When animal lovers in Houston spotted a creature with an enormous head wandering the streets, they were shocked to discover that it was actually a dog. Described as having a head as large as a pumpkin, this poor dog was in desperate need of help. The local police were alerted and quickly rushed to the scene to rescue him from an abandoned building where he was found hiding.

Capturing the scared and skittish dog proved to be a challenge. It was clear that he was afraid of people, so the police had to come up with a clever plan to lure him into a trap and bring him to safety. Once captured, he was promptly taken to a veterinarian for treatment.

At the vet’s office, the true extent of the dog’s ordeal became apparent. It was discovered that someone had wrapped a shoelace around his neck when he was just a small puppy. Over time, the lace tightened, cutting into his flesh. In addition to this cruelty, he had also been hit by a car, suffering a crushed pelvis and multiple fractures in his legs. Despite all of this, he miraculously survived.

“He was very scared at first, but it was as if he knew we wanted to help him. Whatever we needed to do with him, he allowed us to do it, like a fighter,” recounts Anna, the woman who would ultimately adopt him.

After a month of intensive treatment at the vet, Anna brought him home and named him Gus. As time went on, Gus’s true personality began to shine through, and he quickly became beloved by everyone he met. He enjoyed the company of other dogs and loved meeting new people.


Although Anna initially planned to find Gus a new forever home once he was healthy, she couldn’t bear to part with him when the time came. “It was not a difficult decision; I just felt that I’m not going to let him go,” says Anna.

Today, Gus lives a happy life with Anna. They often visit schools, allowing children to meet and interact with Gus, something he absolutely adores. His incredible story of survival and resilience has touched the hearts of many, leading to demonstrations against animal cruelty. Gus was even named the hero dog of the year and attended a Hollywood gala with his owner.

Gus’s eyes sparkle with joy, and it’s clear to see how much he is enjoying life now. With his big heart and newfound home, Gus has truly become an inspiration and a symbol of hope.
