Bali, a small island in Indonesia, has approximately 4.22 million people living on it. It also has over 400,000 homeless dogs, roaming the streets, falling ill and living a terrible life without love or stability. Animal rescue organizations like BARC (Bali Dog Adoption Rehabilitation Centre) have their work cut out for them. It’s not uncommon to see homeless dogs in the streets in Bali… but Frankie is an entirely different story. A passer by discovered him on the street in such critical condition, he barely looked like a dog. He was a small, hairless and deformed puppy. He was immediately taken to the BARC facility, where he experienced a transformation you won’t believe.
Frankie the pup was mange, scabies, intestinal worms and calcium deficiency.
For months, BARC workers helped Frankie heal.
They treated his various infections and deformities.
Frankie had to wear casts in order to heal his deformed front legs.
Things seemed rough for Frankie, but he was given plenty of love every step of the way.
(He was also given lots of calcium supplements.)
And not long after his casts were removed…
He was a happy, loving puppy.
This is a transformation you’ll want to see with your own eyes. Check out the BARC rescue video of Frankie. The energy and joy he shows after healing is enough to bring you to tears.
