried about the lost girl, so they decided to name her Helen, and they wanted to get her checked out as soon as possible. After living on the street for so long, it is likely that she is not only malnourished but also has an ɪɴꜰᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ or illness or some other untreated medical problem.
Back at the shelter, the vet examined her and discovered that Helen was suffering from tick-borne Anaplasmosis. The vet also discovered that it was likely that Helen had been living on the street for six years. But now those ʜᴏʀʀɪʙʟʏ long years have passed behind her and a brighter new chapter of her life has just begun.
She received antibiotics for her Anaplasmosis and received all the care she needed to grow strong and healthy.
Once her health problems were over, she was put up for adoption and Helen quickly found exactly what she was looking for. A family visits the shelter and immediately learns that Helen belongs to them. After six long years of loneliness and suffering, Helen finally found her home.
Helen can now wake up every day feeling safe, loved and happy. Because that woman made a simple phone call, Helen is now living a life she could not have dreamed of before.
She has everything she wants or needs, and she couldn’t be happier.
