Dog frequently have uncontrollable reactions of joy, when reunited with their human companions. And when it comes to their rescuers, things are no different.
Maybe that’s the way they say thank you or maybe it’s an incredibly joy given by the feeling of getting a second chance to life. Whatever it would be, it only shows one thing, and that’s just how special creatures, dog are.
Mojo the pit bull pup amstaff mix up was only 3 months old when his life was already at threat. Suffering from severe demodectic mange, the pooch had only hours to live when he was rescued by Joey Wagner.
One kind human was trying to take care of the pup but Mojo’s case was too severe, so Wagner took him straight to an animal hospital. With extensive care, the pooch got better and adoption requests started coming. However, the severity of his condition made it impossible for ordinary adoptions, and so that’s when Wagner stepped in again.
The puppy was seriously dehydrated and covered in mite bites, which made him scratch excessively and lose most of his fur.
Though the puppy was weeping in pain Joey knew he had the heart of a warrior.
Despite the doctors only giving him a few hours to live, the pup became stronger with each passing day. Joey knew he would survive and decided to name him Mojo.
In the following weeks, Mojo’s condition improved significantly, but he wasn’t out of the woods quite yet:
Even though Mojo was let down by humans in the past, he never held a grudge against them and had plenty of love to spread around.
When Mojo fully recovered and it was time to find him a forever home, Joey and Leta were first in line to fill the paperwork, but even they couldn’t have predicted his reaction. As soon as Joey walked into the vet’s office Mojo jumped at him in joy wiggling his cute tiny tale and kissing his rescuer’s face. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
2 years passed since then and Mojo’s fur has never fully returned, however that doesn’t stop him from living a happy life with his big family.
