Penny was only about 18 months old and living in squalor in an old trash pile.
She was starving and on the brink of death; someone had abandoned her and Penny quite literally had nothing.
Worse still, where she had been dumped was not directly on the main road, so her hopes of being found were slim.
Then one day, she heard a sound…
Two men were travelling by when their car suddenly broke down near Penny’s awful trash heap.
The men spotted the trash dump and then, they did a double-take: something had moved in the midst of that trash!
And there was little Penny, frightened, emaciated and very sick.
It was a definite blessing, as RSPCA inspector Rebecca Benson said:
“She wasn’t visible from the road and I hate to think what could have happened to her if they hadn’t broken down in the area and stumbled across her.
“She must have had a guardian angel looking out for her today.”
The Good Samaritans tried to get Penny to stand but she couldn’t because she was so sick.
So, knowing the poor pup needed immediate medical attention, the two men rushed her to the vet.
And when the vet saw Penny, he just couldn’t believe how much she had suffered!
She was so emaciated and dehydrated that she had to be kept on a drip the entire weekend.
But thankfully, Penny slowly gathered strength and was able to stand and and even go for short walks.
Months later, Penny is unrecognizable!
She’s a beautiful, happy dog, and even better, she has found her forever home!
This is exactly the sort of story that will brighten your day and it makes you wonder:
If God hadn’t stepped in and caused that car to break down, where would Penny be today…?
