Where do you go when you need a little help in the looks department? The beauty store, of course! And that’s just what this mama dog did in Houston. The dog had been seen by the emporium’s employees hanging around the back door of the store for about a month when they called Houston’s South Side Street Dogs to come and get her. Erika and Sandro came out and found the dog exactly where the employees said they would – lying down by the door.
They were told she was friendly and that she had been coming to the door and lying down every single day for the last month, even when it was raining. It was clear she had mange that needed treatment.
Houston has a major stray dog problem; it is estimated that they have over one million stray dogs. The rescues and shelters are full and cannot take dogs off the streets unless a foster comes forward. So they do their best to feed and treat the dogs on the street. It’s illegal in Houston to feed stray dogs, but they do it anyway. Every day.
That day, this adorable mama dog got the food and mange medicine she needed. Later, she would be taken to rescue, where she would get the love and attention she deserves.
