Skye the one-year-old Husky mix had been on her own for months.
Nobody knew how she ended up alone on the streets of Palm Valley, Texas, but one thing was for sure: she was in bad shape. The poor dog was covered in mange, severely underweight, and had a tick-borne disease.
Skye was picked up off the street and brought to a shelter with one of the highest kill rates in the United States. Since she was so sick, she was immediately placed on the euthanasia list.
The shelter Skye was at didn’t have the resources to care for a sick dog. But workers at the shelter fell in love with her, and they wanted to give her another chance at life. And so, they contacted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.
“The shelter is the highest kill shelter in the country,” Stacey Silverstein, cofounder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, told The Dodo. “The protocol at the shelter is that medical dogs get euthanized right away because they don’t have the means or the space or anything to treat them.”
Silverstein immediately said she would take in Skye. A volunteer for the organization picked Skye up that same day.
Skye went into boarding while volunteers looked for the right foster home for her. Soon after that, Skye went into a great foster home in Texas. A few weeks later, she moved to a foster home in New York. This home was supposed to be temporary, but Skye’s new mom fell in love with her. She asked Rescues Dog Rock NYC if she could adopt Skye, and they said yes!
“She [the mom] has got little kids and little dogs, and [Skye] just kind of fit in perfectly, like it was meant to be,” Silverstein said. “She’s an incredible dog.”
Skye quickly adjusted to her new home. She loves playing with her three little terrier siblings.
Skye also loves goofing around with her human sister.
Skye’s fur grew back, and soon, she had a brilliant white coat. It’s amazing to see how much she transformed in such a short time!
To celebrate Skye finding a new home, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC shared before-and-after photos of her on their Facebook page.
