A Sad ‘Skeleton’ Pup Who Was Roaming The Streets Turns Into A Happy Dog

A Sad ‘Skeleton’ Pup Who Was Roaming The Streets Turns Into A Happy Dog

For dogs who relentlessly roam the streets, every day is a struggle. Instead of enjoying regular meals in a loving home, these pups spend their days trying to find morsels of food in order to stay alive.

Gracie was one of the sad, stray dogs who struggled to survive day after day. Since it was extremely difficult to find anything that resembled food, she spent her days and nights on an empty stomach.

The little stray became so malnourished that she turned into a ‘skeleton’ pup.

Just when everything in her life looked bleak and hopeless, wonderful humans noticed her and stepped in to help her.

Saving The Stray Pup

She was found and admitted to the Georgia-based J-Lo’s Animal Rescue & Sanctuary, which specializes in rescuing stray animals. 

When Jessica, the rescue’s founder, met her for the first time, she felt heartbroken. 

The pooch looked at her with her sorrowful eyes. All the bones in her fragile body were protruding. She was in a terrible state. 

Jessica decided to foster the pup, feeling confident that the dog would soon recover with the right care and a ton of love. 

She named her Gracie.

Gracie was touched by her foster mom’s kindness and compassion. The pup’s eyes began glimmering with hope as Jessica stroked her head.

Jessica gave her a soothing bath and wrapped her in a towel. 

The following day, Jessica took Gracie to the vet, where she received the necessary medical care.

Gracie often curled up on her foster mom’s lap and rested her head on her shoulder. She felt safe, knowing that she was no longer on her own. 

While Jessica held her in her arms, she couldn’t bear to think about the hardships Gracie went through while she lived on the streets.

Getting A Lot Of Love

Gracie enjoyed snuggling with her foster mom. Her tail wagged all the time. She felt happy. 

Jessica’s own pup, Bluebell, was always by Gracie’s side to support her. She became the mom that the sweet stray needed. The two canines loved playing together in the yard.

Gradually, Gracie started gaining weight and transforming into a healthy pup. 

The pup used every opportunity she had to shower Jessica with kisses. Gracie loved her deeply, and she appreciated all the affection she gave her.

Gracie’s Transformation

Thanks to a lot of love and perfect care, Gracie blossomed into a gorgeous and confident dog. Her face was glowing with happiness. She was unrecognizable. 

The beautiful Georgia girl continues waiting for her forever family. In the meantime, she soaks up all Jessica’s love.

She relishes playing and rolling in the yard with Jessica’s own dogs and the other rescue pups. 

Gracie’s story demonstrates the importance of stepping in and helping all stray dogs get the help and love they need and deserve. 

They count on our kindness and compassion. Let’s not disappoint them.
