Life isn’t always fair for some dogs, especially those born into irresponsible breeding practices that leave them abandoned and struggling on the streets.
In California, a heart-wrenching story unfolds as a litter of puppies is callously discarded by a backyard breeder. A compassionate woman receives a distressing call about a puppy, just three days old, and is moved to take immediate action. The entire litter is clinging to life, desperately in need of urgent assistance.
Clanay Reza, an empathetic animal lover and independent rescuer in California, answers the plea for help from a breeder’s neighbor. The scene she encounters is heartbreaking, puppies left to fend for themselves under their deceased mother, who bled to death. Among them, Lucky stands out as the weakest, no larger than a baby hamster.
Despite the grim prognosis, Reza refuses to give up on Lucky. She tirelessly feeds him every twenty minutes, sacrificing sleep in those critical first days. The uncertainty of Lucky’s survival hangs heavy, but Reza remains steadfast.
Lucky’s siblings don’t make it, leaving him as the sole survivor with a fighting chance.
Weeks of relentless care pass, and Lucky’s life is no longer hanging in the balance. However, ongoing health issues emerge. His eyes open to reveal a diagnosis of a yeast infection and corneal ulcer, leading to the removal of one eye.
At ten weeks old, Lucky is diagnosed with albinism, a result of a recessive gene caused by inbreeding. His first year is a challenging journey, marked by loss and health hurdles, but his will to live remains unbroken.
Now, at eight years old, Lucky has emerged victorious. He’s transformed from a vulnerable pup into the quirkiest, fluffiest, and most cuddly member of the family. Albinism may have posed challenges, but Lucky’s indomitable spirit prevails.
Despite the hardships, Lucky is thriving. His family adores him, and he reciprocates with boundless love. His joy knows no bounds, especially with the addition of a new baby sister.
From a bleak start to a life filled with love and companionship, Lucky is proof that resilience and a fighting spirit can turn an abandoned pup into the luckiest dog on Earth.
