A resident of Puerto Rico named Heather Martin accidentally found out about the dog. The shabby, scared poor thing was spotted among the garbage bags – she was looking there for food, and was sleeping right on the bags. Luckily, she was reported to local rescuers, who found, fed, and picked up the doggie.
She was named Stella and was about a year old. When Heather found out about the dog and saw pictures of her, she immediately fell in love with this sweet creature. She and her husband were just about to get a dog and were both charmed by Stella.
The couple knew the poor girl still needed treatment. “She was left in a garbage dump and miraculously survived, spending every day there picking up whatever scraps she could find. She was found to have severe scabies, parasites, and fleas. She was very thin,” Heather said.
When the shelter staff treated Stella, the new owners were allowed to take her. Heather and her husband were happy to welcome Stella into their family. After a while, the doggie changed dramatically. Her owners recently took another dog from the shelter – and now Stella isn’t bored at all. Her new family gives her so much love and care that she is now unrecognizable!
