Mother Dog Tied To A Tree And Left For Dead. When Rescuers Arrived, They Were Shocked To See What She Was Guarding

July 21, 2017

Pit Bulls have a bad rap. They are known as aggressive, mean dogs when in actuality you can't generalize an entire breed. I believe there are no bad dogs, just bad owners. Dogs are like kids, you have to teach them right or wrong. Any breed of dog can be the sweetest or the meanest depending on how they are raised. But Pit Bulls have the worst misconception all wrapped around their name. This is a story about one of those Pit Bulls... 

Abandoned pit bull mix named Lara was found in a forest near Nafplion, Greece. Lara had been abandoned and tied to a tree. To make matters worse Lara was pregnant. Despite all odds, Lara gave birth in the middle of nowhere, all alone, to 4 healthy puppies. She miraculously kept them alive for 10 days without food, water or shelter until she was finally rescued.


People in the nearby village knew about her, but nobody untied her, nor provided her with food or water. Knowbody got involved until someone called and reported the tied up dog. Rescuers arrived to find mama dog tied up to the tree and her puppies laying beside her. Lara was extremely malnourished and dehydrated but alive.

Sadly, it was too much for one of the puppies and the little guy did not make it. The other three were happy, healthy and completely unaware of the ordeal they had just gone through. Their mom was their hero and she did everything in her power to save them. 

Immediately they were taken to their foster home where their new foster mom, Linda could give them the care they needed. After a few days, Lara was able to trust Linda and started eating again.

The puppies are growing because of the safe environment that Linda has provided. Lara could finally relax and not worry about anything at all.
