This heartwarming video reveals the transformation back to good health undertaken by a stray dog found wandering the streets of India.
Staff at Animal Aid Unlimited heard about the canine’s plight and so took it upon themselves to save him.
And the dog’s transformation is nothing short of remarkable. Suffering from terrible mange, after six weeks of loving care he appears a perfectly healthy, happy pet.
The pet dog was found cowering on the streets of India, terrified by people and suffering from mange
But six weeks later, he is seen as a normal, healthy and happy dog that enjoys human affection
After catching the pained and terrified animal using a large net, the centre’s staff began a slow process of nursing it back to health.
Giving him affection, food, water, and medicated baths, the dog slowly begins to show signs of improvement.
Within just days his coat begins to show signs of improvement, although he remains shy and appears uncomfortable with affection.
But six weeks later, the turnaround is complete. He is seen playing with other dogs and enjoying the affection his carers while roaming the compound grounds.
Mange is a skin disease brought on by tiny mites which animals living in urban environments sometimes suffer.
It is distinctive by how it appears on the animal’s skin and for its victim, can be itchy, painful and smelly
