Man rescues sick stray puppy in the nick of time

This little furball is so lucky to have found this family.

When a car mechanic first encountered the sick puppy, the little one was infected with mange and in desperate need of care. Fortunately, he fed the small dog and called Hope for Paws, who picked up the surprisingly happy pup.

The compassionate rescuer from Hope for Paws secured a “lucky leash” around him and guided him into the car. He even took time to give him some extra pets and named the little dog Aoki.

Back at the shelter, the veterinarians discovered that the puppy not only had mange. He also had an overbite that would require a dental procedure to correct. With no microchip, the pup also did not have a home.

Thankfully, their friends at Foxy and the Hounds Dog Rescue stepped in to help care for the recovering pup and get him ready to find his forever home with a new family.

Safely off the streets, Aoki was able to act like a puppy again, but his recovery also required a lot of rest. Finally, just before the winter holidays, Aoki found his forever home.

Aoki’s new home was with a little boy and his mom. The puppy was free to play and run around the yard with his boy and his new, loving family.

Thanks to the help of the mechanic and the volunteers at both Foxy and the Hounds Dog Rescue and Hope for Paws, Aoki was now in a place where she could live the happy, pain-free life she deserved.
