A lovely pup had spent her entire existence wandering the streets until a kind-hearted tourist finally noticed her.
While exploring a quaint vacation spot in Romania, a tourist felt compelled to aid a stray dog she spotted wandering around town. She reached out to Howl Of A Dog, an animal charity known for assisting stray dogs throughout the country. After a two-hour drive, the rescue team stumbled upon the furry creature, who had found shelter in a nook with some cardboard and a cushion.
According to Howl Of A Dog’s YouTube account, the locals told them upon their arrival that the dog had been a longtime resident of the area, and it seemed as though she was well-known by everyone.
We gave the name Helen to a stray dog who was fortunate enough to be accepted as “the local dog” by the community. She had found a secure place for herself and got her meals from kind-hearted people who passed by.
Living on the streets is not easy, especially for elderly dogs like Helen. They have to endure harsh winter weather, rain and storms, without proper medical attention. Moreover, they are always at risk of getting hit by cars or mistreated by insensitive humans. But when rescuers came to feed Helen and put a leash around her, she seemed to recognize their intentions.
Helen didn’t resist as she knew that her life on the streets had come to an end. Upon examination by the veterinarian, the plastic tag in her ear revealed that she was part of a spay and release initiative that ended in 2013. For at least six years, Helen had been surviving on her own on the streets.
The compassionate nature of Helen impressed Howl Of A Dog during their visit to the shelter.
Describing Helen is a challenge because she is an amazing dog with a calm and friendly personality. She behaves exceptionally well, making her charming to be around. It’s sad that such a wonderful dog has been living alone on the streets for so long. Despite thousands of visitors to the resort town, no one seemed to have noticed her until a kind lady from Finland found her and contacted us.
Helen now has the chance to enjoy the latter part of her life surrounded by a family that loves and cares for her.
Currently under the loving care of Howl Of A Dog in Romania, Helen is seeking a permanent home in the United States, Canada, or Europe. To learn more about adopting Helen, simply check out Howl Of A Dog’s website for further details on the adoption procedure.
