A Golden Retriever Left To Die Alone Is Rescued. He's Now The Happiest Dog In The World

December 23, 2013

Meet Bran, a Golden Retriever who was found after being abandoned and living in the woods outside of Atlanta alone for three months. Somehow he survived long enough to be rescued by his awesome new owner who shared this incredible story of one dog's rescue from near death to possibly the happiest dog on Earth.

This is a picture of him in the tub. He was too dirty to be anywhere else and no amount of bathing cleaned him.

This was the next morning. Looking rough and extremely exhausted. He pretty much slept for 3 weeks straight after we found him.

The following morning I took him to a vet for his first check up. He was 25 lbs under weight, not chipped, not tagged, and had most worms a dog could have. That included, hook, round, ring and heart worms. We then proceeded to brush out all his knots. His tail had become one big dread lock. Next was all the tick picking. This tiny amount quickly escalated to around 200 ticks over the course of 2-3 days of picking.

Three days later, already looking so much better.

He quickly became my shop dog because of how calm and passive he was.

Just like most Goldens, when I come home, he must find the nearest object to bring to me. If he can't find his toys, the next in line is a shoe or a remote.

He loves to snuggle with my other Golden, Addie.

We've had him for about 6 months now and he's gained a lot of weight. I'm happy to announce that he is 100% every worm free and is the most amazingly sweet dog ever. He's just over 1 year old now!
