Meca is a pitbull that found herself in a shelter in Spain. She had been put up for adoption, and the volunteers were taking pictures of her to put on their Facebook page. Pictures of cute pups help them to get adopted, but if they hadn’t had their camera on them, they might not have documented what happened next! Meca caught the scent of something in a nearby trash dump. While it smelled disgusting to the volunteers, they had a feeling that Meca was on to something.
She tugged and pulled at her leash, begging them to continue on with her. She led them to a black plastic bag, and the volunteers weren’t sure why…until they saw it move, just a bit!
They opened the bag to reveal a live puppy! Her mouth had been tied shut with a ziptie, and her paws had been tied together so that she couldn’t escape or bark for help. Some horrid person had left this puppy to die of thirst or suffocation.
No one wanted to think about what would have happened to the poor little dog if Meca hadn’t caught the scent and heard the near-silent whimpers.
They decided to name her Campa, and with a bunch of extra love, attention, and rubs, she is on her way to recovery! Hopefully she will be adopted soon. Thanks to Meca’s daring rescue, this little pup has been given a new chance at life!
