Oftentimes, stray animals are not at their best looking when they get rescued off the street. It makes sense, they’ve got no one looking out for them or caring for their wellbeing.
It’s so easy for stray animals to have all kinds of health problems when they get rescued. And that was the case for poor little Hilary.
The stray dog was looking worse for wear when she was spotted by Prue from Misson Pawsible. Prue had noted that the poor little dog was appearing more like a “hyena-looking animal” than a dog.
Still, despite her bad appearance, Prue knew that she had to help the little animal who was stuck on the side of a busy road.
According to The Dodo, Prue stopped to pick her up, and when she did, she was able to get a more up-close look at just how bad Hilary’s skin really was. She was suffering from a really bad case of mange, and as a result, she had open wounds all over her skin.
It wasn’t just her appearance that was bad, it was also her trust in people. Hilary was quite wary of Prue, and when she picked up, the dog completely froze up.
Despite Hilary’s discomfort at being held initially, it soon became apparent that she was thrilled to have been rescued. In fact, she fell asleep right in Prue’s lap as she transported the pooch to get medical care.
It was a long road to recovery, but eventually, she overcame her mange and her hair grew back to reveal she was a gorgeous dog with beautiful, silky fur.
