Dog in Bali is given a second chance
Kelsey was street dog in Bali. A terrible skin condition caused most of her hair to fall out, making it difficult to identify her breed.
When animal welfarists found Kelsey on the street, she was emaciated and covered in fleas. Too weak to run away, she barely reacted when they petted her.
The dog was taken to an animal hospital where she received immediate treatment. Kelsey, perhaps accustomed to pain and fear, endured it all without a whimper.
Though she was terribly ill, Kelsey's calmness astonished the vets.
The treatment was effective. A week after arriving, Kelsey's wounds were already healing and she was smiling at the camera.
She even had enough courage to say hello to her other doggy friends!
Kelsey slowly transformed into an attentive and loving dog. Sometimes she would sit and simply gaze into the distance. Thinking about future treats, maybe?
Eventually, her beautiful white fur began to grow back.
After a full recovery, Kelsey looked like a completely different dog, and was ready to be adopted.
It was difficult to believe that Kelsey had been covered in wounds just three weeks before.
But then the real happy ending comes: Kelsey was adopted! This picture found its way back to the rescuers at the animal hospital.
Thanks to the attention of caring people, Kelsey was given a second chance, and now happily lives in a loving home. Way to win that smile back, Kelsey!
