Bali is an exquisite island in Indonesia which is beautiful in numerous ways. But for the last couple of years, the number of abandoned stray dogs have increased beyond limits in it.
Although the government is trying to keep things under control, animal shelters and some citizens also do their best to give these poor, innocent pups the life they deserve!
One such beautiful story recently came to light and went viral in no time. It all started when a 26-year-old man, Rico Soegiarto, found a stray dog alongside a street in Denpasar.
Malnourished and sore-ridden, the little husky was literally in the worst possible state.
When Rico first encountered her, she was covered in bald spots and was unbelievably thin like a skeleton.
Her bones were clearly visible from the thin layer of her diseased skin and it was evident that she didn’t have long left to live.
Despite all this, her blue eyes shone brilliantly and just after having the first look at her, Rico knew what he was supposed to do. He had decided to give a second chance to the unfortunate dog which he named “Hope.”
“I don’t know what was special about her,” Rico told Bored Panda. “Its about heart and feeling. I found her when I was on the way back home from work, she was in the middle of the street.”
And what a chance it was! Rico carefully nursed Hope back to a healthy state, with a lot of grooming, several pet visits and, of course, plenty of food!
Due to his efforts and dedication, Hope was completely transformed within a time span of just 10 months. Now the husky is healthy and strong with a lustrous, thick coat and even brighter blue eyes!
Hope clearly adores her savior and can’t keep her paws off him.
“She loves getting petted and eats plenty of cookies!” Rico told Bored Panda. “And she is so sociable that she worries me sometimes. There are many thieves in Bali.”
However, she is safe as long as she is with Rico, who is a dedicated animal lover and also has four other dogs living with him.
Hope can’t be any happier in her life, thanks to her kind savior!
