Bright future in store for dog dumped as trash along Texas 'Corridor of Cruelty'

In the saddest part of northeast Houston, referred to as the "Corridor of Cruelty," the area has become popular as a dumping ground for living and dead unwanted pets from miles away. Look around, and the abandoned, suffering, and starving dogs are everywhere; here negligent owners throw their dogs and cats away with the trash.

On Feb.10, while volunteers from Corridor Rescue, Inc., a non profit organization helping to wage a battle on behalf of these lost souls since 2008, had been checking on an owner alleged to have been beating his dog, they came across this terribly neglected dog seemingly encased in his own mud encrusted shell of matted fur and mud.

When rescue volunteers asked neighbors about the dog, a couple told them the dog was homeless, but they had been feeding him scraps and leftovers.

That day there were four dogs rescued, but this little guy was the worse. He was named "Osito Little Bear."

And from that moment, Osito's new life began. He was bathed, shaved, and vetted. His old coat of filth weighed 2.5 pounds. Lucky for Osito, his blood test came back heart worm negative.

The organization's Facebook page had the good news:

"OSITO is doing very well. The vet tells us that he does have a bent front leg that could be from an old break which healed on it's own. He is loving his new look and feels free as a bird."

The rumor is that Osito may soon be eligible for adoption.

Don't you just love happy endings?
