A homeless dog living in a parking area was saved by an animal rescue group called “Howl Of A Dog” in Romania. Zuzi, the poor pup, had no place to go, so she went through winter with no shelter and would just sleep on the ground or on the cold cement. Sadly, even though some people might have seen her, no one even bothered to give her some help.
For Zuzi to survive, she would rely on getting leftovers from a nearby company’s employees, but some of them would just chase her away when they see her. Because of some people’s treatment, it came to the point where she didn’t even know who to trust anymore. Which made things hard for the rescuers to approach her.
Every time they got near her, Zuzi would start barking and even bared her teeth at them. They were informed that she had traumatizing experiences with dogcatchers when they tried to seize her with poles. They realized that it was better not to use a catchpole on Zuzi because it might trigger her trauma, and she would just run away from them.
So they decided that the best solution would be to tranquilize her under the supervision of a veterinarian. Zuzi eventually calmed down and stopped her defensive aggression against them. When the rescuers saw that it was safe to come closer, they finally got a hold of her and brought her back home with them.
Under Howl Of A Dog’s care, she was treated for her fleas and wounds. She is learning to trust again and won’t have to worry about sleeping outside on the cold ground. She now was her own bed and even had her name printed on it. Zuzi and the other rescue dogs may seem to have everything here, but they still need help finding a home. Watch Zuzi’s story and find out how to help pups like her in the video below.
