Siberian Huskies are beautiful creatures, full of love and affection. However, as with many pets, sometimes their owners find them overwhelming. Perhaps they didn’t have the means to care for her, but there’s no excuse for just abandoning any dog. Always look for a shelter if possible, so your pup gets the best care possible. That is not what happened with this dog, who was left on the streets and ended up a malnourished Husky with nowhere to go.
Luckily for her, kind soul Rico Soegiarto spotted her in the road. He was on his way home from work when he saw her lying in the street. She looked emaciated and on death’s door. Stray dogs are a familiar sight in Bali, but Soegiarto was drawn to the malnourished Husky. He thought of his four dogs at home and decided they could use another friend.
“I don’t know what was special about her,” Soegiarto said. “It’s about heart and feeling. I found her when I was on the way back home from work, she was in the middle of the street.”
It was when he brought her home that he named her Hope. Despite her appalling conditions, he saw hope in her eyes. Soegiarto knew he had to do everything in his power to nurse Hope back to health. And now, she looks beautiful.
At first, she put on weight and soon began to get her happy personality back. After 10 long months, she looks like a totally different dog! Hope is honestly unrecognisable from the malnourished Husky that Soegiarto found nearly a year before.
She is also much happier now. She loves her new friends, Soegiarto’s other dogs, and is always the centre of attention. Luckily, she gets lots of cuddles and love from her new family.
