Tania Cappelluti was driving across Costa Rica looking for a stray dog when she came across a dog that was in desperate need of help.
Tania wrote on her rescue’s Facebook page, “It was a scorching Sunday, it was unbearable, we drove and drove and couldn’t find the puppy.”
“All of a sudden, we came across this tiny black girl sitting in the middle of nowhere on the side of a dusty road!” When Tania approached with water, the dog was so relieved that she slumped to the ground and sobbed.
“As I jumped out of the car to check on her, she immediately fell to the ground and began crying,” Tania explained. “She was infested with fleas and lice, and she was severely dehydrated.” It is, however, the sweetest soul.
“We offered her food and beverages. She was on the verge of collapsing.” Tania is a yoga instructor who also runs the dog rescue Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue.
She posted pictures of her puppy, Gaia, on Facebook. She immediately contacted other animal rescuers across the country after rescuing Gaia, and Gaia was placed in a foster home. Soon after, she was adopted by a Costa Rican woman.
In Puerto Jimenez, Gaia found a good home. She already knows how to give high fives and lives in a great cool house with a lovely lady from France! This is such a touching story.
