Life on the streets isn’t easy for anyone, especially the smallest and most vulnerable of us. This darling Chihuahua was found living in an alley with nothing but a cardboard box to call home. If it hadn’t been for one homeowner who made sure the little girl had enough food to eat, the precious pup wouldn’t have stood a chance in this cruel, hard world.
Someone finally called the 'Hope for Paws' rescue organization, who rushed to the pup’s side to see how they could help. Eldad Hagar and Loreta Frankonyte were the heroes assigned to the case, and they were overcome with emotion when they arrived and caught a glimpse of how sad and lonely the little girl looked.
In spite of being approached by strangers, the little pup was not the least bit frightened and seemed to want to cooperate with her two saviors.
As Loreta gently looped the collar around the doggy’s neck and after giving the pup a few reassuring caresses, she picked her up and carried her to the car. Once they were all settled in, the three of them started on their journey back to the shelter. On the way, Loreta named the sweet pup, “Princess” and promised to treat her “like royalty” from this moment on.
As soon as they arrived at the shelter, Loreta began Princess’ restoration with a luxurious, warm bath. It must have felt so good to have months’ of dirt and grime washed away and pesky fleas removed from her silky coat.
After Princess was thoroughly towel-dried and given a few welcomed scratches, Loreta took the pup to see the vet. The news they got was not good. Due to the hardship of living on the streets for so long, Princess had become severely anemic and would require several weeks of treatment before they would know if she was going to survive.
We’re happy to report that Princess sailed through her course of treatment and is now ready to find her forever home. If you are interested in adopting a sweet orphan like Princess, contact your local humane society or animal shelter.
When you do, you will be gaining the power to change not only the life of a lonely animal but will be transforming your own life, as well - through the love and companionship of your very own sweet four-legged friend.
