Meet Kurt, The Plucky Pup Capturing Hearts And Beating Odds –

For animal lovers, pictures like these can be tough to take. Unfortunately, for those who work with animals, it's a sight that they have to witness, from time to time, in order to help these animals recover from such conditions, if possible.
This little pup showed up to the Humane Society Waterville Area a few months ago, in pretty rough shape.
According to folks working at the shelter,
"Kurt came in at 12 weeks as a surrender completely covered in mange from head to toe. Due to the severity of the mange, Kurt's skin started to blister and scab over from the irritation of the untreated mange. The next day we were able to get Kurt in to see a Vet to start him on a treatment plan for his mange and to get him on the road to recovery."
"This road to recovery was not going to be a short one as the next two weeks consisted of medicated baths and lots of medication to help treat. During this process, Kurt came down with a secondary infection that caused him to break with a fever and congestion which only meant more medications and longer recovery. Almost 3 weeks later Kurt is finally near the light at the end of the recovery tunnel. This resilient puppy has new hair re-growth, lots of energy, and some of the highest spirits."
But with hard work, caring hands, and a lot of plucky perseverance, this determined little dog is doing much better, I'm glad to report.
