Starved Puppy Makes Miraculous Recovery

Animal rescue workers have seen it all, but every now and then they encounter a case that shocks even the most seasoned professionals. Eduardo Rodriguez had been rescuing dogs since childhood when he came across an animal in a state he’d never seen before. A starving puppy, barely weighing 16 pounds, was brought into the animal care center he owned in Granada, Spain.
When Eduardo laid eyes on the poor animal, he knew they had to act quickly or she may not survive another night.

Eduardo Rodriguez, owner of an animal care center in Granada, Spain, took in a starved 10-month-old puppy who was in such an unhealthy state that volunteers didn’t think she would make it.
Weighing a mere 16 pounds, the puppy was so starved for nutrients, she was placed on a drip before the workers could even begin to feed her.


With no muscle tone and barely enough energy to lift her head, it’s likely the puppy had been starved and confined to a cage since birth.

Despite vets’ concerns that the little dog was too far gone, Eduardo named her Spaghetti and refused to give up on her. He knew that an immediate plan of action was necessary to save her life.

As she fought for her life, Spaghetti could only wag her tail, but Eduardo continued her drip and never gave up hope.

After a few days, little Spaghetti overcame the risk of organ failure and starvation and regained her strength. Finally, Spaghetti was strong enough to take a few laps from her water bowl while standing up.

Spaghetti still had a long way to go in the fight for her life.

Slowly but surely, she gained enough weight to eat normal food.

Spaghetti was soon able to eat five to six meals a day, and her appetite appeared to be returning.

Eventually, Spaghetti reached a healthy weight, all thanks to Eduardo and the loving staff at the animal care center.
