Starved, She Clung to Life, Tied to A Fence



When Orange Animal Control Officer Rudy Giordano was contacted to pick up a dog in distress, he found a pathetically helpless starving female pit bull tied to a fence near a vacant lot. It is not known how long she was there … she could have been starving in someone’s house or yard but clearly not at that location. It is believed she had at least one litter of pups and has been cast aside.

Rudy brought her to the Society’s veterinary department where she was immediately put on intravenous fluid and kept warm. With each staffer who approached, she looked up expectantly and gave a slight wag of her tail. There was a hope in her eyes: Is this someone who will want me, care about me and see that underneath, there is a heart that wants to be loved.

We call her Vida – which means life – her strong will to survive helped her to cheat death. She sees kindness in the people who tend to her daily needs and surround her. Vida gives kisses and waits for someone who will return the mountain of love she has stored in her heart. File N-78830-F (Newark-Med)

Vida is wonderful with kids, adults and other dogs. She would prefer to be in a home without cats. Although she doesn't actively seek them out ... she's a bit too interested in them when up close. If you could give Vida the loving home she deserves, please contact us.
