Dying Dog Found Locked Up In A Crate All Covered In Feces Gets Completely Transformed By Love

Back in November, Animal Cruelty Division received a call about what seemed to be a dead dog lying in a filthy crate in Austin, Texas. When the officers arrived they found a pooch all covered in feces, severely emaciated and completely starved. Upon closer inspection, detective Ewa Wagner saw the doggie’s rib move…

“We realized [the dog] was alive, but just barely, so we rushed her to the Austin Animal Center where vets began emergency treatment,” Officer Wagner told The Huffington Post. “Her temperature was too low to even register on a thermometer and she wasn’t moving at all. We didn’t think there was any way she would survive.”

But an angel by the name of Elizabeth Mancera, the veterinary technician, rushed to help. For the next few hours she was giving the pooch lifesaving care. The vet also gave her a warm bath, and gently used a blow dryer to help raise the doggie’s body temperature. “During those first few hours I just talked to her and told her she was loved,” says Mancera. She decided to name the dog Sophie and realized she wanted to adopt this brave little survivor.

The dog has fully recovered and is adored by her new family. “She’ll never miss another meal and she’ll never be cold again,” asserts Elizabeth. “That I am sure of.”

I don't fucking believe this. Fuck those fuckers who left the dog locked in a cage without even a change to try to fend for herself. I hope they die in a cage in some godforsaken prison cell.

When I read this kind of articles I can feel my face getting read and the tears invading my eyes. What I hope with all my heart is that every person that reads this story (and others similar to this one) get inspired not only to say "thank you for shaving, helping, caring, etc) but to get into action themselves. It can be saving a stray or treating well the one you have at home, volunteering, helping with money or simply teaching your kids to respect and value all living creatures.
