A stray dog will always ardently wait to be fed by passersby. But of course, she never imagines that her desperation for food leads her to become the mockery of many.
Her name is Bolinha, and she was abandoned at a gas station a long way down a rural road in western Brazil.
She had been living on the streets in the midst of misery for several years, surviving among the drivers who stopped to refuel. Many people, instead of caring about her health, looked at her with indifference, and barely fed her with leftovers from the cafeteria.
The unhealthy diet ended up affecting the 9-year-old dog to such proportions that she gradually reached worrying morbid obesity. Sadly, no one was careful about her diet.
At this point, many locals only came to the place to meet the famous “ball dog”, but no one bothered to get her help.
Bolinha became something of a “local attraction”, being very conspicuous because of his weight. What made many burst out laughing as soon as they saw it and dedicated themselves to taking photos of it to spread them on the networks.
In addition, his state of health was not adequate at all. The poor girl longed for love very much.
One day, the dog, heartbroken from so much teasing, crawled into a junkyard and stopped moving altogether.
It was then that some animal activists from a nearby town took pity on her and decided to intervene.
They gave her perhaps the first bath she’s ever had, and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience. She finally felt protected, she was not hungry for food, she was malnourished for affection and affection.
Although he was doing very well, they had to regulate his weight to ensure that he could continue to live healthy for many years.
