One day, Dimitra, a woman who lived in Belgrade, Serbia, was walking through
a cemetery when she heard a cry in the distance. At first, she couldn’t tell
where the sound came from or what it belonged to. After a short while she heard
the sound again.
Being a curious person, she decided to check out where the sound was coming from. As she made her way around the cemetery, the Dimitra noticed a large hole dug under one of the grave stones with a little dirt in it.
On closer inspection, she found that it was actually a frightened dog. The poor canine must have dug the hole and laid down underneath it. Immediately when the dog saw Dimitra, it became terrified and began to shrink itself further into the hole.
Its no secret that dogs are incredibly loyal and will do anything to make their owner happy. Dogs have also been known to mourn their owners for days on end after they pass on. But this situation that Dimitra was a witness to, did not look like the case.
Determined to get the poor animal to come out of the hole and away from the cemetery, Dimitra tried whistling and persuading it but the dog was not moving. She couldn’t tell if the dog had even eaten or had a drink in a while.
A short while later, the canine got curious and came out for a split second but quickly went back to the hole like it was hiding something valuable.
As the dog moved, Dimitra managed to look inside the hole and couldn’t
believe what she was saw! Inside the hole lay 4 tiny puppies! The mama pup had dug
up the hole underneath a gravestone to make sure her babies were safe and well taken
An Imgur post from Faketoupet, read, “You can see the den [she] created and just how compact it was. While it wasn’t ideal, it was the best she could find. The puppies were clearly struggling to survive, so Dimitra gave them a bit of dog food. The puppies were very frail and were lucky to have been found.”
Soon afterwards, the dog wasn’t afraid of Dimitra anymore and even allowed
her to pet her. Dimitra knew that she couldn’t leave them by themselves and had
to help this sweet family and she had to do that fast.
She took out her phone and called Vesna Mihajloski, the one person she was sure would help the poor dogs. Mihajloski gladly took all of the dogs in.
Finally, the family had a safe place to rest with warm beds, water and plenty
of food. The mama dog who looked thoroughly exhausted also got to fall asleep
and get some much needed rest.
Thanks to Dimitra, the animals were going to have a chance at life. While
this family got a happy ending, its sad to point out that not all dogs out
there are lucky enough to have a place to call home. For this reason, it is of
much importance that people would make the choice to adopt dogs from shelters instead of breeders
