Chiweenie dogs appeared as a result of crossing dachshunds and chihuahuas.
It is not known how old the dog was when he was on the street, but his life was clearly full of hardships.
His fate changed in one day – when zoo volunteers found the puppy and decided to take care of him.
He was given the name Dobby, after the house elf from Harry Potter.
It seemed to the rescuers that the Chiweenie had the same touching look of huge eyes, and, of course, the same huge ears.
This meeting changed the life of little Dobby in the same way as the life of his namesake changed the meeting with the famous wizard.
Shelter staff found the dog on the streets of Texas – despite the warm autumn weather, he was shivering from the cold.
There was not a single hair on him, his skin was inflamed, and his ears were covered with scabs.
Veterinarians quickly figured out that the cause of the dog’s terrible condition was demodicosis, a kind of non-contagious mange.
Fortunately, the veterinarians and volunteers at the shelter knew what to do.
The dog was on the mend, but he still did not look very attractive, although the first fur had already begun to break through the darkened skin.
Despite the strange appearance, Dobby found a new owner: blogger and tiktoker Brylee.
The dog and his new owner have been together for six months.
During this time, Dobby got stronger and completely covered with mange – even white spots on his chest became visible.
He is healthy and absolutely happy. He seems to be smiling all the time.
“So happy I found him,” Brylee says.
Brylee shared a slideshow of her puppy’s miraculous transformation on TikTok and moved followers to tears.
One girl wrote to her that with this transformation, Brylee changed the whole world.
Another called him the happiest dog she had ever seen.
“He deserved to be happy,” Brylee wrote.
