Neglected Dog Found With Unbelievable Tick Infestation Recovers, Gets Adopted
Lifestyle| | By Matthew D'Onofrio
We know this image is unsettling but this pupper has a happy ending.
An abused dog was rescued in South Africa – covered in ticks – and after her treatment she was adopted and now looking cuter (and happier) than ever.
The Community Led Animal Welfare, a welfare organization for primary veterinarian care, took in a neglected canine months ago that was infested with thousands of ticks.
Volunteers named the doggie Belle and she was put on a drip, but had to wait it out until all the tickets fell off on their own or risk bleeding out if the parasites were forcibly removed.
Eventually, she healed and her owners were said to have been held accountable for their inhumanity.
And a just a few days ago, it was discovered that Belle found a new home and an actual loving family with her new owner, Hailey.
