     A severely malnourished puppy found next to a road in Moultrie last week is doing much better now.

This is what Lucky looked like a week ago, skin and bones.
Now Lucky is a much healthier and happier pup.

"We've had lucky now for 8 days and within those 8 days, he's put on a little bit of weight,
said Dawn Blanton, Moultrie-Colquitt County Humane Society Director. We've had several days where we've been doing a little bit of physical therapy with him, getting him out, getting him walking."

Lucky still has a long way to go. He barely weighed 20 pounds when he was rescued. He's put on about 4 pounds and has a new attitude.

"He actually has a little pep in his step now when he's walking,
said Blanton. He looks like a little deer as he's out there galloping around."

Blanton says all Lucky needed was a little "TLC."

"It's remarkable what Love can do,
said Blanton.  Just giving a love, a little bit of food, a little bit of water, a little bit of care to a dog that is what it can do for him."

 Blanton believes the folks at the Humane Society are the lucky ones after finding Lucky.

"We may never know what happened to Lucky, how he got in that situation,
said Lucky. We're just glad we found him when we did."

Lucky will have his new weigh-in at the vet on Friday. He still isn
t available for adoption. The Humane Society is taking up donations for Lucky's medical and food expenses. You can make donations through paypal by sending them to
