When Mila arrived at the RSPCA ACT she was extremely emaciated, every bone in her body was visible and her face was sunken. She had completely shut down.
Mila is a large breed dog but weighed just 18.5 kilograms and was terrified of everyone and everything. After a vet’s inspection it was evident she had starved.
Mila was slowly introduced onto small meals and gradually evolved to an adult diet. She was resocialised slowly – first by just one or two staff members, eventually Mila began to trust other staff and volunteers.
After several months of rehabilitation Mila blossomed into the beautiful animal she had once been and weighed a healthy 36.5 kilograms when she was adopted by her Guardian Angels.
