To Help This Pooch Heal, Rescuers Needed To Be Very Gentle Because One Touch Cause This Pup Pain!
By Victoria Lange
Helen is a dog that was found by the rescue organization, Animal Aid Unlimited. When she was found, she had been living as a stray and was so sick that she had no strength to move or stand. She had just curled herself into a ball and waited for her rescuers to make the first approach.
As the rescue team got a closer look at Helen, they noticed that her skin was raw. It had very little hair, was extremely scabbed, and hurt when touched. They knew it was something that needed to be taken care of right away, but they didn’t want to alarm Helen by just grabbing her right off the bat. Instead, they began to soothingly stroke Helen’s tufts of fur and as Helen became more comfortable, the rescuers fed her with treats. Slowly but surely, Helen began to trust the rescue team. So much so, that Helen allowed the rescuers to wrap her in a blanket, pick her up, and carry her to safety.
Once brought to safety, Animal Aid Unlimited did everything they could to treat Helen’s illnesses and injuries. They gave her a warm place to sleep, food to eat, and medication that she desperately needed. They gave her a much-needed bath and began applying lotion to her skin to help it heal. And as time went by, Helen began to show signs of improvement each day.
Little by little, Helen began to heal. Her skin improved immensely and within just a few months, Helen was fully healed! Her transformation was astounding. Her skin was completely healed and she now has fur covering her entire body instead of the sparse patches she had before. But most importantly, Helen was happy. She finally has the life she deserves. One filled no pain and plenty of love.
