One little dog almost died because of the carelessness of her owner. This person dyed the pup’s hair purple, and it almost cost her her life. Violet is an adorable Maltese mix with a shining personality. Her beautiful white fur, however, was apparently not good enough for her former owner. The person tried to dye the dog’s hair purple, using chemicals that were intended for humans.
This horrific “makeover” left the pup with severe burns. She was then abandoned, left for dead. Her body was covered in burns, and one of her eyes was swollen shut. The shelter workers were afraid the dog wouldn’t survive. The next morning, Violet was feeling much better. She offered up kisses to anyone in sight, but she still had a long way to go before she was back to good health. The dog underwent treatment for three months. As she healed, she broke more and more out of her shell. Finally, the day came when the staff could remove the bandages.
They breathed a sight of relief as they saw the gorgeous dog that stood in front of them. Some of the dye still speckles Violet’s fur, and she still has scars from the chemical burns, but she is much happier and healthier than she was before the shelter found her. Once the dog was recovered, it didn’t take her long to find a forever home. She now lives a loving owner who would never hurt her.
