Knowing that there are dogs still being dumped and abandoned by people horrifies me. Although we already live in a society where animal cruelty is frowned upon, there are still people who do such atrocious acts. We have to remember that dogs are living creatures who have high intelligence and are also emotional beings.
In Puerto Rico, Dead Dog Beach is a known place for dumping or abandoning dogs. Countless dogs have been left to fend for themselves in Dead Dog Beach. Thankfully, an organization called The Sato Project operates in Dead Dog Beach, whose primary goal is to rescue strays and abandoned dogs and finding them a forever home.
One of the volunteers, Chrissy Beckles, experienced one of her most memorable rescues in Dead Dog Beach. While her group was looking for strays to rescue at Dead Dog Beach, her team stumbled upon a heavily pregnant dog that looks like she’s about to give birth within days. Chrissy’s team found the dog under a car.
They knew that the pregnant dog was recently dumped because it was the first time they saw the dog. The people who dumped the pregnant dog left her there without food or water. For Chrissy, it was a disgusting thing to do to such a gentle dog.
Even when the dog was pregnant, she wasn’t aggressive at all. Although the dog only met the rescuers, she trusted them enough to take her to the shelter. All Chrissy needed to do was show the dog the leash. The dog allowed her rescuers to put the leash on her without any problems.
Chrissy named the dog Luli after she was able to secure her and got her to safety. For Chrissy, it was one of the easiest rescues she ever made. Luli even allowed her rescuers to carry her to the car.
Luli eventually gave birth to a big litter while staying at the shelter. Luli was such an amazing mom. You could see it in Luli’s face that she’s so proud of her puppies and also relieved to have given birth around such beautiful people.
When the puppies weaned, they were eventually adopted and flew to New York City to meet their forever families. All the puppies grew up to be amazing and happy dogs with loving families. Of course, Luli wasn’t going to be left behind.
It so happened that Chrissy and her team were looking for the perfect family for Luli. They eventually found a new mom for Luli. Andrea Rosas fell in love with Luli the first time she saw her. Andrea applied to adopt Luli, and the team that rescued Luli couldn’t be happier for Andrea to be the new mom for Luli.
Luli was eventually given a new name after she was adopted. Andrea named her Pepita and she thrived when she arrived at her new home in New York. Luli, now called Pepita, was so excited about everything. She was a little scared to be in the kitchen, but she eventually found her perfect spot, which was the couch. Pepita loves to cuddle with Andrea and would often be found lying down next to her.
Pepita came a long way from a dog that nobody wanted to a dog living the happiest life with an amazing mom. It’s all thanks to Chrissy and the rest of her team that worked hard to give Pepita and her puppies a new life. Here’s a heartwarming and inspiring video that shows how a little humanity and love can go a very long way.
