FRIDA Happy Again!

Only three months ago we told you about the rescue of a dog named Frida after she had been found wandering on the street, covered in a terrible skin disease.

People were disgusted by her appearance and would throw stones and yell aggressively to keep her away. She became terrified of people and took shelter in an abandoned house. However, even her little shelter was taken away as the house was being demolished and Frida started roaming the streets more often. We went on several occasions to try and catch her but sadly, she was so terrified that despite our tempting her with food, she ran away.

We created shifts on daily basis next to the area where she lived to try and gain her trust. Even when we put food inside the cage, she would not enter. It was a hopeful sign for us when we met Isam, a kind man living in the area. =93I come everyday to feed the animals, she comes to me to get her share and leaves.” We had finally found someone Frida trusted and worked with Isam for the next few weeks to feed Frida daily and get her used to the trapping cage. Finally feeling the time was right, we met Isam on on site before he began his daily feeding.

As usual, Frida followed Isam while Maggie waited at the end of the street with the trapping cage prepared. Isam slowly walked her towards Maggie and to our surprise she entered without hesitation. Frida was so skinny and light that the door of the trapping cage didn’t automatically shut and Isam had to close the door behind her.

This poor dog suffered so much from illness, chronic discomfort of a skin disease covering her entire body, and the aggression and cruelty of people when she would search for food.

Now, only three months after being found in such a bad condition, Frida has transformed into a very beautiful and loving dog.  It took a lot of treatment and medication but she will never again have to struggle to survive on the streets or deal with the pain of disease and hunger.  Her skin disease has healed and in its place is a shiny coat of golden hair.

Frida is a young dog, only about a year old. She is quite happy and playful with other dogs and even cats. She is now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped and is ready to be adopted.  Open your home to this special dog – please email us at contact@animalslebanon.org and see just how special Frida is.
