Mugsy is one of those pets that, looking at him, you can deduce that she had a painful past and that his heart is broken. A cute girl that inspired and mobilized thousands of people. This is her impressive story.
This lovely dog lived with her family in Iran, where they called her Hapoochi (small dog in Iran). But at an unfortunate moment in her life, the worst happened: a terrible acid attack completely disfigured her.
How and why she was attacked in this way is unknown. Its only known that she had been attacked with a corrosive substance.
The accident caused Hapoochi to lose an eye, nose and part of an ear.
The truth is that the dog needed emergency surgery to survive. But his family did not have enough economic assets to meet the high cost of all the treatments Hapoochi needed. It was then that, in their deep pain, they decided to put her to sleep, they had no choice.
Fortunately, though, a loving soul, a veterinary volunteer from the Persian Paws Rescue animal rescue organization, appeared in time to save the dog’s life.
The girl was only one and a half months old and the vet decided to take care of the expenses on his own. He began to completely remove the unrecoverable eye to save the little dog from all the pain it was causing.
When her life was no longer in danger, she was taken for adoption and her story reached the ear of Sam Taylor, a young woman from Canada. Immediately, she knew she had to try.
“She looks like Voldemort, but she has the heart of Harry Potter and her friends. The online photos were very, very graphic. I read the story and said to myself: Oh, I really want to help this dog! Now she’s spoiled and much loved, ”recognizes Sam.
Then this warrior had the opportunity of a new home and traveled from Iran to Canada 10,000 km to be part of a new family, where she would receive all the love and affection. But Sam knew he had a whole journey ahead.
To begin with, Sam wanted to change her name so that all of her past was left behind and decided to call her Mugsy.
She underwent several surgeries that allowed her to breathe better and others to repair ear damage. Everything was to improve your quality of life, however, her appearance will not change anymore. And that’s the most exciting part of the story, Sam loves her as she is, because not even Mugsy herself is aware of all the kindness and tenderness inside her.
Sam proved to be a homeowner who doesn’t care if she has to sell all her belongings to improve Mugsy’s life.
He revealed that the total cost of pending surgeries for the dog totals $ 10,000, so he created a GoFundMe page, unaware that thousands of people would be so moved by his story. You can also help her by clicking here.
