Dog who had a hard life on the streets embraces those who rescued and cured her in gratitude
Natalie Olivieri is vice president of Furever Bully Love Rescue, a rescue group based in Orlando, Florida (USA). She found Harper, an abandoned dog in a large field in Redland, Florida. This place is known to have a large population of stray dogs, and the volunteers do their best to feed them.
Unfortunately, the number of dogs in need of urgent help is huge and the volunteers in the rescue groups cannot cope. In February 2017, Natalie joined forces with the Redland Rock Pit and found Harper there. She realized that she had been abused and traumatized. He was about a year old at the time and would have been in Redlands for 5 months.
Natalie told The Dodo:
The place is practically a dumping ground for dogs. People leave them there.
Scared dog keeps hanging on to his rescuers
The dog was covered in scars that showed she had been abused, so Natalie decided they would take her away. As best he could, he put a collar on her, but instantly the terrified dog was paralyzed with fear.
Harper went out with five other dogs. As soon as Harper approached us and we met, she fell to the ground in fear.
Upon arriving in Orlando, they went to the vet where she was diagnosed with anemia, worms and a dental infection. It all started to be dealt with, but the hardest thing was his fear of people. At first, she couldn’t even stand up, and the volunteers even helped her go to the bathroom; she clung to it.
Jennifer Adorno, President of Furever Bully Love Rescue said:
I have never had a dog that hugs me so tight.
Harper was taken to foster care, her mother Cheryl Kessler managed within weeks to notice increasing improvement in her behavior.
She comes out of her kennel and runs outside. She relieves herself in the backyard, and he’s just a very normal, typical dog. I love to see her come out of her shell and out of her personality.
A few weeks later they found out she was pregnant and gave birth to 8 puppies and they all found permanent homes. Harper realized that now he would always have affection and nourishment.
Dogs like Harper, who have been through tough times, are gentle and always grateful. They seem to remember how lucky they were to finally have a home and a lot of love.
