Augustus was a stray dog, so h.o.r.r.i.b.l.y ne.glec.ted that he didn’t look like a dog at all. In fact, no one could tell what kind of animal he was!
But once the amazing folks at Heart of Alabama Save Rescue Adopt (HASRA) saw his photo, they brought him in to begin his new life.
Auggie had to be hospitalized and treated for weeks. He required antibiotics and a daily gel treatment to peel off the layers of “potato chip-like” scales that formed on his coat.
Auggie was transferred to the HASRA sanctuary and continued with daily oil treatments and baths; he loved the coconut oil rubdowns and started to feel comfort again.
Despite a lifetime of pain and n.e.g.l.e.c.t, Auggie would undergo his daily treatments while looking back at his heroes with eyes full of gratitude and love.
The more he recovered, the more he revealed himself to be the most loving pup.
When the staff started a Facebook page for Auggie, animal lovers around the world fell in love and followed his progress.
Auggie has since been adopted by a woman named Jordan. She feels blessed to be the lucky one who got to adopt this living miracle.
Remember, no one had a clue what Auggie was supposed to look like, free of the scales and painful infections.
When you see Auggie’s mind-blowing transformation at the 1:10 mark, you’ll be shocked to see this beautiful black and white Border Collie mix. So gorgeous!
Augustus’ story is one that must be told, so please SHARE it with your friends on Facebook!
