Far from the glitzy high rise apartments and glamorous shops of Miami, Florida a tiny survivor pooch scavenged for food. Just a year ago, she had been left behind by her owners. In a “not so nice neighborhood,” her family packed up some of their furniture, their clothes and whatever they could salvage and abandoned their home in the final stage of foreclosure. Yet, sometimes banks don’t act quickly, and perhaps no one noticed the frightened little terrier and her wide, sorrowful eyes waiting outside day after day – hoping her family would come back for her.
And as the days and months slowly marched on, the little dog continued to fend for herself and ate scraps of food from the kind people who felt sorry for her. Matted and filthy, no one seemed to care, and by then the little dog knew she had been betrayed and abandoned.
On Friday afternoon, the little survivor’s life changed.
“Safe, thanks to Gloria Cabal and Isabel Zapata. She will get a good meal and intense grooming tonight and will be headed to our vet Crossroads Animal Hospital at Kendall tomorrow for full exam and vetting. We don’t know what we will encounter but we will make sure that he/she gets whatever is needed,” Ana Lopez Garay, vice president at Paw Patrol Animal Rescue & Sanctuary
