A stray dog's life is not easy.

This five-week old puppy was suffering on the streets too, until fate decided to intervene.
Although partially burned and lacking fur, the bald pupper's struggles were about to come to an end.
When someone found the dog, named Pixie, wandering in their yard, they decided to help her by calling few people from a nearby shelter.
Daphne Bragg, Pixie's foster mom, fell in love with the little puppy as soon as she saw her.
When I saw her, I was like, Oh my god! You are coming with me.
Immediately after having her first medical bath, Pixie's foster mom realised that she was too small for the bathtub.
Eventually, the scabs and wounds started to heal. Pixie looked bald before hair started re-growing on her little body.
The little one also made a few friends and learnt some much needed social skills.
Here Pixie's life changed when she met Elliot for the first time.
Elliot had a similar past and was super tiny when he was brought home.
Just like Pixie, Elliot had to work super hard to grow up into a wonderful and healthy dog.
Now as the elder doggo in the house, Elliot took over Pixie's responsibilities as remembering his own struggle phase.
Ultimately, Pixie was back to normal with a full coat of fur after months of rehabilitation and recovery.
The story, though a roller-coaster ride, tells us that love and adequate care can simply make a difference in anyone's life, whether a distressed animal or a human being going through a rough patch.
