When Animal Aid Unlimited, India received a call about a homeless dog with severe mange, they were not prepared for what they would find. The poor animal’s condition had deteriorated so badly, her skin looked as though it were covered in barnacles, like those on the bottom of boats in the ocean.

But rescuers refused to give up on the brave dog, who now goes by the name “Cherry.” After a much-needed bath, medical treatment, and plenty of TLC, Cherry made an amazing recovery, and is now in good health and good spirits.

Watch the video to see the amazing transformation that took just six weeks, but seems like a world of difference.
