Pearl, an adorable rescue dog in China, would have suffered a sad fate if not for the intervention of an organization called Slaughterhouse Survivors. Today, Pearl’s life has taken a 360-degree turn as she travels from China to a foster home in California, and finally, to her fur-ever home in New York.
Pearl’s life in Harbin
A lot of street dogs in China come face to face with the sad reality of dog meat trading. While there had been a lot of opposition regarding the horrific practice, the truth is, meat trading persists until this very day.
Pearl is one of the dogs rescued in Harbin, China, from the horrible dog meat trading practice. Fortunately, Pearl was spared. The pooch owes her life to three expats, Hayley, Emily, and Aimee. These women worked together in saving dogs from meat trading and eventually helped the rescued dogs get adopted into their forever homes elsewhere.
Pearl was in terrible shape when the Slaughterhouse Survivors found her. She had an awful skin condition and had one of her limbs missing. Pearl looked so pitiful in her condition, and the organization wasn’t even sure if the dog will even make it alive.
But Pearl showed strong determination. Despite her horrible past, Pearl wanted to have a good life, so she fought her condition until she got better and healthier. The rescuers gave Pearl all the TLC she needed, and two months later, the dog was in great shape for adoption.
With the help of Road Dogs and Rescue, Pearl was off to live her new life in the US. She was flown to California and lived with a foster family. While there, Pearl showed how amusing, playful, and lovable she can be. She may have one limb missing, but that didn’t hinder her from showing her real personality.
After a few months, Road Dogs and Rescue eventually found a forever home for Pearl in New York. The crew drove Pearl to her new parent, who is also a veterinarian. It just seemed to be the perfect match, given Pearl’s condition.
Now, Pearl has settled in her new home with her mom, Ashley, along with another dog, Janet. Ashley fell in love with Pearl straight away. Ashley also made sure that gets the treatment Pearl needs. She’s even contemplating about getting the dog an artificial limb!
Dogs like Pearl may have suffered from a terrible past, but when you give them love, they’ll love you back just as passionately and fiercely. And thanks to the people who rescue dogs from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. All dogs deserve love, respect, and kindness.
