Barilla was so emaciated when her rescuers found her that she was unable to walk. To say the dog was “skin and bone” is the understatement of the year!
With kindness, care and that astonishing dog resilience Barilla made an amazing recovery.
This poor emaciated dog was rescued by Otra Opotunidad, an animal rescue in Granada, Spain. When they found her, she was so malnourished she only weighed 16 pounds.
Poor Barilla could barely walk and would slump to the ground when unsupported.
With lots of TLC, Otra Oportunidad rehabilitated Barilla back to health.
In only a month, Barilla transformed from a bag of bones into a beautiful and healthy dog. She gained weight and turned into an energetic pooch who loves fetching balls.
Barilla was adopted by the head of Albergue Animales Dog House.
The dog and her new owner are now cycling across Spain to raise awareness for animal abuse.
