Our lovable protagonist is Dice, a puppy locked in a cage to die in the slowest and saddest way possible. He was found in the yard of an abandoned apartment in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Fortunately, some children saw it and informed the police, from which point the change to the Dice began.
Officers called Animal Control and they took responsibility for the puppy.
When they found him his state of health was quite delicate, he was literally bare bones. Tracey Godin, co-founder of Feeling Fine Rescue, says that when the police arrived at the scene, she asked the children how long the puppy had been there, to which they replied that it had been a week or more.
Although he did not spend much time in the cage, the conditions in which the puppy was kept gave indications that he was treated indifferently.
“He was not fed properly for months. The last week would have been the final deterioration,” Tracey said.
Tracey comments that she learned about the puppy through some photos sent to her by a friend who works at the shelter, she and her daughter quickly went to Dice and took him to a veterinarian. The helpless little dog couldn’t even support his own weight, she points out that he was half his ideal weight, his eyes were sunken into his head, and he was very dehydrated and anemic . It is possible that he could not have resisted another day locked up.
After receiving medical attention, the puppy was transferred to Feelin Fine Rescue.
With a lot of patience, but above all love and dedication, Dice was recovering energy and gaining weight. Every week she gained 4 kilos, so after a month she gained more than 20 kilos . The puppy changed not only physically but emotionally, despite everything she went through she trusted people again. She has proven to be the most grateful and loving puppy in the world.
Dice managed to find the ideal family.
The puppy was up for adoption, so it didn’t take long for a family to take an interest in him. The connection with his new parents was incredible, two children and two other dogs would make up Dice’s beautiful family . All puppies have their stories and their processes are different, but Dice broke the record in recovering him, his rescuers affirm that he is undoubtedly a true miracle.
Dice’s will to live and her inner strength helped her recovery.
