MEET THIS GORGEOUS GIRL NAMED "DOLLY" 


Check out Susanna and her amazing story below!

https://wsvn.com/news/local/rottweiler-rescued-after-being-found-in-sw-miami-dade-dumpster/

Sometimes inspiration comes from the rawest form of our emotions; this is one of those times.

It has been hot in South Florida for the last month. People, as usual, are busy taking care of their lives, and it seemed like a once majestic creature was destined to die anonymously and alone.

We can't even begin to imagine the pain and suffering she has been through--she has been discarded like a piece of garbage, she is lying in a dump among the debris, pieces of trash, decomposed food, dirt, pieces of wood, plastic cups, styrofoam, and metal. Her weak, fragile and exhausted body is about to give up. What has she done to deserve this finality? Many days have passed since she had a meal or even clean water to drink. Hiding from people, not knowing who can she trust. Last time she trusted a human, that human abused that trust, didn't feed her, didn't pet her or offer a clean piece of cloth where she can rest at night, hiding like she was ashamed the condition she was in. The only one who needs to be ashamed is the human who put her in such a situation, fending for herself in the most inhospitable place.

Her heart was broken, but deep inside of her, still remained a very small spark of hope--that someone could hear her painful call for help and come to help her. She loses consciousness and when she awoke, she felt a warm voice accompanied by a soft touch: this lady named Isabel Zapata was called by a good samaritan and alerted her about a Rottweiler in desperate need of help. With no hesitation, Isabel left what she was doing and ran to this poor soul's help.

The dog with the very last amount of strength she had, opened her eyes--the only part of her body still able to move; not even her tail can wag, she is so tired of fighting for survival by herself. Can she trust this group of people again?

Isabel kept telling her to "hang on there baby", "we are taking you to a doctor, baby ", "you are beautiful", "everything is going to be alright". She hears voices of more people coordinating efforts to help her, they hurry to make arrangements to transport her; but who can be ever prepared to find a pet in such bad shape?

What is it, an angel? A soul that has departed? Or a being that watches over those who are in need? Do they live in heaven or do they walk among us? Who knows, but if Isabel and her friends are not angels, they are very close to becoming angels. They patrol day in and out the Redlands in South Florida, saving dogs, cats, puppies, kittens of all breeds, that have also been discarded like Susanna was; not because there was something wrong with them, but because a human failed them; failed to give them proper training, proper food, proper vet care, proper housing, failed them to spend time with them, they were failed in some many ways by selfish humans.

In order to save Susanna (the name Isabel gave her, after one of the ladies who helped with rescuing her) and not Bob, when she realized Susanna was a girl, not a boy. The angels reached Avocado Animal Hospital, the closest veterinary clinic where she can have treatment. But Isabel knows that in order to provide Susanna, a real fighting chance, she has to reach to an organization whose mission is to save Rottweilers. She called Yolanda Ramirez of Gulfstream Guardian Angels Rottweiler Rescue.

Susanna spent a night at Avocado Animal Hospital and was stabilized, then she was transported to Mueller Animal Hospital in Hialeah, where GGARR provides vet care to most of its rescues. And she met a new angel. A petite, tender and loving lady--her name is Yolanda or Yoly to those who have had the honor of meeting her. Yoly and her longtime friend Grace Acosta founded GGARR in 2002, saving the lives of perhaps thousands of Rottweilers, who, like Susanna, needed a second chance in life. Yoly approached Susanna and with delicate and warm hands, pet her torso. Yoly's heart wrinkled and from her eyes, tears started to flow. This woman who has seen so many dogs in need, cannot comprehend how someone can be capable of such an act of cruelty and disregard for the life of a living being. She whispered into Susanna's ear, "We are going to take care of you, Mama," "we are going to do everything in our power to save you." And as if the soul of Susanna and Yoly where talking through unknown connection, Susanna started to lick Yoly's hands.

Susanna is the latest rescue of GGARR in 2018. Prior to her, the rescue has taken back to back Miles, a young Rottweiler, who was hit by a car and required intensive care and surgeries; Jax an 11-month-old Rottweiler that was shot six times by his previous owner's neighbor. Jax was at risk of not walking at all. Today he is not only keeping his four legs, but he also has regained almost 100% function and mobility of all his legs. Not even a week after taking Jax, the rescue took in Jada, an 8-month old female from Hillsborough County, who was also shot in one of her front legs. Jada too requires intense and expensive vet care.

But these are not the only dogs GGARR is currently helping; they are only the most recent cases which have contributed to GGARR's dire need for funds.

My name is Diana Alcazar, and I can attest that every single penny you donate to GGARR goes directly to the care of all the dogs they have under their care. I ask you today, to please reach out to your heart and help this amazing organization to continue helping dogs like Susanna.
