A story as overwhelming as it is beautiful.
Faith was one of 4,000 dogs living in a crowded shelter in Ankara, Turkey, when a family decided to bring the dying puppy back with them.
An adoption that makes sense
In Turkey with her husband and two daughters, Mary Bryant-Carucci has always been committed to animals. It is therefore very natural that the mother and her daughters volunteered to work in a local shelter every Saturday in order to help as many dogs as possible.
When Mary and her daughters crossed paths with a litter of particularly sick puppies, they decided to give them a chance to live their last days in good conditions. So the family decided to welcome Faith, Hope, Chance and Grace. Unfortunately, only Faith survived for more than a few days, but she was in absolutely terrible condition and suffered from many health problems.
In fact, Faith was so weak that she rarely, if ever, left the box she had been brought in to her new home. She looked so sick that she didn’t want to do anything other than watch what was happening from her box.
Even though the whole family knew that Faith only had a few days, or weeks, to live, everyone fell in love with her from the first hugs. And little by little, Faith even got back on her feet.
One day, the family took Faith to the vet to have her distemper assessed. The vet wasn’t sure Faith was strong enough to survive treatment, but he thought it was worth a try. Mary wanted to do everything possible to help Faith.
But the bitch decided to fight the disease. Her family then decided to set up a real convalescence room for her in the bedroom of one of the family’s children so that she would be comfortable and would not see other dogs while she was still contagious.
The first month was very difficult for Faith who never gave up and the miracle happened: the vet announced after several weeks of treatment that everything was better!
Three years after this magnificent rescue, Faith was able to return to the United States with her new family to start a well-deserved new life, surrounded by people who love her!
