Found Starving in Mexican Streets, This Dog Has a New Life and New Look

Luna the dog, who was found starving to death in Mexico, is now healthy and happy, and looks a whole lot different - which is a good thing.

Luna was discovered in a Mexican backyard, starving and extremely emaciated, by photographer Tracey Buyce. Buyce is also a board member for Cats and Dogs International (CANDi) and was in Bufil, Mexico on a trip for one of the group’s spay and neuter clinics back in 2013.

Buyce had taken Luna’s photo as part of CANDi’s campaign that was aimed at documenting dogs who lived on the streets of the neighborhood. Although Buyce had taken many photographs of helpless dogs, something about Luna stood out.

“There was just something really soulful about her,” Buyce told The Dodo. “I just knew I couldn’t leave her there.”
