A stray dog who was pregnant was found in a hoarding situation, but her luck changed when she was rescued by kind-hearted individuals. While many dogs suffer from neglect and abuse, there are compassionate people who want to provide these canines with a new lease on life and shower them with love and care. This particular dog went through a lot of hardships, but still managed to keep a cheerful disposition, and now has every reason to continue smiling.
Last month, No Canine Left Behind, a dog rescue based in Minnesota, shared the story of a dog named “Smile.” Despite her name and seemingly happy demeanor, Smile has had a difficult life. She was rescued from a hoarding situation in Tijuana, Mexico where she lived with 23 other dogs and 21 cats in deplorable conditions. The homeowner had good intentions, but the situation became overwhelming and the animals began to breed and spread disease. Smile and her companions suffered from sarcoptic mange, a painful and contagious skin disease, and many were pregnant. Thankfully, Smile and the other animals were rescued and are now receiving proper care.
Smile was in a state of modest condition, yet she was suffering from mange which was causing her great distress. Moreover, she was also found to be infected with tick-borne infections. It was found that she was pregnant, but unfortunately, her puppies could not survive due to neglect and anxiety. Rescuers felt deeply saddened by Smile’s plight. However, No Dog Left Behind stepped in to provide Smile with the care she needed to recover. They felt that Smile deserved a second chance and were moved by the hope they saw in her eyes. According to their Facebook post, they believed that Smile was destined to come into their care.
In spite of facing various difficulties and hardships, Smile remained positive and optimistic about her future. Her contagious smile never left her face throughout her ordeal. Those around her admired her ability to stay grateful and trusting despite the pain she endured. The rescuers who saved Smile were deeply moved by her spirit, particularly NDLB operations manager Stephanie Easley, who admitted that Smile had a special place in her heart. After Smile’s recovery from her skin condition, Stephanie gladly assumed the role of raising the puppy. Smile now resides in a foster home, where she seems to be thriving. Stephanie shared that Smile greets her every day with an affectionate gaze and a wide grin, making her the most unique dog she has ever met. Her expressive eyes reveal her thoughts and emotions, making her an extraordinary companion.
Stephanie is concerned that her current home may not be the ideal permanent residence for Smile, as they are still in a foster status. Nevertheless, she firmly believes that the perfect forever home exists for this exceptional pup. Stephanie expressed her hope that Smile finds a family who adores her just as much as hers does and makes her happy enough to light up her eyes with love. It’s delightful to learn that Smile is thriving despite her troubled past, and we sincerely hope she finds her forever home soon. Her smile is truly captivating! Kindly help spread the word about this touching tale.
