Living on the island of Bali, stray dogs are a familiar sight. But something about Hope made Rico pause.

“I don’t know what was special about her,” Rico told Bored Panda. “It’s about heart and feeling. I found her when I was on the way back home from work, she was in the middle of the street.”

He took her home and knew she didn’t have much longer to live without care. Despite her terrible condition, Hope’s eyes shined brightly.

Slowly but surely, Hope’s coat began to grow back and she began to put on weight. Her adorable personality began to emerge too.

Hope, too, is thrilled with her new life. She is now part of Rico’s family and adores being petted and getting attention.

It’s wonderful to see Hope so healthy after being so neglected. And it would not have happened had Rico not cared and rescued her.
