A group of children were playing outside when they suddenly heard many frantic dog barks.
Curious, they followed the sounds. And what they discovered was a scene of absolute horror.
Tar pit nightmare
A dog had been covered in thick black tar and was stuck under it. Other strays had gathered around the poor victim, barking to get someone’s attention.
The children immediately knew they had to help. They called the volunteer fire brigade, who, in turn, contacted the Proyecto 4 Patas rescue. Together, they worked endlessly to release the dog from its tar prison.
Incredible dog rescue
Nine hours and 50 litres of oil later, their commitment paid off. The dog was finally saved.
At the shelter, the dog was shaved, bathed, and made a full recovery. When all the tar was removed, she was revealed to be a beautiful shepherd dog!
And with a heart of gold too – despite everything she’d been through! A second birth for an incredibly deserving dog!
