Mikita is a hairless dog that lived on the streets, namely on a reservation in South Dakota, United States. When a rescuer from Lightshine Canine first found her, her situation was concerning since her skin was too red, as if it were flesh, she was too hungry, and she couldn’t walk.
Because Mikita was missing so much hair at the time, the man who rescued her couldn’t even explain what breed of dog she was. A volunteer with Happy Tails Rescue chose to foster the dog and began treating her for mange.
Gradually, strands of gray and white hair began to emerge around her body, and they noted that she was becoming older, despite the fact that she still had a long way to go.
When Jessi Sova learnt about Mikita’s tale, she had been looking for a partner for her rescued Husky dog for many days. Jessi stumbled across a Facebook post about Mikita’s dilemma while searching the internet and felt she wanted to see her straight immediately.
According to Jessi, who spoke to The Dodo,
“I received my application for adoption approval and set up a meeting.” She was a tiny little creature with the loveliest little face. My kid and I both fell in love with her when we met her ».
The dog’s fortunes appeared to turn when a woman agreed to adopt her and give her a lifelong home, but she still faced a struggle. Mikita’s recovery was sluggish, but Jessi noticed something was amiss with her back since she wasn’t moving well.
Mikita’s look on her small face suggested that anytime she wanted to play or it was time to go to bed, it was a very painful event for her.
Jessi would wake up numerous times a night to find out what she needed, and it was like having a baby in the house.
Jessie had this to say:
“I awoke one night to her crying because she couldn’t get her rear legs under her to stand up. We were both taken to the emergency vet by a buddy.”
Mikita was diagnosed with discoenpondylitis, an uncommon infection that affects the vertebrae of animals, after undergoing various medical procedures. The dog began antibiotic therapy, and nothing could stop her from becoming a joyful animal from that point on.
His gorgeous gray and white fur continued to grow at a quick rate, and he was always wanting to have fun and play with his family, as it should have been.
