It is no secret that many of the purebred dogs that are sold daily come from dog breeding farms, where most of the females are fertilized over and over again, which allows a very lucrative business.
But, what happens with puppies that are born with a defect, or do not meet the appropriate characteristics to be sold at the high prices that are handled in the market?
The answer is simple, they are abandoned and in the best of cases they are given to anyone who wants them.
Unfortunately, they do not always fall into the best hands as in the case of Beaux Tox, a tender and loving Labrador who was born with a deformity in his skull, this made his face look completely different from other dogs of his breed. During pregnancy, his little brothers compressed him and his head developed into that shape.
At birth, nobody wanted to buy it because of its appearance until its first owner finally ended up giving it away.
He was given to a man who lived in nearby Austin, Texas and was initially named “Lucky”; However, this man had many cats that did not get along with Lucky and he ended up being moved to the backyard.
The little dog did not have any kind of comforts, he spent most of his time tied to a tree, he did not receive attention and he did not have a bed to rest.
Local rescue groups wanted to intervene, but after 5 years, Lucky didn’t know how to behave like an indoor dog.
He returned again and again to his first owner’s yard, until finally an angel crossed his path. A rescue group posted his photo on the Internet requesting a foster home and after several weeks he was seen by Jamie Hulit, a woman who loves animals, who encourages respect and rejects the injustices that are committed to them daily.
The moment she saw his photo, she knew it would help him and was willing to give him a better life.
Jamie contacted the people who had posted his photo and said she was willing to give it a home. After a few days, she was at the house of the man who had left Lucky for so long in his backyard.
“I wasn’t quite sure what I would find and discovered a thin, sick Labrador who needed a lot of help,” said Jamie.
“I didn’t care how sick he was, I just didn’t want him to keep going through different homes,” said the woman who lived in foster care for two years.
Jamie changed his name to Beaux Tox, and took him to the Hoegemeyer Animal Clinic in Kerrville, Texas, where he was diagnosed with malnutrition and the deadly “heartworm” parasite, plus he had a serious flea and mite problem. in his ears.
He was very weak and Dr. Jay Rydberg determined that he had a 50% chance of survival, his body would not withstand treatment for the parasite and he needed oxygen. One night Dr. Rydberg called Jamie to say that he might not make it, but he didn’t; Beaux Tox kept fighting and finally succeeded.
After a few weeks he gained a few kilos and although he lost his hearing in one of his ears due to the mites, he received his treatment and his health certificate.
Finally, she was able to take him home where an older brother, Riley, a 13-year-old Golden Retriever mix, was waiting for them. He has taught him how to behave inside the home.
Beaux Tox also received therapy and training to allow him to adjust to his new life and every effort has been worth it; he is a completely new and happy dog.
Jamie invested approximately $ 8,000 in the full recovery of this beautiful little dog that touched her heart.
He now has many canine and feline friends due to Jamie being a very active advocate. Also, he has a new rescued sister named Scout that he can play with, the three of them get along very well and give Riley some youth back.
Beaux Tox still has an affinity for the outdoors, but he learned to live indoors and enjoy the patio through the window.
A completely charming and inspiring story that shows that with love and dedication you can achieve the impossible. This little dog always had a lot to give with a cheerful and playful personality, but his appearance made him spend 5 years of his life in abandonment.
But Beaux Tox turned out to be a puppy-spirit fighter who rose from adversity thanks to this noble woman who trusted him.
Just look at the life he leads now, every effort was worth it:
