This Dog Was Found Extremely Malnourished, A Few Months Later He’s Unrecognizable As He Recovers And Then Finds A Forever Home

Without a doubt, one’s dog is certainly the best of friends that you can have. However, as we are continuously exposed to a lot of dog stories on social media, some of them tend to be rather sad, especially the ones revolving around homeless dogs. Thankfully, most of these stories do get a happy ending with the poor pups getting adopted after all of their struggles.

Today, we’d love to share with you the story of Coco who is a charming little dog who unfortunately fell into the hands of bad people.

Meet Coco, a dog who was neglected and abandoned on a river bank

It is speculated that Coco was either terribly mistreated by the community or by his so-called “owners” who had just left him to starve

Coco was terribly malnourished to the point where one could see his bones poking through the skin

Coco’s body was extremely thin, it was evident that he hadn’t eaten in a long time as he fought to survive

The dog was covered with fleas and other parasites on top of being extremely weak physically

Luckily enough, Coco was spotted by kind strangers and was then taken to the DELKA Veterinary Hospital in Nuevo León, Mexico where he made a full recovery

Human nature. At its worst, monstrous; at its best, miraculous. I'm glad Coco has found love and kindness with his new family. He has finally come home.
