Starving Dog Who Couldn’t Stand Up Makes An Incredible Transformation

When Barilla was brought to a rescue center in Granada, Spain, she was so starved that her bones were sticking out from her skin and her organs were close to failing. But the rescue’s owner Eduardo Rodriguez was determined to get her back on her paws.

“I’ve been rescuing dogs since I was a child and I’m used to seeing them in a bad way but I’ve never seen an animal in such a terrible state as Barilla,” Rodriguez told Daily Mail. “She’d been so starved of food and water when we took her in that all she could move was her head and her tail.”

After 7 weeks of treatment, Barilla now looks like a different dog. “Her recovery has been staggering,” said Rodriguez.”The vet said several times that…most normal dogs would have died. We’re inseparable now…The first day I saw her I told my colleagues I was going to keep her and that’s the way it’s been.”
