Woman melts hearts rescuing fluffy dog cowering in corner of room

Ducky had been too afraid to move until a woman took a chance on her.Ducky is a dog who had a difficult childhood.Ducky lived in a room filled with animal waste for at least six years.But, eventually, someone came to her rescue: Elli, the founder of Sky Sanctuary Rescue.

Ducky shared that room with more than 20 other animals.She was never touched or loved on, and she never had the opportunity to run and play as a dog should.”When I walked into the bedroom, I saw her in the corner, her little eyes just looking up at me for help,”Elli explained to The Dodo.”She looked into my soul and said, ‘Please get me out of here!'”

That’s precisely what Elli did.Elli took Ducky to get cleaned up right after she was rescued.She had to be shaved to get rid of the thick fur mats that had formed on her body.”She really just kind of came to life as soon as we got those mats off,” Elli said.

Ducky’s spirits had obviously been lifted as well.Ducky was overjoyed to arrive at Elli’s house, which also housed four other large female dogs, because she had previously lived in a house with so many pets.Elli was concerned about Ducky’s reaction to the new environment, but it turned out to be “kind of magical.”

“She walked in and you could instantly see a sign of relief in her because she adores other animals,” Elli explains.”There was an immediate connection.Not so much with me as with my animals.”

Elli discovered that Ducky was very fearful and nervous after spending some time with him.Ducky, on the other hand, grew in confidence and learned to trust more with some love, tenderness, and training.”Ducky’s personality has changed immensely since we first got her; I would say she found her voice after three weeks,” Elli said.”She started vocalizing what she wanted and just playing, and she became really goofy, and she’s just become such a happy girl with the other animals.”

Elli couldn’t be happier.”She’s making great strides,” Eli wrote on Sky Sanctuary Rescue’s Facebook page.”I was so proud yesterday that it brought me to tears.”

Ducky will be placed for adoption once she has completed her training.”I believe the best type of family for Ducky would be someone who is dedicated to her needs,” Elli said.Ducky would benefit from a home with other animals as well as someone who is patient and will provide Ducky with the care she requires to overcome the trauma of neglect.”It’s amazing what a little time, patience, and a lot of love can accomplish!”This dog deserves the best that life has to offer!”wrote a Facebook follower.
