Every homeless puppy eagerly awaits the opportunity to change their life, one in which they can live with dignity and be given a lot of love and pampering, reminding them of how special they are. Just as it happened to a defenseless dog in Costa Rica. The dog was waiting to be rescued from the streets. If the roads of the world could talk, they would tell the stories of hundreds of homeless animals that roam them, hoping they will help them improve their quality of life.
Tania Cappelluti lives in Costa Rica and is the founder of an organization in favor of animals called, Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue. He was driving his car when he noticed the presence of a dog that was fainting under the intense sun. Without thinking, he left everything and got out of his vehicle so he could help the poor dog, giving her some water and food. However, that gesture of friendship was something completely new for the dog. She was too shy and used to being ignored so she did not accept the water.
That was the first approach between Tania and the dog. The rescuer was not willing to let her continue to suffer. So he got into his car to return with the help of members of other associations and animal shelters. “We decided to go find her again, this time with the help of Olivia and Blendan. Janina from Osa Peninsula Rescue & Adoptions told me that I could take her to Finca Morpho, to a temporary home, ”said Tania. Back on the road, Tania and her friends got out of the vehicle and were received by the dog in the most emotional way.
This time, the dog understood that there are still good people, and that they were there to help her and that made her cry with joy and gratitude. “When I jumped out of the car to see how she was doing, she immediately fell to the ground and started crying,” the rescuer recalled. The rescuers were very moved by Gaia’s reaction, so they called her affectionately. She was in urgent need of help, was very underweight, terribly dehydrated, and had many fleas and ticks. The innocent dog was so exhausted that it could not stand. But his situation did not affect his kind soul that is eager to receive and give love.
Some care and pampering were enough for her to achieve a radical transformation. “She was so sweet and gentle that we all fell in love with her immediately,” Tania noted. All the love received made the little girl regain the shine in her eyes and skin. She was ready to find a permanent home, so they moved her to a beautiful farm until they found her a good human willing to take care of her forever. Luckily, a good French woman was touched by the story of Gaia and decided to adopt it to repay her with much love. Now she lives in the Puerto Jiménez region, enjoys living in a huge house and has even learned amazing tricks.
Her new human mother is named Johanne Froment and she has two loving feline brothers, Tigré and Sacha, with whom she loves to walk in the paradisiacal silvers of the Central American country. Johanne is fascinated by the dog’s beautiful friendly personality. Gaia loves to play and to be hugs and kisses, and now she has a mom willing to fill her with all the love she wants.
