Rescuer Refuses To Give Up On Garbage Dump Dog

Welcome to your Monday "Oh My Dog" rescue story. Today, I bring you a bit of heartache, but not without a smile and a happy ending. This story truly shows the love and determination that comes from animal rescuers all over the world.

This is the story of Emma, the garbage dump dog.

It was just by some slim chance, that dog rescue worker, Tsvetelina Vrancheva, happened to spot a stray dog, lounging around in a pile of garbage, in the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. As Tsvetelina crawled on her hands and knees through rotten meat and other disgusting garbage waste, she kept pushing on, making her way towards the terrified dog.

However, that day, was not the day Emma, the stray dog was to be saved...

Unfortunately, the scared dog was reluctant to let any humans anywhere near her.
She curled into a corner, shaking and growling at Vrancheva. She knew that in order to save this dog, she would need a trap, to safely apprehend her. After a lot of patience, and determination, finally, on the third night of waiting by a well baited trap, Vrancheva heard the clang of the cage, and knew she had Emma. According to Laura Simpson from care2.com - "you would have thought the world stopped for a second. Emma could barely breath, and neither could Tsvetelina."

Tsvetelina Vrancheva, then turned to none other than social media. As a woman who runs a rescue with over 50 dogs, paying the bills for Emma (the dog from the garbage pile) was a little bit out of reach, and she needed help. Unfortunately, donations did not come pouring in. What was left to do? Give up? Oh hell no! Vrancheva was not giving up on Emma. She turned to Harmony Fund

She wrote to Harmony Fund when there was just no where else to turn. She was losing hope, but knew she had to do something. Harmony Fund had worked with Vrancheva in the past, helping her turn a grassy area into a rescue for former street dogs. Finally, help had arrived! Within an hour, funds started coming her way, and Emma was treated for mange and Ehrlichia. 

Whats next for Emma?

Now that she has been treated, the long journey of learning to trust humans, and accepting love is what the future holds for Emma. But, as you will see from the photo below, I don't think she's too far off!

We here at Love Is Being Owned By A Husky would like to personally thank rescuer Tsvetelina Vrancheva for her hard work and dedication to animals. We wish Emma all the best, and hope that she finds her perfect forever home in the near future.

    1. I hope so too, and I think she will be. She has already learned to accept the rescuers love, and comforting pets, so I think she'll be just fine :)
