Bella, a Belgian shepherd, almost drowned. The dog could have died if it had not been saved by a passerby
Briton Jane Harper during a walk in early 2020 found a dog that ended up in the river Tent. The woman came up and saw that a stone was attached to the neck of the unfortunate animal.
A huge boulder pulled the dog to the bottom. But Jane made it in time and pulled the drowning dog out of the water.
The drowned animal turned out to be a ten-year-old Belgian Shepherd. The dog looked emaciated. She couldn’t get up.
Harper contacted the local animal welfare society, where Bella was taken into care.
The irresponsible and cruel owner of Bella turned out to be Charlene Latham. She admitted that she tried to drown her pet. She only paid a fine of 80 pounds. At the trial, the 32-year-old girl said that her former roommate forced her to drown Bella. But there was no proof of this.
At first it was not easy: the dog refused almost any food. But at the same time she continued to fight for her life. In the summer, her condition began to improve. Bella began to eat more and gain weight.
