For the first two weeks after being taken in by her foster mom, Dina, Abby’s condition did not improve. The blisters on her face worsened, and she didn’t want to be touched. She would retreat to her kennel, lying there and crying. Concerned for Abby’s health, Dina took her to the vet, where they conducted numerous skin tests, blood tests, and other examinations to determine the cause of her condition. Despite the initial lack of progress, Dina remained committed to finding a solution, driven by her love and concern for Abby’s well-being.

With the right treatment, Abby began to come out of her shell. She started playing with other dogs, sitting for treats, and showing excitement when her foster mom approached. Abby’s unique personality began to shine through. Her newfound appetite was an excellent sign, and she even tried to snatch Dina’s food as she ate. The once frightened and withdrawn puppy was now full of life and joy, her resilience and spirit winning the hearts of everyone around her. Abby’s transformation was a testament to the power of love and proper care, turning her heartbreaking start into a story of hope and happiness.

Dina decided to teach Abby how to play fetch and bought her a variety of toys. Abby’s playful and curious nature became more apparent as she delighted in taking the cotton out of pillows, going for walks, and running around. She loved to explore and smell everything around her, showcasing her unique personality.

Although Abby’s health improved, the scabs on her face caused her to lose her hair, leaving her head completely hairless. This, combined with her adult teeth growing in with an underbite, gave her a distinctive appearance that made her look like she was always smiling. Despite her unusual look, Abby’s joyful spirit and loving nature shone through, endearing her to everyone she met and proving that true beauty comes from within.

She was now a happy, playful, and loving dog who truly enjoyed her new life. Abby’s transformation was remarkable, showing the incredible impact of care and compassion. From learning to play fetch to exploring her surroundings with joy, Abby’s journey was a testament to her resilience and the unwavering support of her foster mom. Abby’s story is an inspiring reminder that every animal deserves a chance to thrive and be loved.
