Anyone who has ever held a puppy knows just how adorable and adorable they are and how much joy they escort. For the average person, holding a puppy will make them want to cuddle up and play. Still, not all puppies have harmless homes and not all are born healthy, especially when it comes to stray animals. This was the case, sadly, for the cute little pups in this story out of Detroit, Michigan.
Kristina Rinaldi is the executive director of Detroit Dog saving who got a call one day to come pick up six stray pups from animal control. The litter had been establishing in an abandoned house nearby. Although it all seemed like just another day’s work, Rinaldi was shocked to find the little guys in terrible condition—all of them were so sick that they were burning up and had inflammation on their skin. What was even worse was that they had lost all of their furs. After checking the puppies, it was found that they all had mange. “I’ve seen a lot of mange cases in my dog rescue career,” Rinaldi says, “but this was the worst manga I had ever seen.” The latter was in such dire straits that two of the pups passed away on the way to the vet. Rinaldi left the pups at the care center for 12 weeks where they were watched over around the clock. Though the case seemed impossible, the vets gave it they're all. Fortunately, the puppies gradually started to regrow their fur.
As an added bonus, all the little guys were equipped in their own cute onesies and doggie sweaters. Once they were stabilized, the litter all got their names: Wilbur, Petunia, Pinkie and Arthur. Though it took some serious TLC, all of the dogs made a full recovery and were adopted into safe and loving homes.
While these puppies have been with the worst, what makes this story so inspiring is the dedicated caregivers who nursed them all back to health. Thanks to the kind-hearted staff of the Detroit Dog Rescue, Wilbur, Petunia, Pinkie and Arthur get to live out the rest of their days with all the comfort and love that they deserve. To the big-hearted individuals working with animal control and the Detroit Dog Rescue.
