Rescuers in Puerto Rico came across a dog, later named Caci, who was so abused that she didn’t even look like a dog. She had sores all over her body and her face was so swollen. It was not known who did this to her, but most importantly, she was now safe and away from her abuser.
Rescuers took her in and provided her with the emergency medical care she needed. Doctors were worried because they weren’t sure if she would survive at all, but they promised to do anything to save her life.
A few days after she was at the clinic, she had already reacted to the antibiotic she was given. The swelling on her face had diminished so much and she was starting to look like a real dog.
The New York Bully Crew posted its story online that has touched thousands of people around the world. Everyone was following her daily progress, and thankfully, things began looking up.
As the days went on, she was healing more and more. She loved to run around the clinic and was breaking out of her shell. Despite everything she had been through, she was such a friendly dog. Usually dogs who have suffered abuse at the hands of humans, are very timid and nervous around people, but Caci still loved human affection and was very trusting.
Once she was healthy and sterilized enough, she was ready to fly to New York where she would be received by the New York Bully Crew. She looks so much better now and is doing great! She plays and meets new canine friends and loves life. Now the only thing missing is an eternal loving home, which NYBC will hopefully help her find!
Watch her amazing transformation in the video below. Her road to recovery has been a long journey, but not once has her positive demeanor waivered. For everything she’s been through, she is a very loving and strong dog. Her story is an inspiration to us all!
