If you were looking for some feel-good news today, then you've just found it.
When dog groomer Kari Falla saw a heart-wrenching Facebook post about a little dog abandoned on a busy road in Florida, she knew she had to help. The poor thing was in a bad way with incredibly matted fur.
Kari, who runs the company BGE Grooming, offered her services in the middle of the night. That's when she met Lucky for herself...
Lucky's fur was so tangled, it was impossible to properly see the dog underneath. He was in a lot of pain, flea-infested and wasn't able to walk. A lead was entwined within the the mess of his fur.
'It was seriously the most disturbing situation I've ever seen in my life,' Kari told The Dodo. 'His whole body was like a mummified cast.'
Kari opened up her pet salon to give Lucky the haircut he needed. After getting in touch with the person who had found the pup, she asked them to bring him in. Kari did this all for free, at midnight.
Lucky's grooming job was a mammoth task and took Kari around three hours to complete, followed by a soothing bath.
Just when we thought Lucky's tale of unfortunate events was over, vets later confirmed he was also deaf and blind but, as any dog person will understand, that certainly doesn't make him unlovable.
Lucky is now being given all the love and affection he deserves at a foster home, before hopefully going on to a forever home.
