Starved And Infested With Parasites, This Dog Gets A Second Chance… And Makes The Most Of It.

A battered dog who was literally on death’s door received a second chance at life after a good Samaritan picked her up after seeing her hobbling down a sidewalk.

The wretched canine’s body was infested with parasites which had been eating away at her skin. She was so severely malnourished that her ribs were protruding. The dog was literally starving to death and didn’t have much longer to live.

Fortunately for the canine, a kind stranger, who named the dog Kelsey, succeeded in coaxing her into his car and took her to an animal shelter for help.

1. Kelsey was a homeless stray, forced to wander the streets alone.
