The German Shepherd appeared near the construction site unexpectedly, and the builders working there noticed it. She was very thin, tortured and modest, and a prayer was read in her eyes …
Texas workers near the construction site found a dog that someone apparently threw out into the street, as it was a thoroughbred, namely a German shepherd. Only the animal was severely emaciated, covered in mud, and it was impossible to look at it without pity. They poured water for the poor thing and called the local shelter.
Shelter staff arrived quickly, took the shepherd and took her to the veterinary clinic. There they learned that the dog was 6 years old and had serious health problems. The vet said she had advanced scabies and a lot of parasites.
In addition, all this time the shepherd was in too small collars, which squeezed her neck tightly. The shelter worker removed it at the place where the animal was found.
Despite exhaustion and poor health, Athena (as she was called) was filled with love and gratitude for her saviors.
During the treatment, the dog developed a lovely habit. Whenever Athena wanted to eat, she took her plate between her teeth and held on until she attracted attention.
“She is given a lot of attention, and in love she just bathes! However, she realized that if she held her plate with a cute expression on her face, then she would receive even more attention! – shared one of the workers of the shelter.
Here is a video where you can see everything:
At the moment, the shepherd is looking for a new home, because she again trusts people. We hope that she will have a caring and loving owner!
