Little Girl Stumbles On A Concrete Grave With A Dog Waiting To Be Found
A 6-year-old girl named Cara was playing outside in her near her home in the Waterside area of Londonderry, in the U.K. As she was venturing out further, she found something that would shock any other kid her age. As she
She stumbled onto a concrete hole in the ground. As she took a peek inside the hole, she noticed that something was moving. A blind, emaciated boxer with cracked teeth and an infected uterus had been thrown into the hole to die in the sludge-filled grave.
Brave little Cara sprung into action. She ran home and quickly told her father what she had seen.
Had Cara never been so curious about her surroundings, the poor boxer would have never been rescued.
Her father, Kenny, says: “We are a family of animal lovers and have a dog ourselves, so we took her home with us and gave her a tin of food, which she gulped down in under 15 seconds. We kept her at home that night and let her sleep on the sofa because she was clearly exhausted and distressed. In fact, my 15-year-old son Ethan slept on the other sofa to help her settle before we contacted the Rainbow Centre.”
The Centre and the dog Bella and posted her story online, which reached more than 450,000 people. Support came pouring in for Bella!
Last night Rainbow received a call from a very concerned member of the public.
His daughter had been out playing and heard a dog crying down a hole. Reacting to what his daughter had told him he went to look only to discover in horror that an elderly boxer had been dumped down a hole and covered over with planks of wood & bricks.
Rainbow responded and what we saw was disgusting.
We are shocked and horrified that a person in our society would not such a thing on an elderly blind boxer or to any animal!!
The elderly female boxer was taken to the vets this morning and what can we say….
Very sadly she is totally blind and one eye is extremely ulcerated. Her mouth is full of broken and cracked teeth causing her great discomfort. She is emaciated and has been bred & bred & over bred causing her nipple discomfort .The vet has advised us to keep a close eye also for pyometra. (Pyometra is defined as an infection in the uterus. Pyometra is considered a serious and life-threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively)
She was found in the Drumahoe area…do you know who put her down the hole? Do you know who owns her? We would like these people named & shamed please contact the centre in confidence if you know anything!!
What makes this story worst it that people have been buying pups of this dog!!!!
The family who found her named her Bella. We would like to thank The Bideau family for taking great care of Bella and most important for making that call for help. Thanks guys xxx
