The dog was tied to a rock by the owner and thrown into the river, fortunately he was saved in time

Bella is a loving German shepherd puppy who, in January of last year, came dangerously close to drowning in the River Trent at Long Lane in Farndon, England, where her former family had abandoned her. The dog, terrified and helpless, was discovered fastened to a water-submerged rock. Bella struggled to survive for many hours.

Thankfully, two female dog walkers called Jane Harper and Joanne Bellamy happened to be nearby and heard the canine’s cries for help.

Bella was immediately transported to a veterinarian for emergency care after being rescued. She was then transported to the RSPCA rescue facility when they were able to stabilize her.

Bella managed to live with a rock around her neck and some ice water, but the emergency trip to the vet also revealed that she had a few additional health difficulties to contend with. The road to his recovery was only getting started.

Staff at Nottingham’s Radcliffe Animal Center provided care for Bella. The police and charity were also looking for the perpetrator of the heinous acts that the little girl had to undergo.

After pleading guilty to giving her cat needless suffering, Charlene Latham, 32, received a 12-month community order last month.

Charlene, who is currently residing in Devon, told the court that she pleaded with her ex-partner Leigh Johnson, 33, not to harm the dog. Johnson, who also disputed the accusations, never asked for assistance, and the RSPCA claimed it lacked sufficient proof to bring charges against Johnson.

Nottingham Magistrates Court sentenced the lady £80 and further ordered her to pay the victim £200 in fees and extras. Additionally, she was prohibited from owning pets for three years.

The adorable puppy has spent the last 15 months in the care of the RSPCA, where she made a full recovery and was able to find a permanent home. Maggie Mellish and Charlie Douglas, a retired couple, are Bella’s new parents and provide all the affection Bella needs.

They are the ideal fit for Bella, who is 11 years old, and they reside in a lovely community in South Derbyshire. They are willing to offer her the affection that she so beautifully needs because they have previously owned other dogs.
