Despite their relief at finding the pup unharmed, the rescuers were deeply saddened by the cruelty she had endured. They were particularly moved by the intense heat inside the dumpster, expressing gratitude that Malea had not suffered any ill effects.

Lochmann, showing compassion and care, gently lifted Malea from the dumpster, comforting her and affirming her worth. Malea’s gratitude was palpable as she showered her rescuers with affection during her journey to the shelter.
