The yelping came from above.
When the people in Cairo, Egypt looked up, they saw a German Shepherd hanging from a third-floor balcony! How the poor dog could even manage to cry for help is amazing.
The dog, Bella, was hanging, by her neck. The chain around her neck kept her from falling, but Bella was a big dog, and it could have also caused her death.
No one knows for sure how long Bella was hanging there, but some say it could have been as long as five hours. A kind man was able to gain entry into the apartment and pull Bella to safety.
The truth was soon revealed. Bella was thin and had been forced to live on a narrow, dirty balcony. No life for any dog. The ESMA (Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals) seized Bella.
She would never again be forced to live in filth. Bella was given a foster home in the United States through the group Special Needs Rescue and Rehabilitation.
Do you know of dogs in your neighborhood that live chained up in the yard?
Are the dogs thin? Do the humans take care of them during cold weather? Dogs that are being mistreated need our help. Don’t let any dogs (or any other animals) suffer in silence.
