The story of this dog:
This beautiful little dog was abandoned by her master when she fell ill. She had a very severe case of Demodex mange.
But instead of taking him to the vet and giving him the right drugs, they threw her in the street as if her life meant nothing. Her scabies then got worse as she struggled alone.

Food was scarce and the dog had to use all his energy to find what he could. Her scabies was so severe that she developed secondary skin infections. Her skin was incredibly painful. She had sores everywhere and all her hair fell out. She was also emaciated. When they found the dog, she was so tired she couldn’t even stand for very long.
Avan North Animals heard about the dog and tried to help her. But she was smart and evaded capture again and again. Eventually, a couple living in Iran saw the animal walking down the street and contacted the rescue group. This couple then wanted to help the dog and decided to call her Nora. Also, they were so touched by the condition of this abandoned dog that they promised that if the rescue group succeeded in saving Nora, then they would give her a forever home.
With determination, Nora was finally caught and taken to the vet. His skin had hardened like a stone. The vet, almost in tears, explained that Nora had the worst case of scabies he had ever seen. She was also malnourished and in a lot of pain.
Once Nora is safe with the rescue party and medical team, it was time to treat his scabies. Antibiotics and painkillers were given to him. But above all, they had to give him daily medicated baths. The treatment allowed her skin to soften and the hard scales, which looked like potato chips, finally fell off. His skin was raw underneath, but it would heal quickly.
Nora was covered in blankets while she slept to keep her warm. During the day, she wore special shirts to protect her raw skin from the sun until her fur grew back. Amazingly, with the right medications and a good diet, Nora’s condition improved quickly!
Nora’s new owners took her home when she was released from the hospital. Nora’s appearance now, compared to before, is a real miracle – you won’t believe it! Every life is precious and worth saving – we are so happy for Nora and her new family!
