Bali—the name itself successfully brings images of breathtaking beaches and lush natural beauty. What we do not imagine is something else that Bali has more in number—the stray dogs.

A huge population of stray dogs wander all over the streets of Bali looking for food. They are so many in number that most of them go to sleep forever, just because of starvation.

However, among this nightmare that the poor strays have to face, an angel exists. 26-year-old Rico Soegiarto from Denpasar, the capital of the country, works as a rescuer and helps rescue dogs, rehabilitate them, and also re-home them.

Rico met a severely malnourished one day while on a walk. Although the Husky was pitiably skinny, she had eyes that shone like stars, which was the evidence of her will to live.

On getting closer, Rico noticed that the poor dog had only patches of hair left on her body. Nevertheless, she gave back as much affection as Rico gave to her. As an act of honouring the dog’s will to live, Rico named her “Hope” and took her back home for a brand-new life.

After arriving at home, Hope got a nice, hot bath and a lot of food to fill her tummy. In the end, Hope also got lots of cuddles from Rico as well. Rico says that Hope loves eating a lot of cookies and getting a lot of pets.

Hope also has four other dog siblings which Rico had rescued earlier. As expected, hope was an instant friend of all of her dog siblings.

After being treated with all the love and care in the world, Hope has now transformed into the most gorgeous Huskey. However, one thing about her has remained constant—her shiny, blue eyes.

If it weren’t for Rico, Hope would probably have faced a terrible fate by now. Thankfully, Rico came to Hope’s life just in time.
