Dogs are loyal to their owners, no matter what. They love their owners and would do anything for them. But some of us fail to recognize their preciousness and commit the crime of treating them anything less than they deserve to be treated. Carla was one of these unfortunate dogs.

Residents of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania spotted Carla sitting in the snow, waiting for her family to come back to her and take her back to her warm house. Little did she know that she was abandoned by them and they would never return to her.

The concerned people contacted a rescuer named Janine Guido, the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue.

Guido immediately set off to rescue Carla and was heartbroken to see Carla full of hopes to see her family. Then, Guido posted a post about Carla on her rescue’s Facebook page in which she mentioned that Carla had been waiting for five full days.

Guido accompanied Carla for three days, hand- feeding her, which she thankfully accepted. However, when she tried to put a leash on her, Carla ran away.

She also said that a number of people attempted to catch Carla but failed because she was too scared. So, Guido encouraged whoever saw Carla to keep from feeding, chasing or trying to catch her.

A few days later, someone called Guido informing that Carla was on someone’s back porch but ran away.

Someone informed Carla shortly after that she was back at the same porch again and Guido didn’t waste a minute to go rescue her.

Guido struggled for a few more days before finally being able to rescue Carla. She then immediately took Carla to the vet, where she discovered that she was probably a sheltie mix and around 10 years of age.

Carla was also underweight and infested with fleas, along with minor frostbite on her paws and possible arthritis.

Then, before she gave up herself to sleep, she ate some nice food and got a nice warm bath.

Now, Carla is in her foster home for recovery. As soon as she recovers fully, she will be put up for adoption.

Meanwhile, Carla is having a great time in her foster home. She enjoys going for walks with the rest of her foster siblings.
