While spending a relaxing afternoon at home, this couple saw something through the window.
Living near a forest area, they usually saw deer, but this time they saw an abandoned dog.
The dog looked very ill and starved. The couple decided to go after him and searched for hours.
They finally found him and immediately took him to the vet.
Vet was not sure
The abandoned dog was skin and bones, and severely dehydrated. The vet wasn’t sure that he would survive.
The couple found it so hard to believe that an animal could be in such a horrible condition.
Nevertheless, they fell in love with him, the moment they first saw him. Even after all he had been through, his personality was still loving and trusting. After being abandoned and neglected, he continued to trust people.
His first days in the hospital were very uncertain, but after two days, he slowly started to come around.
The initial veterinarian bills were very high, reaching almost $2000. The couple opened a fundraising account to save Billy. At this point, they had already chosen a name for him.
They raised more than $2500 to pay his medical bills.
His new mom, Krista, was very sure that she wanted to adopt this abandoned dog.
Billy still had a long road of recovery ahead of him. The damage to his body made him very fragile.
Krista had to do physiotherapy with him for about a month. With a lot of love and support, he started gaining strength and weight.
But the good news doesn’t stop there! Billy also came into a family of two brothers, Remington and Diesel. They all became very good friends, but Billy developed a special bond with Remington.
Today, Billy is rejuvenated and full of life. He embraces every single day with love and zest. Every morning, he wakes up his mom and lets her know that he is so happy to be around.
Krista said that Billy inspires people daily with his story. Coming from an awful place, close to death, he recuperated, embracing every single day.
