A dog who lost his snout in a vicious machete attack in the Philippines has found a forever home with an Oregon rescuer. After nearly dying in the attack, the mixed breed pup, named Wacku, spent years with a Filipino rescue group, with little hope of finding an adopter because of his disfigured face, reported Inside Edition.
But everything changed last month when he was brought to the United States by Road Dogs and Rescue – Liesl Wilhardt, who heads up Luvable Dog Rescue in Eugene, Oregon, learned about Wacku and decided that he was meant to live with her. Wilhardt said, “I had this gut feeling that he would be really happy with me and my dogs. It wasn’t just how shocking his features are, but he seems so intelligent and social and I just thought, ‘What a survivor.'”
Wacku joins another famously disfigured pooch named Picasso, who also lives with Wilhardt.

To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
