It's a sad day when you hear about people still breeding animals in an effort to sell them for a profit. It's an even sadder day when those say animals aren't what they hoped for, so they abandon them. And that is exactly what had happened to sweet Beaux, the Labrador...
He was born with a facial deformity because he was being squashed in his mother's womb as one of six pups.
However, the people who were breeding could not sell him because of his "Ugly" face, so he ended up living with a man who neglected him and left him outside for 5 years.
Jamie was undeterred by Beaux's desperate state and was determined to give him a second chance
She stated, "I didn't care how badly he might be ill".
"I just didn't want him to go into the foster system again and be returned...I wanted him to have stability and a place he knew was his home"
Due to neglect, Beaux was diagnosed with a chronic case of heartworms. Thankfully, with the help and intensive treatment by Dr. Jay Rydberg, Beaux was able to bet the odds.
He finds himself as another member of a very loving family, and a little brother to another Retreiver called Riley!
We are so happy that Beaux is now as happy as can be living life to it's fulliest!
