A rescue organization called “Animal Aid Unlimited” received a call about a street dog who was trapped in a drum of tar in India.
When the team arrived at the scene, it appeared the dog had been encased in the tar for several days and appeared to be dead.Â
But, then they saw her breathing she was unable to move and was scared.Â Rescuers reported,Â âShe was completely glued by theÂ tar to the metal barrel.âÂ They realized they would have to cut the drum open in order to get her out.
TheyÂ covered the dog with a blanket to protect her and when they opened up theÂ drum, the dogâs body had sunk deep into the hot tar.
Rescuers couldnât get her out where they were, so they carried the dog in the drumÂ to Animal Aid.Â
The menÂ began to soak the rock solid tar in vegetable oil to soften it, although, even getting her out of the barrel was a huge challenge
Once the dog was out, they could see her burned skin.
She had been without water for so long, that she lapped up everything they gave her.Â It tookÂ rescuers three hours to remove the tar from her fur, and it was then that she was able to stand on her own.Â
They named her Asha, which means Hope in Hindi, and if youÂ saw her today, you wouldnâtÂ believe it.
