Many wounded strays living on the streets meet individuals who want to help them, but who don't always have the resources.
Scooter, the pup, got seriously injured and someone tried to help him but he couldn't complete the treatment for any reason.
She was in bad shape when she was discovered on the streets of Kolkata, India. His hind legs were coiled, making it impossible for him to move, and one of his many wounds had rotted and been devoured by maggots.
When the Good Samaritans discovered her, they assumed she had been attacked by another dog.
Scooter was gently picked up and sent to an animal hospital where she was treated for broken hind legs and septic wounds. This poor dog's road to recovery has been a long one.
Scooter was finally ready to join a family after months of therapy.
According to Paw My Gosh, Alexandra Jade took an interest in Scooter for several months before moving her to Virginia to live with her new family, who she nicknamed Dobby.
Dobby went through a lot as a puppy while living on the streets and now he wears the scars to show it.
