The following description was included with the original video on

“Pumpkin was an abused and abandoned young dog trying to survive on Houston’s harsh streets. Watch this little dog’s remarkable and inspiring story.  Oh, and a “foster failure” is a good thing.  It means the foster mom became forever mom.”

Now this is one truly amazing transformation story.  See what Pumpkin looked like while still homeless, and then compare it to what Pumpkin looks like after the wonderful rescue staff, medical staff and volunteers with the rescue group laid on some much needed TLC.  What an amazing story.  Go Pumpkin.
