Sickly puppy can’t contain his excitement when his rescuer returns to adopt him


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. Watching this puppy’s reaction when his rescuer returns to adopt him, 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 one particular rescue case would touch Wagner’s life.

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. Because Mojo’s condition was so severe, Wagner took the puppy right to the veterinary hospital for treatment. Still, Mojo’s future was uncertain.
