This is a story of a neglected and malnourished dog that has a happy ending thanks to Karen Smith and her pet. While she and her dog were on the road, suddenly, the dog started barking at something he noticed. Karen wanted to check out if everything was fine so she pulled over on the side of the road, and that’s when she saw the animal that was in visibly bad health condition. There was a huge trash bag next to him.
Karen believes that the dog was actually inside the bag, but managed to get out of it moments before she stumbled upon it.
The dog was lucky to be noticed by a kind-hearted woman like Karen who knew she had to take care of it. She didn’t think twice before putting the dog in her vehicle. Her first stop was the Barren River Animal Welfare Association. Arthur, as Karen named him, had a severe skin infection and his whole body was covered in scabs and lesions. He was diagnosed with yeast infection as well.
However, after the medical treatment this poor dog went through, his condition improved a great deal and he started resembling a happy dog.
We really hope that Arthur will find his forever home now he is given for adoption. We are sure that this lovely dog who knows how to cherish life despite the difficulties he endured will make a great pet.
If you consider getting a dog, please adopt, don’t shop!
