Tania Cappelluti was on a rescue mission in Costa Rica to save a street dog she had once cared for. But instead of finding him, she came across another dog in even direr need of a savior. She was severely dehydrated and loaded with ticks and fleas. When Tania approached her, she fell to the ground, crying. Because of this woman, Gaia now lives in a wonderful home.
Beginning of last February I kept on seeing a beautiful cream colored stray dog on the streets down in the Osa Peninsula – he looked like a Labrador – very skinny though…. I couldn’t stop thinking about him, especially after I stopped once and gave him some water… he was so shy… there was no chance that I could have caught him.
It was a boiling hot Sunday…Seriously… it was unbearable…we drove and drove and couldn’t find the dog…
All of a sudden we saw this little black girl sitting on the side of the dusty road in the middle of nowhere!
When I jumped out of the car to check on her she immediately fell on the ground and started crying. She was covered in fleas and ticks and was extremely dehydrated. But the sweetest soul…
We gave her water and a bit of food. She could hardly hold herself up… Then we brought her to Finca Morpho who gave her a foster home and lots of love, food and flea drops. 🙂
Guys… Thank you so much for doing this. AMAZING! BLESS YOU!
And now… Gaia found an excellent home in Puerto Jimenez! She lives with a lovely lady from France in a beautiful cool house and already knows how to give high fives! YAY YAY YAY!!!
Stories like this make us soooo happy!
