Silva was amazed when she saw Isa coming close to.
” I was looking out the front gate when I saw her carrying something strange,” .Silva said
Ends up, Isa had saved a life.
Sure enough, cradled in little Isa’s arms, was a little puppy. Silva was perplexed and responded somewhat roughly at first, but after that she found out the story.
Isa had actually been walking nearby when she saw some young boys on the street kicking the pup. She decided to step in and bring the dog to safety.
Hearing that, Silva had a change of heart. “I’m glad she saved her,” she said. The puppy had a injury on her head from the abuse, so Silva and Isa rushed to obtain her treated.
Since then, the puppy – right now named Mel – has recovered well in Isa and Silva’s home. They have several other rescue dogs currently, but Isa and Mel have formed a bond unlike any other.
” Mel is glued to Isa, and Isa treats her like a daughter,” Silva said. “The first thing she does after school is go see little Mel. They are inseparable.”
Growing up, Isa has been instilled with a feeling of protectiveness and care for animals in need– and currently, with every wag of Mel’s little tail, the reward for her open heart is manifest.
” I am proud [of Isa],” Silva said. “It is our responsibility to respect animals. Their love is a gift.”
