Dog Saved From Meat Truck Travels Across The World To Her New Family | The Dodo Adoption Day


Pearl was first
discovered in China on a meat truck.
She was missing her leg, and her skin was very bad. The rescuers from
Slaughterhouse Survivors brought Pearl to their hospital. They were not optimistic. She recovered a lot quicker
than anybody really thought. – Pearl, come here. Pearl. – Go, Pearl! After two months, Pearl was healthy enough to
fly to California, with the help from
Road Dogs and Rescue. When I first met Pearl
at the airport when she arrived, she was just really
chill and laid back. On our drive home, she just
fell asleep on my lap. – You got a new life ahead, huh? Pearl is a really relaxed dog. She’s just been so easygoing. I have three dogs of my own. I have two French bulldogs,
and I have a hound. There’s always concern when
you bring a foster dog in, how they’re going to
react to the other dogs. – Good boy, Gus. But it was a seamless
transition, really. I put her down. Everybody met her. Everybody got along
from the start. – What happened? Once I had her in my home for a day or two, I could tell she really
does struggle a bit to get around on
just the three legs. Her hips are not great. She’s so adaptable that she doesn’t let
it slow her down. But you can tell in
some of her movements that it definitely inhibits her. Because Pearl was my foster, I was pretty biased
reviewing adoption applications. So I needed somebody else to be
a part of the process with me. Cheryl is another volunteer,
so she helped in that process. Cheryl and I had a
really good feeling about Ashley’s application.
She’s a veterinarian. – I live in New York City, and I guess
I used to be a former crazy cat lady.
And now I’m transforming over to possible small crazy dog lady.
I actually wasn’t looking to adopt another dog,
but I came across Pearl. I just saw her face, and how it just looked like she
was completely broken at the time when they found her,
and realized she needed to be part of my little gang
here in New York. Cheryl lives in Pennsylvania. She and her husband decided to spend their anniversary
in California, and then drive back
some of our Road Dogs to the East Coast. And Pearl was the
first seat assigned. Whoa. I don’t think you can fit. She’s always been
very laid back, very easygoing. No anxiety with a
change of environment, which is why I’m not
worried about her. We will be traveling today,
and my passengers are Pearl and Leela and Teddy
and Cordelia. Our ultimate destination will be
Allentown, Pennsylvania. Pearl is the sweetest,
most chill dog ever. And we’re so excited
that she’s going to her forever home in New York
with her Mom, Ashley, who’s phenomenal. – Hey pretty Pearl. – Bye, guys. – Bye-bye. Say bye to Leah. She really will be fine. Her Mom’s gonna love her. She already loves her and
has never, never met her. I’m gonna miss her. But I know she has a great life
ahead of her. And I’m happy for her
at the same time. Where we going, Pearl?
Where we going? Here we are. Pearl’s
in Henderson, Nevada. Welcome, Pearl!
– Ready to jump out of the crate. Day two. Look! And there she goes! Road trip day three. We’re in Colorado,
heading for Kansas. Pearl’s up in the front,
riding shotgun. Right? And in the back, we
have Miss Cordelia. She’s sleeping. And we have Teddy, who’s not. Are you bringing the luggage in?
Hey, Leela! Here she comes. Pearl’s having a great time,
aren’t you, Pearl? She loves those French fries. We just arrived
at our last stop. So the pups were just fed. They’re out playing. [playful growls] We’re coming to Allentown. We’re almost home, Pearl. There we go. Today, Pearl’s new Mom, Ashley,
is coming from New York City to officially adopt her.
So we’re very excited to welcome Ashley. I have a couple of my friends
coming with me to drive to Allentown. – I have bagels! We’ve got some
snacks for the road. This is Claire.
– Hi! – Hi!
This is Tiffany. – Hi!
And this is Brawleigh. All right. So it’s starting. We’re on our way to
go pick up Pearl. I’m so excited to see, like,
her little personality, and all the things
that I’ve been hearing about her, about
how she’s playful but still very chill. Where’s your Momma?
Your Momma’s coming. I think Pearl deserves
the best life. She’s just a beautiful creature. – You ready?
– I am. It’s been a long time. – Here we go, Pearl.
– My gosh! – Here we go, Pearl.
– Hello, Pearl! Hello! – There we go.
– Oh my gosh. – There we go, Pearl.
– Oh my goodness! Hi! – There’s your Momma, Pearl.
– Hi, baby! – There’s your Momma!
– Hi. – There’s your Momma.
– She is so little. She was so chill,
and so comfortable in Ashley’s arms. – Pearl’s everything I
imagined she would be and even more.
And it’s just fantastic. And this is — yeah,
this is Leela. – Pearl’s going for a close-up. Everybody wants one, huh? I promise I’ll take
good care of her. I know. – I know this is the first time
I’m meeting her in person, but I feel like
with all the videos and all the pictures,
that I feel like I’ve known her for a very long time. – I believe Pearl has found her forever home,
and it was truly meant to be. All right, Pearl.
It’s time to go home. My heart melted when I saw her,
and I just wanted to be with her and hold her again, just to
kind of reassure her, like, this is it. Finally in
your permanent home. First time Pearl stepped onto
the New York City street, I think the smells
were overwhelming. She wanted to smell everything,
and explore everything. I think she’s gonna
fit in great here. Welcome home, Pearl! Yeah. So you’re excited, huh?
Excited to be in your new home. Let’s go. Come on. When I first brought Pearl into the apartment, she
went crazy smelling again, exploring everything. Hey, Janet. Hey. Want to meet your
new sister, Pearl? Hey, Pearl. Hey, Pearl. Hi. Look. Hey. Pearl and Janet met
for the first time. They were a bit hesitant, but I know
they’ll be good friends. She did end up finding her bed,
and she plopped right in it and fell asleep nicely.
I thought it was pretty cute that she knew exactly
that that was hers. I think she was hungry. I feel like I made
the right decision in adopting Pearl, because I
feel like her personality is very relaxed,
and so is Janet’s, and so am I. So I think we all complement
each other very well. For a longterm plan for Pearl, I plan on definitely
looking into a prosthetic, to seeing if that’s
best-suited for her, and also some rehab. Pearl came from a
pretty bad situation. And I think it’s a miracle
that she’s alive. And I think that she deserves the best life that she
can have going forward.

  1. Pearl needs a prosthetic leg, those are made for dogs, hope to hear she gets one, …….anyone watching please donate for that for Pearl.

  2. Hopefully she does find a prosthetic for her..those dogs already are prone to joint problems so imo it would be best to level her out. What a cutie.โ˜บ๏ธ

  3. Thank you to everyone involved saving her hopefully she gets a prosthetic or some sort of sock at least protect her skin in that area

  4. Tears. Thank you to the wonderful rescues, fosters, and her new mom for saving her and giving her a life full of happiness and love x

  5. Come on give me a break! meat truck? What were they going to do make a sandwich out of that little dog? I always watch this channel but I'm not buying this b*****

  6. Frenchies are hearty. I hope she can get a leg prosthetic. Poor baby. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  7. Please release a follow-up when Pearl gets her prosthetic. As much as she uses that leg without a paw a think she'd be an ideal candidate for a prosthetic. Bless you for saving this sweet creature!

  8. Just another reason we shouldn't be doing business with China. They don't just do this in secret. Everybody knows about it,there is even a festival for dog meat eating, but we just ignore it for cheap crap in our stores. There's no real organized protest against working with China,and I don't think there ever will be,cause Americans are lazy and greedy. So this will never end. God bless the Chinese who live there and are fighting this filth and rescuing cats and dogs and other animals, but its like trying to empty the ocean with an eyedropper. They really need our help, the world must stand up against this to them,for them to know it won't ve tolerated.

  9. i used to have 12 dogs
    2 got kidnapped (1 was a 8 months pup0
    the rest died after some years
    i had alot of trauma and i don't want raise another one

  10. Ive seen horrors in korea and china. They torture and hang dogs on hooks and skin them and slowly stab them while alive then cut off their paws while alive so the fear and terror can release adrenaline into the muscles in order to make their meat juicier. Ive seen them boil cats and chop up cats and skin them while alive. Youtube use to have some of these vids up back in the day. Unbeleivable horrors of what goes on over there

  11. You are all beautiful people. I was bawling watching this. Thank you I will become a monthly donor in a few days. Keep up gods work

  12. For years -decades I thought it was only a joke that Chinese food is made with dogs & cats .. Wasn't ย until I got online & found it to be true . Yes I think it is horrible how they cram the poor dogs into small cages on top of each other .. no food or water . Chop of there legs while they are alive . Cut open pregnant dogs & puppies fall to the floor . It's the most torturousย ย way I have seen someone harvest any type of animal to eat . No I do NOT like what they do to them . But they say it's their right – to eat what they like . Yes but not their right to treat the dogs in such an inhuman way !!ย  In thoseย horrible conditions . My father was a farmer & we loved , cared for each in everyone of our animals . NONE starved , or stayed in pain like these poor animals ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™

  13. Sorry, NOT! I think Pearl wants the lady that drove her back to Allentown! That woman is SUPPOSED to be her mom, not this young finicky millennial who will most likely give her up for a mean nonanimal lover guy because she needs a man to "validate" her!
    That is my take of her "fake" new "forever" home! I hope and pray that I am wrong! I got very bad vibes when the woman handing Pearl off to this chick and her "posse" of "friends" for "appearances" sake! FAKE AF is how I see this person who wound up with this precious baby girl pup, Pearl…
    Please Lady from Allentown, Please go to NY and get Pearl back! Pearl NEEDS you…

  14. I only clicked on like button as videos like this are necessary to bring attention to the plight of the sickening practice in China and other countries around the world. IDK what can be done to stop this in countries like China. It is absolutely disgusting !!! Thanks to all the people involved abroad and here in U.S. that do all they can to stop, rescue, foster, and adopt these dogs that truly are humans best friend and that makes it all the more horrifying.

  15. I get the gesture, I do. But be careful bringing dogs across seas. There are places that have a new strain of dog distemper from bringing dogs overseas from Asia.

  16. I don't understand how China thinks there's any meat to be gained off these poor dogs to begin with, let alone after they starve them and shove them in crates. Lesser evolved people.

  17. There was a TV program where a reporter want to do a story on what it was like to be on death row! So the warden had an idea! Switch his number on wash day with that of a condemned man! The reporter kept telling them this isn't my number they just laughed and said yeah that's what they all say! The reporter was at his whitts end. They took it all the way to the electric chair but didn't throw the switch! Asked the reporter well how does it feel to be a condemned man? No reply! So they hurried and removed the face cover from him, his eyes and mouth were wide open like he had seen satin himself and he was DEAD he had a heart atteck! People that do horrible things should have to experience horrible things themselves! In Jesus Name! Amen!

  18. Pearl is awesome!!! She doesnโ€™t let anything get her down. She has such a zest for life. Those ears, and that cute little tail! Her journey has been amazing. I am so happy that she has found her forever home.

  19. Awww, happy that this pup had a happy ending. This cruel practice needs to stop. Why did they chop off the tip of her little feet? Thereโ€™s only a cruel answer to that.

  20. A meat truck???ย  How disgusting the Asian cultures are.ย  They do not value any form of life and will eat anything.ย  Let's remember the live dog roasting festival held on the streets of Korea every hear.ย  Barbaric savages….oh and BTWย  the leaders in black market exotic animal trade.

  21. Dogs with disabilities always look so cute and happy. I love it when they have such loving owner! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

  22. I think dog and horse slaughter are worst, they get treated so badly! All animals have feelings, and they probably get treated the same way, but I kinda feel like horses and dogs always get treated SO badly! Idk…I just saw this video of horse slaughter, and omg it was so disgusting! I ride irl, so I love horses. โค๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜•

  23. people paying $2k for an inbred French Bulldog in the States, while this evil is going on with dogs. Shameful all around.

  24. I'd be (sort of) fine with Chinese people eating dogs if they didn't literally torture them before slaughter. Say what you want about the meat industry but at least they don't set out to make the deaths of cows as painful as possible, claiming it makes the meat taste better.

  25. What a heartwarming story beginning to end.Thank you for making sure your rescue dogs are fit with the right forever family.Much love Pam

  26. And all that to a French Bulldog worth anywhere from $1500-$3000 they were better off selling it to someone that will care for it

  27. Some of you here have to wake up and condemn China for doing this. They also will tie up all four of a Golden Retrievers paws and strip them of their fur while they're still alive and screaming in pain. Before some videos were removed off of YouTube I saw a video and had to turn it off due to throwing up. China and Africa are our offenders of animal torture. Also in other countries like Iran they'll cleanse (shoot) their country of dogs because dogs are not clean according to their creator.

  28. I get the need for rescue. I just don't get why some rescues make it so hard to adopt. It's already easier and cheaper most times to buy from backyard breeders. If you want to encourage more people to adopt, perhaps you shouldn't make people jump through quite so many hoops.

  29. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

  30. This whole comment section is just a war between meat eaters and vegans. I'm a meat eater and I love seeing vegans raging over meat lmao

  31. Wait, don't the Chinese always whine about how the Japanese mistreated them, tortured them and treated them like s***? Guess they didn't learn anything from that. Just thought that treatment would have invoked a sense of empathy and compassion on that proud nation.

  32. The chinese as a societal culture are cruel disgusting sociopaths who take joy in torturing animals to death because they think it makes the meat taste better. Learn how to season food you sick fucks. The chinese will steal and torture your dog for a snack. I hope they all catch y. pestis and burn.
