Couple finds hairless elderly dog abandoned on a road

When Danielle Finley and her boyfriend were driving on a dirt road in rural Pennsylvania in the United States, they saw small animals running toward them. They thought it was a raccoon, but they didn't expect it to be a dog.

He was a poor hairless puppy who was desperate for help. “We thought he was getting to escape the road during a minute, so we kept driving. But he didn’t run away, so we stopped and he came running and looked into the car,” said Danielle.


It was then that Finley and her boyfriend took an honest check out the animal, which clothed to be an old, hairless dog. “Actually, we had two of our other dogs, our two Boston terriers, with us, so we got out of the car and checked. He was nice, so we got some pet food and a few water,” added the girl .

They named the puppy Phil, and the poor thing swallowed up the food and water the couple gave him. But Danielle knew that they had to try to far more for him. If he belonged to anyone, he was definitely lost. And if it didn’t belong to anyone, he couldn’t stay there alone. Inso that they didn’t hesitate to select him up and take him home.

They first believed that Phil had scabies, an infectious disease caused by mites that invaded the skin and caused hair loss. But the vet gave them another diagnosis that surprised them. This is a very serious skin disease, just because of contact.

Danielle’s heart broke in two when she discovered that the straightforward fact of abandonment and helplessness left him hairless and with an unbearable itch and smell.

In Phil’s condition that the vet commented on, Danielle said: “The bottom a part of his teeth are crushed, so his theory is that it had been probably because he was kept during a box all the time and eventually he was abandoned because his health problems got out of control.”

But no matter how rough his past may are, the great news was that Phil had found his forever home, because for Danielle and her boyfriend, though it had been hard to stay and look after him, they not felt ready to close the doors on his heart. “We have three other dogs, so why not add another to the clan?,” said the admirable woman.

Currently, Phil is receiving a special diet to help him recover, and his fur grows slowly. Gradually, a faint fuzz grows on her skin, unfortunately she is going to have permanent stains remaining, but Danielle only cares about mending her heart. Many people, upon seeing it, say it's a sort of hyena or “the chupacabra.” But to his owner, when she looks into his eyes, he's definitely the sweetest, most beautiful, loveliest creature which will exist.

He just wants to play and relax with you all the time. Also, there's your little face, he has that expression in his eyes as if he's gratified all the time. It’s as if he can’t believe that he features a comfortable place to lie a day. Phil gets along alright with Finley’s other three rescue dogs, though he has formed a very close bond with his older Boston bull, Lily. “They get pretty accumulated most of the time. you'll nearly always find them accumulated ,” says Danielle, laughing.

Phil seems to understand how lucky he's and is consistently showing affection. But his master proudly admits that she who owns him is undoubtedly the luckiest and luckiest person in her life. It’s touching to find out how a puppy with a dark destiny found his angels in the right place, who changed his life forever.
