26-year-old Bali native Rico Soegiarto was walking home from work one day when he spotted a dangerously malnourished dog. The pup he saw was almost a skeleton, and was in such bad she had bald spots, and was so thin you could see her bones through her diseased skin. She didn’t have long left to live. Despite her condition however, her brilliant blue eyes still shone bright and Rico knew that he had to give the neglected pup a second chance
Rico shared, “I don’t know what was special about her. It’s about heart and feeling. I found her when I was on the way back home from work, she was in the middle of the street.”
Rico took the husky in and gave it a proper grooming, took it to the vet and gave it a healthy diet. The vet was able to treat the dog’s wounds and advised Soegiarto on what he should feed his dog to get his weight up.
After 10 months, the dog is completely unrecognizable. Her wounds are all gone, her coat is thick and beautiful and she is strong and healthy.
Rico has shared with the world Hope’s incredible 10-month transformation and wishes for everyone to take a chance on a dog in need.
