Jhonny Alquinta and his son were driving off-road in the desert in Antofagasta, Chile, when they saw a dog struggling in a tar pit. They immediately called for help from a nearby shelter.

While waiting for reinforcements, the two were able to pull the dog from the tar before it swallowed her whole. They quickly noticed that this was no accident–somebody had put this poor pup in a sack and tossed her in.

Even though they were able to clean her off, she was still in poor shape. Thankfully, both her kidneys and liver are fine, but she has a bacterial infection. For now, she’s receiving antibiotics, and, most importantly, eating to her tummy’s desire!
