A Dog Chained for Years, Unable to Rest Her Head, Finally Rescued – Witness the Heartwarming Transformation in After Pics

Many people out there treat their dogs like their children, but then there are others, who subjugate these sweet creatures to extremely inhumane conditions. Cala, the guard-dog of a mechanic in San Jose, Costa Rica, was one of those unfortunate pups. Her owner kept her chained up on a chain so short that she had no way of resting her head and could barely breathe. When she was sick the owner wouldn’t take her to the vet and rarely fed her. Fortunately for Cala, her suffering had a positive end.

Concerned neighbors saw the conditions her owner had kept her in for years and reported them to the police as well as the animal shelterTerritorio de Zaguates. When she was finally rescued, Cala had to be treated for emaciation, wounds, and malnutrition.
