There are so many homeless animals outside who struggle to stay alive and find some food. Some of them make it through and some don’t in this story, Billy was a true survivor.
Billy was spotted by a couple while he was walking passed their house. A man, named Bill, was sitting at his computer and saw Billy outside his window.
He yelled for his wife to come over and look. Bill’s wife Krista was like, “That’s not a deer! That’s a dog!”
The couple immediately called for help. The rescuers arrived and spotted the harmless dog.
Billy was immediately rushed to the vet. The poor dog was starved and dehydrated. He was so frail, merely skin and bones.
Once at the vet, Krista and Bill hung around. Krista explains in the video below that she fell in love with Billy instantly. The look in his eyes, the pain he was feeling, everything that made him continue to fight– connected her to him for life.
The poor pup was so hungry he could eat anything they would have given him, however the stuff knew that this wasn’t the right way to keep stuff down. It was also pretty critical if he would survive, yet he had many fans cheering him up.
By the next day, however, things were looking up. Billy was fighting hard and the IV fluids and nutrition were helping. He was able to move about easier.
His lethargy was certainly improving. The only downside was that his medical bills were piling up. The couple was overwhelmed.
That is when the “Saving Billy” fundraiser was established. The entire community wanted to help! It was truly amazing!
Thankfully he was recovered and was ready to leave the vet. Krista was willing to be his foster mom and there was nothing Bill could do to change her mind.
Billy was thrilled to leave the vet but being in a home would be a huge transition. Billy needed a special diet and physiotherapy. It took quite the commitment but Krista never wavered.
As days came and went, Billy put on weight and started feeling right at home. He had new doggy siblings too! One doggy brother, Remington, and Billy became inseparable.
Krista created such a strong bond with Billy, it was impossible to let go. He is now happier than ever and enjoys his life with his amazing parents.
