This mange-ridden pup has been given a second chance thanks to some love from an animal rescue in Texas.
Kristy the dog was scheduled to be euthanized at a kill shelter but Dr Karri from Vet Ranch Rescue thought she could be saved.
Dr.Karri tells INSIDE EDITION that the dog, a Great Dane-lab mix, appeared to have accepted her fate and given up hope.
In video footage, she looks withdrawn. She also had mange with a severe skin infection and was loaded with intestinal parasites and fleas.
But after many baths and medication treatments she began to improve.
Dr Karri said: “There is a point where you can tell these animals have accepted their fate and given up hope. She was there. Scared and depressed. It only took a few days of attention for her to realize we were there to help and she turned into a puppy again!"
Just three weeks after she was rescued, her personality completely changed.
Dr Karri added: "She never knew she was ugly! She is incredibly smart and loves to learn new tricks!”
Eight weeks later she was enjoying the outdoors.
