Barilla, a stray dog rescued from the streets, was featured in a film by the Spanish nonprofit Dog House Animal Shelter. We can observe the tremendous metamorphosis of this dog, who is now quite happy, in the same video.
Barilla was so weak and starved when she arrived at the shelter in Granada, Spain, that her bones were visible through her skin and her internal organs were on the verge of failing. The shelter’s owner, Eduardo Rodriguez, was determined to save her.
“I’ve been saving dogs since I was a youngster, and I’m used to seeing them in horrible health, but Barilla was the worst I’ve ever seen.” She had been without water or nourishment for so long that she could only move her head and tail when we rescued her ».
“His progress has been incredible. Most regular pets would have perished, the vet informed us multiple times. We are now intertwined. I informed my coworkers the first day I met her that I was going to remain with her, and that has been the case ever since.
Due to starvation, Barilla couldn’t even stand at first, but things quickly changed. The change of the dog, which can now not only stand on its four legs but also run and play like any other dog, can be seen in the video.
