What would you do if you found an abandoned dog on the road? Any kind and animal-loving person would definitely stop and try their best to help. That is what this Florida couple did when they found a dog late near Oviedo.
They were driving late at night when they found an abandoned and disheveled pupper. He was not responding and seemed like a victim of severe neglect for all the years of his life. The couple could not keep him overnight, so they reached out to social media. Luckily, a pet groomer, Kari Falla, agreed to take him into her care.
“When a dog is matted that badly, it can cause its blood flow to stop as well as bruising to the dog,” Kari expressed her concern to Inside Edition. She opened her shop in the middle of the night, unprepared for the surprise she was in for. Falla continued, “I knew it was bad, but nothing prepared me for what I saw. It smelled like death and the dog could not walk.”
This is Lucky. Lucky enough to find himself in the right hands at last.
At Kari Falla’s pet salon.
Kari began trimming his extremely matted hair.
Kari performed an emergency grooming session till 3 a.m.
She removed the matted, knotty hair that was clearly troubling Lucky.
What a shocking revelation!
He had his first bath in a while.
Lucky had so much handsomeness hidden beneath the fur. He is deaf and blind.
Lucky can’t hide his gratefulness!
Now he’s waiting to meet his happy family.
“Once we shaved him, he was wagging his tail and was so happy. I knew I did the right thing.” Great people, indeed!
This noble job garnered tremendous support on the Internet.
