Two women were driving on a road in Bali when they saw a dog crouching in a small kennel in front of an empty villa.
They immediately stopped to check on the dog, and realized how bad her condition was as they approached her. She appeared to be malnourished and had lost most of her hair due to mange, making her skin extremely scaly and painful.
They gave her food and water and had to be very gentle so she wouldn't get scared and run into nearby traffic. They spent the next hour relying on it before they could get it. To their surprise, the pups were very calm once they were petted. It's as if she realizes that she is finally safe and that these ladies are there to help her.
They brought her to the vet, where it was confirmed that she had mange, as well as an eye infection, which was easy to do, thank God. Then, they brought her home so they could care for her in a comfortable environment while she healed physically and mentally. They chose to name this wonderful girl Lucy. Lucy's life before now was a mystery, but one thing is certain - the days and years that follow will surely end up being everything she deserves and more.
Throughout her recovery, she had many “firsts,” including visiting the beach and walking on the grass. Lucy came out of her shell and became very friendly and affectionate. She loves cuddles and enjoys playing with other canines. A month later, Lucy finally found a forever home with a loving couple named Matt and Brianna from Washington, DC.
“I think considering everything she's been through, the fact that she's so kind and so loving and trusting of us is amazing,” Brianna said.
Lucy settled into her new home very quickly and immediately bonded with her new parents. She lives life and destroys every day. Her change is definitely incredible. Find yourself in the video below, and go here to follow her adventures on Instagram.
