A stray dog eagerly waits to be fed by passersby. But of course she never imagines that her desperation for her food will lead her to become the mockery of many.
Her name is Bolinha, and she was abandoned at a gas station off a rural highway in western Brazil. She had been living on the streets for several years in the midst of misery, where she survived among the drivers who stopped to put fuel and people who looked at her indifferently, placed food from waste from the cafeteria.
The stray dog became obese being the laughingstock of all but no one helped her
The unhealthy eating affected the 9-year-old dog to such proportions that she gradually became morbidly obese. Sadly, no one was careful about her diet, until she weighed approximately 40 kilos.
At this point, many locals only came to meet the famous “little ball dog,” but no one bothered to get her help. The poor thing became a kind of “local attraction”, being very striking for her weight. What made many burst out of laughter as soon as they saw her and took photos of her to spread them on the networks.
Bolinha needed attention, it was not fun for her to be a “ball” as she was baptized.
In addition, his state of health was not at all adequate. The poor girl longed for love very much. One day, the heartbroken dog from so much teasing, she crawled into a junkyard and stopped moving altogether. It was then that some animal activists from a nearby town took pity on her and decided to intervene.
They found her in the rubble behind the gas station.
When she was discovered on the pile of rubble, she couldn’t even walk and had great difficulty breathing. From that moment on they took care of her and transferred her to the Animal Protection Organization (OPA-MT).
She was given perhaps the first bath she has ever had in her life, and she really enjoyed the experience. She finally felt protected, she was not hungry for food, she had malnutrition of affection and care.
She gratefully enjoyed her first session of clean water falling on her body
Although she was evolving very well, they had to regulate her weight to ensure that she could continue to live healthy for many years, it was urgent that she lose those kilos that tormented her.
It was quite a challenge for the team that took care of her, but they took on the challenge of helping her, she had to exercise daily by walking to relieve the stress on her joints.
It was a very slow process, but it was worth it, with her new diet, exercises and especially the love that Bolinha received, in less than a year after being rescued she has lost more than 15 kilos so far, that is very favorable to her health.
In the next few days they plan to lose 15 more kilos to reach the proposed goal of the desired weight to contribute to their good physical condition.
It is impressive to see her transformation, there is no doubt that he will achieve the goal. With so much will and with the support of the rescue team who take care of her with all her love, she will reach the expected weight and health.
The truth is that now she is a happy and cute dog who smiles all the time. And best of all, she will be adopted by one of the activists who rescued her.
Bolinha’s weight loss battle and her “amazing” transformation are inspiring people around the world. We hope you spend your golden years in the comfort of your home, never again being the victim of laughter and neglect.
We are very proud of you, Bolinha!
It is one of those stories that outrages us because of its beginning, but that inspires us because of its emotional ending. That it serves so that humans are attentive to the nutrition of the puppies. They deserve attention and protection.
