Rags to riches: Pixel


What a wonderful transformation this dog had! We rescued Pixel from Fisantekraal squatter camp as a skinny, defenceless pup after our volunteers spotted her scrounging around for food. It was a blazing hot day and this pup had no shelter or even water! She was mange-ridden and seriously underweight.

Pixel (as we named her) was just 6 months old and had a rough life behind her. We took her to our friends at Uitsig ARC who spent the next few months rehabilitating her, feeding her healthy food, helping her learn to trust again, and treating her mange.

But then we needed to find a home – not easy with a ‘plain old black and tan township brak‘, who wasn’t even a tiny pup anymore. And then one Saturday, a lovely man went to visit. He stopped outside her pen and said: “That’s The One!” He just looked into her eyes and KNEW. 

Today, Pixel is a strong, healthy, and very, very happy dog with her dad Sven. She goes for regular walks, sleeps inside, and is so loved. Awesome!

We do not have a shelter and Uitsig ARC no longer exists so we rely entirely on foster homes to save dogs like Pixel. Visit our Get Involved pages for more info.
