They Spotted A Lonely Dog In The Rain, But His Fur Was Hiding An Awful Secret.
The number of worms inside poor Bran was impossible to believe.
Bran had hook, round, ring, and heartworms. Fortunately, the vet was able to give him the right meds to treat his condition. But there was something else that was just as bad.
Bran was infested with ticks.
Not only was his tail one giant dreadlock, but Bran had over 200 ticks throughout his body. Although ticks may appear to be a minor nuisance, they can pose a serious health risk to the host, and even pass along diseases to other animals.
Bran had an awesome adoptive family, but he first needed to be tick-free before meeting everyone.
It turns out that Blaine was already a proud owner of another golden retriever named Addie. Once Bran was tick-free, he was able to meet Addie. Though he was confused at first, he slowly got used to his new life and his new family, and now he is one happy soul.
Bran quickly became an internet sensation overnight.
Blaine captured Bran's entire recovery on camera and then shared the golden retriever's heart wrenching story on social media. Bran was eventually strong enough to assist Blaine in his shop. It wasn't long before the dog was able to put the past behind him and embrace his new loving, supportive family.
