 Sɪᴄᴋʟʏ Puppy Used All She Had To Sit Up And Tell Mom It Would Be All Right

Life on the streets is ᴄʀᴜᴇʟ enough. Hᴏᴍᴇʟᴇss animals sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀ from sᴛᴀʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, lack of shelter and clean water, and danger from oncoming traffic as they cross busy streets to find food. It is ᴇxʜᴀᴜsᴛɪɴɢ and ʀᴇʟᴇɴᴛʟᴇss. In many parts of the world, stray animals run rampant. It isn’t possible to house them all but many organizations, Like Animal Aid, do all they can to help as many animals as possible. The rescue group received a call about a dog that had sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇ ᴍᴀɴɢᴇ. Mange is always challenging to ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛ but her case was so extensive that she had lost all of her fur, leaving her exposed to secondary sᴋɪɴ ɪɴꜰᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴs, ᴘᴀʀᴀsɪᴛᴇs, and ᴘᴏᴛᴇɴᴛɪᴀʟ sᴜɴʙᴜʀɴ which could be ꜰᴀᴛᴀʟ. Animal Aid dispatched volunteers to help the dog. The dog wasn’t just wary of people. She had good reason for staying on the streets. She was a new mother and her babies depended on her. It took a lot of coaxing, and a lot of dog ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛs, but the volunteer was finally able to get close enough to Momma to pick her up. Now it was time to find her puppies.

They would bring both dogs into the rescue center together.

Momma was put on ᴛʜᴇ ᴇxᴀᴍ ᴛᴀʙʟᴇ. Hᴇʀ ᴘᴏᴏʀ body was ʀɪᴅᴅʟᴇᴅ with mange. She needed ᴛᴏᴘɪᴄᴀʟ ᴀɴᴛɪʙɪᴏᴛɪᴄ ᴏɪɴᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ and daily ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛᴇᴅ ʙᴀᴛʜs. They hoped that with their ᴅɪʟɪɢᴇɴᴄᴇ and good nutrition, she would make a full ʀᴇᴄᴏᴠᴇʀʏ. Momma was sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ but the ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀʟ team did their best to soothe her. Once the dogs were settled in, it was time for their first meal. Momma and Coco weren’t used to being confined to a kennel nor interacting with humans in this capacity. When a volunteer came in with a big bowl of food, the dogs were a bit worried at first. But once the volunteer knelt down and showed them that she only had the best intentions (and a delicious bowl of food!), the dogs came over and began to eat. It warmed everyone’s hearts right up.After a couple of weeks of diligent ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ, Coco and her mom improved drastically. Coco even had the energy to play and it drove Momma a little ᴄʀᴀᴢʏ. The cutest thing happened next and the volunteers were in awe. Coco watched her mom carefully and imitated everything she did. If Momma scratched her ear, so did Coco. If Momma sat down to scratch, so did Coco. Coco didn’t take her eyes off of her mother and it was utterly adorable.
