A couple was driving late one night near Oviedo, Florida, when they noticed an abandoned dog on the side of the road. His fur was severely matted. He was barely responsive and had clearly been neglected for most of the 4 years he had been alive. Unable to keep him overnight, the couple put out a desperate plea on social media – a plea which was answered by dog groomer Kari Falla.
The poor pup needed urgent care, so Falla rushed to her salon, BGE Grooming, and opened for business at midnight to take him in.
Working tirelessly until 3 in the morning, Falla managed to fully shave and bathe him. And then took him to the vet as soon as she could.
Lucky, as the dog is now named, was found to be deaf and blind, but is recovering successfully in a foster home.
