The physical attributes of an individual hold minimal significance in determining true beauty. When we strip away the outer appearances and delve into our inner selves, we discover that we all share a common essence. It is this inner beauty that truly matters.
Unfortunately, some individuals in Lucky’s life were unable to look beyond his outward appearance. This was a great tragedy! Lucky was born with a significant facial deformity, a condition that arose during his time in a puppy mill before finding himself in the care of a shelter. Finding him a loving home proved to be a challenging task. The moment people set eyes on him, they were taken aback by what they witnessed.
Lucky, against all odds, found a home eventually, but sadly, his journey was far from a pleasant one. Passed from one family to another, he faced a series of unjust treatments that left him longing for a sense of belonging. In his first home in Austin, his inability to get along with their cats led to a heart-wrenching decision – Lucky was banished to the outdoors, tied to a tree like an unwanted object. In this desolate existence, he lacked a cozy place to rest and frequently went hungry. The saddest part was, Lucky’s presence seemed to go unnoticed by his caregivers, depriving him of the love and attention he truly deserved. As if he were an afterthought, his previous family chose to relinquish him before their relocation, proving that he was never truly embraced as a valued member of their household.
Lucky found himself with a new family, only to be left behind once more. It was clear that luck was not on the side of this unfortunate canine.
But then, a remarkable event unfolded on social media that transformed everything! Lucky, the adorable shelter dog, was treated to a spa day by a compassionate volunteer. Captivated by Lucky’s immaculate appearance, the volunteer couldn’t resist sharing some stunning photos of the freshly groomed pooch. As fate would have it, one of the volunteer’s friends, Jamie Hult, stumbled upon these captivating images and felt an instant connection to Lucky. Overwhelmed by an irresistible desire to provide a forever home, Jamie was determined to meet and adopt Lucky as soon as possible!
“It was purely coincidental that the person I encountered belonged to my dog rescue community, prompting me to swiftly reach out and express my interest in acquiring that particular dog.” Jamie shared with iHeartdogs, emphasizing, “My intention isn’t to temporarily foster the dog; I genuinely desire to provide a forever home for it.”
Regrettably, Lucky was not in the best condition and needed extensive medical attention from a veterinarian. He was infested with fleas and infected with heartworms. Additionally, he was significantly undernourished. However, Jamie remained unfazed by these challenges. She was determined to provide him with the necessary care, willingly opening both her wallet and her heart for his sake.
Lucky embarked on a lengthy adventure, but thanks to top-notch healthcare, he made a full recovery! Alongside his fresh dwelling, renewed existence, and newfound companion, a fresh moniker was bestowed upon him: Toxic Tox!
I decided to call him Beaux Tox because he definitely could use some botox treatment, but that’s totally fine. Appreciating beauty in all its forms is something we highly value here. The main reason I haven’t gotten botox myself is because taking care of a dog can be quite costly! Jamie’s attitude and mindset seem to be exactly what Beaux needs, don’t you agree?
After a year, their marriage remains a blissful and joyful union. Beaux, now a thriving young canine, is relishing a life filled with happiness. Gone are the days when he was compelled to be tethered to trees or endure lonesome nights in shelters, or face discrimination due to his appearance. Now, the only emotion he experiences is an abundance of love, showered upon him as a sweet and beloved puppy.
