If you ask people who have rescued animals from dire situations, they generally say that the animals seem to know that they’ve been saved. This puppy’s reaction when he is adopted by his rescuer is incredible! There’s no doubt that little Mojo knows exactly how lucky he is.
Joey Wagner, an animal lover, was a member of the team that created the Baie Ste. Marie Animal Society in Nova Scotia. The nonprofit animal society helps to rescue and rehome animals. But this one rescue case touched Wagner’s heart more than any other.
Wagner first met Mojo, a pit bull/American Staffordshire terrier mix, when the puppy was just three months old. Mojo’s previous owner had tried to save the dog, but Mojo had severe demodectic mange and was near death, according to Mojo’s Facebook page. Mojo’s condition was so severe, he needed urgent medical help. Wagner took the puppy right to the veterinary hospital for treatment. Still, Mojo’s future was uncertain.
Thanks to the proper care Mojo survived, but he wasn’t put up for adoption because of how severely the mange had affected the dog. Mojo’s hair didn’t grow back, and you’ll see in the video below that he’s wearing a T-shirt to protect his sensitive skin.
But Mojo needn’t have worried; he would have a home with the very man who rescued him. Wagner returned for Mojo once the puppy was healthy enough, and judging by Mojo’s reaction, he was elated to go home with Wagner.
Take a look at their emotional reunion in the video below!
