The other day in Medellín, Colombia, a woman named Christina Farley was on her way to the local grocery store when she noticed a dog standing in front of the entrance. While it initially seemed like a typical sight given the store’s designated area for pets to be parked outside, this particular dog appeared uneasy and didn’t have a leash or collar. The animal remained motionless, fixated on the street ahead.
Initially, Farley was concerned that the dog was too frightened to allow anyone to touch her. Therefore, she approached the dog from a distance and then went inside. Later, when she left the store, she came across a Good Samaritan who was petting the dog. However, Farley noticed that the dog was unresponsive and wasn’t moving, despite allowing people to pet her. This caused Farley to worry even more. For over two hours, Farley stayed with the pooch as shoppers and employees continued to come and go from the store. Everyone who entered stopped to greet the dog, but no one knew where she had come from.
According to Farley, they began to suspect that the dog had been abandoned in that location. They took it upon themselves to leave some food and water for the poor creature, but to their dismay, she wouldn’t even come near it. They tried to coax her with various methods, but she just stood there, too scared to move. The group of compassionate citizens did everything they could to find a shelter for the animal, but to no avail. Despite their best efforts, the dog remained petrified and had nowhere to go.
Eventually, a young lady passed by and upon hearing the dog’s story, she offered to temporarily foster her. Although the fosterer couldn’t provide a long-term shelter, she would take care of the dog while they looked for a forever home. However, there was a problem – the dog refused to move. Fortunately, another woman who overheard their conversation offered help by transferring her dog’s harness to the stray pup. As soon as the harness was placed around her neck, the abandoned dog’s disposition completely changed. Her tail started wagging, and she immediately walked with them. This reaction was proof that the dog was previously someone’s pet. The rescuers decided to bring the dog to a local dog park to see if anyone could recognize her but unfortunately, no one knew her. Princesa was then brought to her new foster home where she played excitedly until bedtime. After a few days, the kind-hearted foster mom discovered the ideal permanent home for Princesa. Now, she is living happily in the Colombian countryside, surrounded by a loving family in a wide-open country farmhouse. She finally found a family again, running around her spacious home every day, living her best life, and happier than ever.
