This pregnant stray dog couldn’t stop smiling after being rescued from a hoarding situation.
Some dogs suffer greatly as a result of human neglect throughout their lives. However, there are people all around the world who want to give these dogs a second opportunity and the love they deserve.
That is the story of one dog that has been through a lot but never lost her smile — and who now has reason to smile.
No Canine Left Behind, a Minnesota dog rescue, presented the story of “Smile,” a dog named because she usually has a smile on her face, last month.
Smile has had a terrible existence, despite her outward contentment. She was rescued from a hoarding situation in Tijuana, Mexico. The rescue uncovered 23 dogs and 21 cats living in horrible conditions.
There is no longer a canine. The homeowner had excellent intentions, but the circumstances overpowered her, and the dogs began to breed and spread disease. “Many of them were pregnant, and the majority of them had sarcoptic mange, a contagious and painful skin disease.”
Smile’s condition was modest, but she had mange, which bothered her. She was infected with tick-borne infections as well. She was also found to be pregnant, but her puppies died as a result of the mistreatment and anxiety. “It breaks our hearts for her,” the rescuers explained.
No Dog Left Behind treated Smile’s physical issues because they believed they were meant to give her the second chance she deserved. “We were smitten by the hope we saw in her eyes.” “Smile was supposed to come to our aid,” they explained on Facebook.
Despite the challenges and misery, Smile was on the path to a better life, and she never lost her wide infectious grin. “Despite the pain and discomfort, Smile is so grateful and trusting.” “She realizes that her life will be better from now on,” they said.
Smile had a lasting impression on the rescuers, especially NDLB operations manager Stephanie Easley, who states Smile “captured [her] heart.”
Stephanie volunteered to raise the puppy after Smile’s confinement for her skin ailment expired. Smile is even happier in her current foster home, according to her, who stated it was a terrific experience.
“The moment I open my eyes, she’s already looking at me, and, of course, smiling,” Stephanie told The Dodo. “The genuine love in her eyes is what sets her apart as the most unusual dog I’ve ever met.””They’re expressive… just by glancing at them, you can tell what she’s thinking or feeling.”
Stephanie worries her home isn’t the perfect “forever home” for Smile because their foster status is only temporary. But she believes that there is a perfect home out there for this amazing puppy.
“My hope is that she’ll receive a family as crazy about her as mine is, [one] that makes her smile and look at them with all the love in her eyes,” she told The Dodo.
We’re thrilled Smile is doing so well after all she’s gone through, and we hope she finds a forever home soon! She surely has a beautiful smile!
