Milhet’s nephew suggested they return with a car, but that wasn’t good enough for Milhet.
“She’s so sweet, I couldn’t leave her there,” Milhet added. “I didn’t have the heart — and her tail was wagging.”
She put the battered husky on the back of her horse, and they rode home. Milhet bathed the dog, whom she named Lucky, and started to cut back her matted fur.
Underneath, the dog’s body was covered in puncture wounds and small lacerations, which Milhet assumed were from being trapped in the wire cage. Though Lucky was clearly in pain, her tail never stopped wagging.
