Sometimes, all you have to do is look at a dog to know that she’s been mistreated. This 15-month old bulldog was suffering from mange, weighing only 18 pounds, and missing patches of fur – obviously, she had been neglected, abused, and abandoned.
There’s no telling how many people might have passed her by as she was lying on the pavement on the side of the road. Luckily, somebody saw her just in the nick of time…
A good Samaritan was taken aback when he saw this puppy lying on the side of the road, and promptly called for help.
Her owner probably could have gotten the bulldog the help that she needed for her skin condition had he not completely abandoned her. Not only did she have mange, but she was malnourished and anemic, with terrible blood counts and electrolyte levels. The organization that took her in, Adopt-A-Bull Rescue, named her Princess after taking her to their facility. She was in such bad condition that she struggled to even keep her eyes open, but she was brave.
With plenty of affection and attention, Princess got stronger. She finally started receiving the food, rest, and medical care that she needed.
After just a few days, Princess got healthy and happy enough to stay in a foster home, where she met her step-brother, Cliffy.
You can tell from Princess’s smile that she loves her new bed!
Amazingly, none of the health problems that Princess sustained were permanent. She even grew her fur back! Keep fighting, Princess!
It’s incredible to think about how far she’s come after looking like this when she was first rescued!
