This is an inspiring story for all you kids on how one boy's determination changed the life of a street pooch.

Meet Lady Brown, she was rescued off the streets of Rajagiriya by the Embark team. She had a broken leg due to an accident and was in a lot of pain. The vets performed surgery on her to help her walk properly again. But the scars of her injury remained. Lady Brown had a limp and because she was picked up from the streets, she had no home to go back to. More than anything she was an adult dog and we understood that chances of her getting adopted were very small. But we were hopeful because she was a very gentle and a loving soul. She had gratitude in her eyes which could not be expressed in words. Days turned to weeks and months and we still had no sign of Browny being adopted. We began to loose hope…

That's when a young 13 year old boy walked in to Lady Brown's life and turned it the right side up! We are happy to say that Lady Brown did manage to work her charm and managed to win the heart of Sithara and his family. And the rest is history… Today she is a happy girl showered with love and affection.

We want to thank Sithara Hapuhinna and his Parents for adopting Lady Brown. What is so special about her is that she is an adult dog and had a slight disability. And quite often, there is a very small chance of them getting adopted. But thanks to this family we now have hope again. A Dog's disability and age really don't matter; what matters is how much you are willing to love them, and it's never too late to lend a helping hand to change their lives for the better.

Imperfections are only a matter of the mind…
