Dog Locked Up In Garbage Bag And Left By A River Bed To Rot Is Saved Just In Time
Every now and then there’s an animal rescue story that takes my breath away. Oliviero’s is one such story. Please note that this story consists of some graphic images that might be disturbing to some viewers.
Two women were walking in Messina in southerly Italy when they stumbled across a trash bag lying in a dry river. They listened to whimpers coming from the bag and mosted likely to investigate. What they located shocked and frightened them.
The dog had actually been bound with electric cable, placed in a garbage bag and after that dumped along the Terme Vigliatore river. To add to the horror of the scene, a dead calf lay rotting nearby.
Help was called and an animal rescue volunteer, Linda Li, showed up on the scene. She noted that the young canine remained in serious problem. His body was covered with hundreds of ticks and fly larvae and he remained in shock and dehydrated.
” They were eating [him] alive,” Linda claimed of the insects. His rescuers provided him water and then instantly filled him right into a vehicle and rushed him to a vet.
Here is a video clip of when he was first found:
Oliviero was so happy to be saved he wagged his tail any time he was given attention. Veterinarians examining Oliviero determined he was paralyzed in his back legs due to an unknown trauma.
A year has past because his rescue and Oliveira has found a loving home with Dominique Mastroianni.
He is enjoying his brand-new life. Oliveira has doggie brother or sisters to play with and loves to cuddle with his brand-new mom and dad.
Looking at him currently, it’s hard to believe he was so near death.
