    For years guard dog Cala was tied to a chain. The chain was so short she couldn’t rest her head or even breathe correctly.

    Thankfully, neighbors reported the inhumane conditions to police and the dog shelter Territorio de Zaguates. Cala was rescued and taken into care

    When she was rescued Cala was so malnourished she couldn’t even stand and was covered with wounds and gashes from being chained up

    Her health was so poor that if Cala hadn’t been found when she was she would have died

    The road to recovery wasn't an easy one for the pup. It was a very long and painful journey.

    In addition to the pain, she was very mistrusting of other dogs and humans. Making it more difficult to treat her.

    However, even with the smile of pure happiness, Cala learned once again how evil and cruel some humans can be...

    Some inhumane people snuck into the sanctuary in an attempt to poison the dogs with tainted sausages

    Tragically 16 dogs were killed, but Cala managed to survive only suffering from some brief neurological problems

    Lya Battle, the founder of Territorio de Zaguates, told the Dodo that she survived due too her size and because she was “Just too tough a cookie!”

    Today Cala is living her best life in a new home. “She is happy, strong, willful, a bit stubborn, and spoiled by her foster mom and family,” reported Battle
