Emaciated stray puppy found on road makes a recovery and finds a new home

All dogs deserve love, happiness and a good home, but sadly many dogs spend their lives as strays, struggling to get by on the street and never knowing love.

But one dog has now made an incredible recovery, going from a life on the streets to a loving new home ❤️

Dobby, a six-month-old puppy, was first found on the streets of Iberville Parish, Louisiana as an emaciated stray. According to NBC San Diego, Dobby’s life consisted of hot asphalt and scrounging for scraps of food.

“You could see it all over her cute, hairless face,” wrote Alison Alvarado, director of Iberville Parish Shelter & Animal Control. “The sweetest, most accepting and loving pup I have come in contact with in a long time.”

Thankfully, Dobby was taken in by the shelter. Her skin was hairless and scabby, but with a warm bath and a cozy bed in her new foster home, she was soon on her way to recovery.

She was diagnosed with demodectic mange, which caused her hair loss. But after receiving treatments, her fur began to regrow.

According to NBC, Dobby was one of 100 dogs flown from New Orleans to other shelters throughout the country.

She ended up at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey, where she was soon put up for adoption. Thankfully, it wasn’t long before this sweet dog found her forever home.

St. Hubert’s shared a photo of a very happy Dobby with her new owner, sharing the amazing news on Instagram on September 15.

“Dobby has been through a lot in her short life,” they wrote. “Now she’s beginning a wonderful new chapter of her life with her adoptive family, and we couldn’t be happier!”

It’s a beautiful photo to see — in addition to the great news of Dobby’s adoption, it’s a reminder of how far she’s come. That happy, healthy dog is a long way from the emaciated, mangy dog found on the streets just weeks ago.

It just goes to show the power that a little love can have on the life of a dog.

We’re so happy that Dobby is doing so much better and has a great forever home! Share this amazing news! ❤️
