Dog lovers, get the tissues ready, because this pup’s transformation is a tear-jerker if we ever saw one. It all starts with a lovable pooch named Rosie who was found hairless, itchy, starving, and all alone. To make matters worse, she also had demodectic mange — a skin infection caused by mites.
But lucky Rosie was taken in by the kind, caring people at Vet Ranch, a Texas-based organization that provides veterinary treatment for homeless animals. Though she was in a rough state when she first arrived, things were about to get better for her — a whole lot better.
As the now-viral Reddit video of Rosie’s transformation shows, the hard-working folks at Vet Ranch had to put a lot of effort in helping the doggo recover from whatever horrible things she had been through. After she was comforted and had her skin treated, she got a good, solid scrub-down. Don’t we all feel better after a nice, warm bath?
It’s just a short clip, but it shows how big of a difference that a little tender love and care can make in just a matter of months. The best part? Rosie finally gets to go home to a loving adoptive family. We truly couldn’t be happier for her — she truly deserves all the love she can get for the rest of her life.
