Hairless Stray Dog Turns Up On Man’s Doorstep And Begs For Help

 Anyone who’s been to ny within the winter knows just how cold the temperature can recover from there – especially in the dark time.

So when somebody decided to abandon their dog on the freezing cold streets one January night, we’re thanking our lucky stars that the poor thing was ready to get help before it had been too late.



The pup may need been abandoned, but she was still trusting enough to approach somebody’s doorstep in Earlton, where she sat and waited patiently for the door to open. Eventually, the smart dog’s patience paid off, as a person within the house opened his door and discovered the hairless, skinny dog sitting on his doorstep.


“It appeared that she had been dumped by the roadside and abandoned,” a spokesperson for the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA wrote on Facebook. “It was a frigid night, and it had been assumed she came to the door trying to find food and heat .”



The man instantly brought the dog inside to warm her up, and he called the police who took her to a close-by shelter.

The staff instantly fell crazy with the dog, who they named Penny, and that they knew that they urgently needed to urge her to a vet to start out treatment.

“She was in bad shape,” Ron Perez, president of the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA, told The Dodo. “She had some open lacerations on her face and neck, and was just about barren of any hair. it had been sad. It’s 

The vets discovered that Penny was affected by a condition called Demodex mange, and she or he had mites burrowing into her skin. She’d lost most of her fur, and her skin was flaky and scabbed and looked incredibly sore. We’ll never know what quite past Penny had been through, but the very fact that she’d received the vet’s with such a significant skin condition shows the sheer neglect that she must have received.



Penny began treatment for her mange immediately , and her fight for all times was truly inspirational. In no time in the least , she was starting to show signs of improvement – as if she was quite able to put the past behind her.

But with medical treatment and much of loving care, Penny got better — and more quickly than anyone expected.



“Within one week, she seemed like a special dog,” Ron said. “The vet was pretty impressed together with her recovery.”


A few more weeks passed, and Penny’s mange had completely cleared. Although her fur may never fully grow back, her skin was now smooth and healed again.



“She’s a true fighter and really resilient,” Ron said “Her stress levels are clearly much lower now, because she’s interacting with people and she or he has proper food and is sleeping correctly.”


As Penny was receiving her treatment, the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA had been working to seek out out who might be behind such disgusting neglect – and fewer than 24 hours later, Penny’s former owner was identified and arrested on animal cruelty charges. If convicted, he could face a $1,000 fine and jail time.


And that wasn’t the sole excellent news . Penny was close to be adopted!



“We got tons of applications to adopt her,” Ron said. “But these two individuals are fantastic pet owners. They took it slowly and came and visited together with her a few times every week . They brought their dogs in, and everybody got along fabulously. I’d wish to think this may be the last home she’ll ever attend .”


After a couple of visits to the shelter, the family visited for one final time – and this point they left with Penny. she will now continue to possess the life that she’s always deserved.


“She’s just a sweet dog,” Ron said. “She really doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She’s an absolute doll, and she’s getting to be an excellent pet.”
