Rico Soegiarto noticed a severely malnourished, hairless Siberian Husky half-buried in the road while he was returning home from work in Denpasar, Bali. The dog had wounds all over her body, making it difficult to identify her breed. Rico was compelled to rescue her upon seeing her condition.
Already having four rescue dogs at home, Rico couldn’t resist falling in love with this puppy the moment he saw her. He named her Hope due to her bright blue eyes that shone with optimism despite her poor state.
Rico found Hope and brought her home, and her recovery began. To assist her fur to regrow, Rico gave her a lot of medication baths and ate a lot of food for weight gain. Nurseing Hope back to health was an incredible job by Rico.
Hope’s metamorphosis was complete a year later, and she is now such an appealing, disease-free Husky. Rico not only rescued and transformed Hope, but he also decided to take her on as his new pet.
Hope now lives a happy life with Rico and his family in Bali and is enjoying her ‘second chance’ at life!
