This Strange Rescue Dog Is Turning Heads, But Still Just Wants Your Love And Affection.
They say you should never judge a book by its cover, and in this case, you shouldn't judge a dog by its fur. When this little pup named Lisa arrived at a shelter in California, volunteers worried that she might not be adopted: After all, she was kind of strange-looking.
It wasn't entirely natural, either: Lisa had scars on her face and inflamed eyelids from the abuse and neglect she suffered before. Even after having surgery to correct it, her strange looks simply couldn't be ignored. However, one family saw past Lisa's exterior and changed her life forever. Read her amazing story below.
Despite her odd looks, you can tell from this picture that Lisa is a pretty happy, lovable puppy.
The volunteers at the shelter said she loved other dogs, loved giving kisses, and wasn't frightened of people (despite her sordid past).
Their main goal was to find a family that could look past her scars and love her for the sweetheart she really is.
Little did she know, Lisa's family was on their way.
When Christine Doblar and her family lost their chihuahua, they wanted to adopt another dog soon after. They headed to the shelter, and that's where they spotted Lisa. They realized she looked a little weird, but there was something about her personality that charmed them.
They adopted her the same day, renamed her Lucky, and introduced her into their home. According to Doblar, Lucky is adjusting quite nicely - and she is still as sweet as can be.
