Taken for a wolf that prowled around the neighborhood, the truth surprises everyone!
The truth surprises everyone!
A woman in Los Angeles came across this stray dog wandering around her house in a terrible condition. Starving, terrified, and visibly wounded, she wouldn’t let anyone near her. So she took a photo and sent it to the animal rescue group Hope For Paws. But on first glance, it wasn’t just the dog’s awful state of health that shocked the volunteers, but rather her breed… Or species. The dog looked very like a wolf, was she a cross between the two? That didn’t matter for the time being, what mattered was rescuing her and getting her on the road to recovery.
The volunteers rushed straight to the lady’s home to go and save the sick, stray dog. But when they found her, they were terribly concerned. Eldad Hagard, one of the founders of Hope For Paws, said : “This poor girl was so swollen from infections, she was bleeding, and it’s hard to see because of this coat, but she is just skin and bones.” It was hard at first, but the volunteers eventually managed to coax Julia in with treats so that they could immediately take her to the vet. They took off the rope that was fastened around her neck, proof that she had clearly once belonged to a family who no doubt abandoned her.
What a transformation!
Her diagnosis was bad: Julia had a severe case of mange which had already had serious, damaging effects on her skin. Her state of neglect was one of the worst the volunteers had ever seen and her paws were completely infected from cuts and her nails were so outgrown… But Julia knew that she was now in safe hands, and despite all her pain, she let the volunteers give her a medicated bath with no objection. Julia trusted them completely throughout the whole process. She was so exhausted after everything, so she soon fell asleep and spent her first night in complete safety and warmth. The first of many for this gorgeous dog, whose life was about to change forever. As you will see in the video, she’s now unrecognizable! What a transformation!
