: We found our Zoe on the side of the road, hairless and starving on the way to scope out a wedding venue. She was covered in sores, had swollen feet, and was extremely malnourished, but as soon as I opened the door she ran right up and wagged her tail. My boyfriend (now husband) didn't want me to touch her because she looked so terrible and we didn't know what she may have, so I wasn't able to get her into the car. I cried on the way home and couldn't stop thinking about her, so I went back the next day hoping I would see her again and she was lying in the same spot, curled in a ball on the side of the road. I scooped her up and put her in my car and took her to a local shelter because there were other dogs at my house and we didn't know what she had just yet or if my parents would even let me keep her. I had to leave her there to get checked at the vet the next day. They told me they didn't have much hope that she would survive and I cried like this had been my dog for years. The next day I called over and over all day until someone could tell me how she was and when I finally got the answer that she was doing GREAT and they had started her on treatment for mange, worms, and antibiotics for her wounds I couldn't have been more excited. I knew then that this HAD to be my dog. She has come SUCH a long way and we couldn't imagine life without her now-- All she needed was a little love.
