When a StarveԀ ρuρρy was brought into a Spanish animal rescue center in Granada, Spain, one day, the volunteers at the center were worried that the puppy wouldn’t make it.
This puppy was so StarveԀ that her bones were sticking of out her skin. To make matters worse, her organs were almost failing. She had so little muscle that she had trouble walking or standing.
Fortunately, not all hope was lost. Eduardo Rodriguez, the kind-hearted owner of the center, refused to give up on this Starving and decided to take her in.
Eduardo named the Starving puppy Barilla spaghetti because of how thin she was. When Eduardo had spaghetti examined by a vet, the vet told Eduardo that there was significant chance that spaghetti wouldn’t make it. Still, Eduardo refused to give up on her and let her d.i.e.
Eduardo told the Daily Mail,
“She’d been so StarveԀ of food and water when we took her in that all she could move was her head and her tail. She didn’t have any muscle mass. I’ve been rescuing dogs since I was a child and I’m used to seeing them in a bad way but I’ve never seen an animal in such a terrible state as Barilla.
The vet said we were lucky we got her when we did because she might not have survived another night. We put her on a drip for six hours before we started feeding her. We made her a type of harness to help her walk so she could gain muscle mass because she couldn’t support her own weight.”
Because spaghetti weighed only 16 pounds, she had to be placed on a drip to make sure she didn’t suffer from an organ failure. Spaghetti could only move her head and wag her tail as she fought for her life.
“Her will to live was amazing and I felt a connection with her the moment I saw her. We’re inseparable now. She’s so intelligent and obedient. The first day I saw her I told my colleagues I was going to keep her and that’s the way it’s been.”
