When Skye was found wandering the streets of Texas by animal control officers, she was not looking so great. In fact, the one year old husky mix looked downright scary to the observer. The poor pup was covered in mange, which caused her to lose a large portion of her normally snow white, fluffy fur. Not only did she have Mange, but Skye was also suffering from a tick-borne disease and she was quite emaciated, too. She was taken to a local shelter and immediately placed on a euthanasia list. Skye had found herself in a shelter that is notoriously known as the highest kill shelter in the Untied States. This particular shelter does not have the financial means to assist dogs in need of medical care, so they simply place them on a euthanasia list.
The staff did everything they could to save Skye though, and contacted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC to see if they could help her. The group immediately stepped up to save her and picked her up the following day so she could begin her much needed medical treatment. She was sent to a foster home in Texas for a few weeks to begin recovery and then she went to a second foster home in New York. She officially became a foster failure there, because her foster mom decided to adopt her within one day of meeting Skye.
Skye now lives in a home with little human siblings and little dog siblings, too. She fits right in with her new family and has never been happier—or healthier. Her mange has completely healed, revealing the thick, fluffy snow white coat she was always meant to have. It was a long road for Skye to go from an unwanted, sick dog wandering the streets to her life now, where she is a much loved, beautiful member of her family.
