When the dog woke up from the sedation, he was noticeably happier.
“After he got shaved, he was kind of a different dog,” Holgate said. “He still was unsure of everybody, but he started to warm up more. He would give me kisses.”
Holgate took the dog home with her that night, and the next day, the team at the SPCA of Texas was able to locate the dog’s family. The dog’s name, it turned out, was Oreo.
“A woman had lost her dog the day before,” Holgate said. “He had gotten out of their backyard.”
