A heartfelt moment, Meets the Person Who Stopped the Pit Bull Puppy’s Death
Even while it might be difficult at times, there are many lovely moments that can only be made possible by the selfless efforts of volunteers.
Joey Wagner, a marine biologist from Nova Scotia in Canada, volunteers at the Baie Ste Marie Animal Society. A pit bull mix dog who had been cruelly mistreated and needed some tender loving care was brought to Joey’s attention in 2013. Joey showed up just as the dog was going to die.
Joey and the rescue crew took the puppy, whose they called Mojo, to Parade Street Vet, PEI Small Animal Hospital for treatment of acute dehydration and demodectic mange. He had totally lost all of his fur and was covered in mite bites by the time he was three months old. As Joey watched, the puppy’s mange was becoming worse as a result of malnutrition and his unhygienic living conditions.
In a Facebook post, Joey said, “When Mojo was surrendered, it was a very short process and a very emotional time.”
As Mojo battled for his life, Joey and his wife Leta fell in love with him. Despite the terrible suffering he had through, Mojo shown a profound ability for compassion and forgiveness. After hearing about his problems, a lot of people asked for his assistance.
As soon as Mojo spotted Joey, his little tail began to wag. Joey writhed his entire body to get closer to his new father, his face covered in kisses. Joey couldn’t help but grin as Mojo thanked him for giving him another opportunity at life.
Joey and Mojo’s joyful reunion has been enjoyed by the globe for more than seven years. Mojo is happy and well-cared for now that he is a member of Joey and Leta’s team. He never entirely grew his fur back, but he doesn’t seem to mind. Since then, the Wagner family has used his tale to inspire others and generate money for animal rescue groups.
The nuanced reaction from Mojo proved that animals possess intellect. Joey had aided Mojo when he was at his most helpless. Their separation is minimal.
