Heavily Scarred Dog Can’t Let Go Of Rescuer - Nature Knows

Heavily Scarred Dog Can’t Let Go Of Rescuer




Natalie Oliveri, the President of Furever Bully Love Rescue in Orlando, found Harper the dog in Redland, Florida.

The Redlands are known for being a dumping ground for unwanted dogs, but Harper was a little different.

She had heavy scarring on her back and head and was clearly abused and timid.

Every day an organization called Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dog Project, takes food out to The Redlands to feed the strays that are dumped there.

They bring in roughly 350 pounds of food to feed the 100 or so dogs that roam in that area. Jessie Pena from Redland Rock Pit, says thousands of stray dogs roam the vast area of The Redlands.

Harper had been living on The Redlands for several months until one day she approached a group of volunteers with a few other dogs.

Harper looked up at the volunteers and immediately laid prone submissively out of fear.

When Natalie saw all the scars on Harper’s body and decided she had to take Harper out of there!

Harper was taken to the vet and was found to have worms, a tooth infection, and anemia. Anemia is a condition where the body doesn't have enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to the body and organs and leaves one feeling tired and weak.

The physical wounds and conditions were an easy fix for the vet, but the psychological damage would take kindness and patience to overcome.

Natalie said Harper didn’t do much for the first three days, likely because of the anemia and fear.

You may have expected her to be afraid of people, but when she found a kind human, she didn't want to let go.

Harper is safe now and has a long life and a bright future ahead of her. We are so thankful for organizations like Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dog Project and Furever Bully Love Rescue for feeding, saving and protecting dogs like Harper every day!
