A poor little puppy suffering from advanced Mange, (an infestation of skin mites) was surrendered to a veterinary office.
Jessie DeFreitas decided to bring the pup home to foster its recovery.
“She needed constant care. I asked to foster the dog, “My mum asked if I was sure because we already have four cats and another rescue dog at home. But everyone knows I love animals. At the vets I’m constantly asking about people’s pets.”
Three month later, Tera, (named for being a little terror) made a full recovery and went from being a feisty scared little dog to a loving and affectionate ball of fluff!
“She’s recovered really well. You can see it in her eyes– she’s become happier and happier,” she said. “She’s amazing. She’s just the kindest and sweetest thing.”
