The beautiful island of Bali is home to many stray dogs, and it’s very common to see them while walking the streets. Because of this, so many of them are ignored and forgotten. But a man named Rico is an animal lover and had four rescue dogs when he came across a malnourished Husky on the street. There was just something about her, and he had to have her.
Scroll down to see the powerful pictures below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
This is the aptly-named husky Hope, who was abandoned and neglected on the streets of Denpasar, Bali
When Rico Soegiarto, 26, first encountered the pup on the way home from work one night, she had bald spots
And was so thin you could see her bones through her diseased skin
She didn’t have long left to live
Despite her condition however, her brilliant blue eyes still shone bright
And Rico knew that he had to give the neglected pup a second chance
“I don’t know what was special about her”, Rico said.
“It’s 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”
After carefully nursing the husky back to health, with grooming, pet visits and plenty of good food
Rico shared the results of his beloved new pet’s transformation
She’s now strong and healthy with a thick, lustrous coat and those same burning blue eyes
She clearly adores Rico. “She loves getting petted and eats plenty of cookies!”
Hope is now part of a happy family with Rico, his girlfriend and 4 other pups
Here’s how people reacted to the beautiful story. What do you think ?
