When Rico Soegiarto found this malnourished and abandoned husky, the poor dog was so weak and sick from neglect that it could barely stand up.
The animal was wandering the streets of Denpasar, Bali with bald patches on its mangy coat thereby revealing exposed sores. He was so malnourished that he looked “skeletal”.
He could barely hold himself up, and he had long, dirty nails that had not been trimmed for at least months.
It is believed that the husky would likely have died soon after Rico found him unless he was nursed back to health. Rico took care of the poor animal by washing and trimming his coat, feeding him properly, and taking him to the vet regularly.
Ten months later the dog now has a full, white coat and looks strong and healthy.
The husky is also happy and playful, and he loves his new owner!
