Pic show: Campa, the saved puppy. A pit-bull has won the hearts of many netizens after it rescued a puppy that had been tied up and thrown away in a rubbish dump inside a plastic bag. The moving tale occurred in the city of Almeria, in the southeast Spanish region of Andalusia. The heroine is called Meca, a rescue dog that lives in an animal shelter and was at that moment in time having her photo taken to find adoptive parents when she caught the scent of the trapped puppy. Her carers at the shelter described how Meca began to pull on her lead and led them to the site of a rubbish dump and to a bundle wrapped in a plastic bag which turned out to be a live puppy. The little dog had its legs and nose tied up to stop it escaping or barking and had been put in a plastic bag. But none of these methods could overcome the sensitive smell of another dog, who saved the pup from certain death. The little pup, which has been named ‘Campa’ was taken in by the shelter workers. They said: "We don’t even want to imagine what would have happened if Meca had not found her. She was very hungry and thirsty, but she is ok." More good news is that since the story has been shared, both the pup and her saviour have received various offers for adoption from people who saw it online. The pup Meca was not only abandoned by her owner, but when the shelter found her she was very thin, her ears had been cut and she was covered in burns. The authorities have asked for any information from the public as to who might be responsible for throwing away the puppy. (ends)
