Rescue Dog With Debilitating Skin Condition Makes Incredible Transformation

There are stray dogs everywhere around the world, and each one has his or her own tragic story.

Elsie was a stray dog living rough on the streets of Romania. The poor dog was suffering from a skin condition that left her skin pink and nearly raw.

She must have been feeling very uncomfortable and miserable, so it was no surprise that she wanted to be rescued.

In fact, this stray was proactive in her approach, going up to strangers and holding out her paw as though begging them to take her with them. Naturally, the strangers knew that they could not leave her behind.

But Elsie didn’t just think about herself. She actually had a friend with her as well! The other pooch, Hugo, was also in need of a helping hand.

The two strangers that Elsie had reached out to for help ended up getting in contact with Ray Animal Rescue who came to get Elsie and her buddy Hugo.

The first stop for both dogs was the vet. Hugo proved to be fine and in good health, but Elsie was a different story. Sadly, her skin condition required two months of medicated baths to eventually heal.

While Hugo was quickly adopted after coming into the rescue’s care, Elsie took a little longer. First, she had to get better first.

Finally, after six months, Elsie looked like a brand-new dog. She was placed in foster care with Andreea and Maria. While Elsie was only supposed to stay with them for two to three days before getting picked up by a potential family, Andreea and Maria came to the realization that they couldn’t say goodbye to the sweet pooch.

That is how Elsie became their foster fail and ended up living happily-ever-after with them. How wonderful!
