Many people in life treat their dogs like their own children, but there are also others who subdue these sweet creatures in ᴇxᴛʀᴇᴍᴇʟʏ ɪɴʜᴜᴍᴀɴᴇ conditions. The dog, named Cala, was raised as a guard dog by a mechanic who lives near San Jose Costa Rica. However, this mechanic rarely feeds Cala and he doesn’t take her to the animal hospital when she is sɪᴄᴋ. Cala’s health deteriorated and she struggled alone to hold her head high. She even started having trouble with her health. If help doesn’t come soon, Cala will come ᴅɪᴇ. Fortunately for Cala, her sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀɪɴɢ had a good ending.
Concerned neighbors saw the conditions her owner had kept her in for years and reported them to the police as well as the animal shelter Territorio de Zaguates. When she was finally rescued, Cala had to be treated for ᴇᴍᴀᴄɪᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, ᴡᴏᴜɴᴅs, ᴀɴᴅ ᴍᴀʟɴᴜᴛʀɪᴛɪᴏɴ.
Lya Battle, founder of Territorio de Zaguates said: “The first time I saw her, it showed a being ᴘɪᴛɪꜰᴜʟ ʀᴏʙʙᴇᴅ with dignity and a willingness to give up everything — a dog whose spirit had been broken down. and just waiting for ᴇɴᴅ to come while living ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ-ᴇɴᴅɪɴɢ ɴɪɢʜᴛᴍᴀʀᴇ. Those around her still have to ᴄᴀᴜsᴇ her through curing her , especially her ᴄᴀᴜsᴇᴅ by ʜᴀɴɢɪɴɢ from a metal chain that’s been tightened around her neck for years” .
Taking care of her is the same for her as it is for our own, but she eventually understands that after comes love and treatment, so she learned to deal with it like a homeless person’s real enemy.
At first, Cala didn’t like the other dogs on the foster, which led Battle to believe that Cala had never met other dogs, or that she had been trained to ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ them. But Cala slowly began to trust other dogs as well as people. “Have seen Cala go from an animal ᴡᴇᴀᴋ, ꜰᴇᴇʙʟᴇ, too depressed to care,” said Lya Battle, to a stronger being ready to stand up for herself”.
Over time, Cala has incorporated fun and getting used to her daily routines. With each passing day, we see more of her personality unfold. She has gone from being afraid of people to trusting them and even ‘annoying’ them to get her attention.”
Immediately after rescuing her, Cala will be given more care at the hands of a human. Currently, Cala is living with a host family and has learned to get along with new people and dogs. “After years of ɴᴇɢʟᴇᴄᴛ, ᴛᴏʀᴛᴜʀᴇ, and ɪᴍᴘʀɪsᴏɴᴍᴇɴᴛ,” says Battle, “Cala seems to be removing all of his former employer’s past of misconduct from his system, and we all think that’s fine. She is cheerful, strong, willful, somewhat stubborn and spoiled by her adoptive mother and family. This ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ is an epic battle between good against evil and hate against love, and in the end, as always, love wins.”
