Mat Bettley spotted something strange running on the trail when he was off-roading in the West Desert near the Salt Flats in Utah in January 2018. He didn’t realize it at all at first because It looked too rough, but the closer he got to it, the more he discovered it was a dog, a dog that has no hair and seems to have been starved for a long time. That dog is absolutely in bad shape.
Bentley immediately understood that the dog needed help. He took her to the Utah Adoption Animal Clinic, where she was actively cared for and recuperated. She has a new name, Kelly. Despite going through turbulent circumstances, she is friendly and affectionate towards people
After three months of not only being treated with vets, but also sheltered and loved, it was time to find her a permanent home. Not long after, Kelly was adopted by Jamie Jacques and his family. Kelly gets used to her new home pretty quickly and even has a new friend, the dog Rocky, who’s older than her. They get along very well and can’t live without each other.
It’s really impossible to realize that Kelly was a hairless dog in the desert back then if we look at Kelly now. Jamie and her family will always be grateful that Bentley brought her to safety and helped her get the medical care she needed to save her life.
Bentley got the chance to see Kelly again more than a year after he saved her. He was shocked by her difference. With tears in his eyes, he told her how surprised he was at how positively she had changed over the past year. Jamie said: “It hurts so much to know what he did for her, because we don’t know how it would have turned out otherwise.”
