A $5.5 million project in central Florida has given a dog a new home.
Dorothy the Maltese was a stray when she wandered into the neighborhood last year and started eating trash, but her owners thought she might be a good pet for a new apartment.
They installed a new kitchen and bathroom for her, and put a balcony on her balcony so she could walk around it.
Dora was placed in a crate in her owner’s garage and they decided to renovate the house for the dog, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
She was given a new name and her owners got a new place to live in town, but the renovation was a slow process, said Michelle Dickson, Dora’s owner.
When the house finally opened, it had no lights, no air conditioning, and no carpet.
Dorsa had a new heart and now sleeps in a cage in the living room, and she spends about 90 minutes a day walking on her leash.
Doral says the $5,000 renovation was worth it because she feels much better.
She was not able to walk, eat or sleep.
