This dog, named Violet, was found living in filthy, deplorable conditions. She was also in very bad shape and was so weak that she was barely able to stand.
She had an extremely severe skin condition with open wounds all over her body which were very painful. Her nails were so long that they curled into her skin.
Thankfully, The Humane Society of the United States rescued Violet, along with many other dogs, from an abandoned house in Louisiana. The house was filled with garbage and the dogs did not have any food or water or any source of comfort.
The dogs were immediately taken to the animal hospital where they were treated for their ailments. Violet was treated for her skin condition and got antibiotics as well as medicated baths. After a couple of weeks, Violet’s skin and wounds began to heal and her hair started growing back. She was already looking like a whole new dog!
And the best part of all? Violet has since found her forever home! Today, she loves going on walks with her new family and playing with her new doggy friends.
Oftentimes stray dogs seek shelter wherever they can, especially when the temperature outside is cold.
