The dog was able to survive the harsh winterAn animal rescue group in Franklin County, Virginia, is doing everything in its power to find a permanent home for a mutt named Herbie.

After his owners abandoned him in the wild three months ago, Herbie was able to last the cold wintery months and snow, in addition to being attacked by another pack of dogs, according to NBC Washington.

After the canine was picked up, veterinarians noticed that despite these injuries and harsh conditions, Herbie is gradually making a recovery back to good dog health.

Herbie has been staying with volunteer foster families until he can be permanently placed. He has won a special place in many people’s hearts, who are joining in the search for finding the pup a permanent residence.

"He actually is very resilient," Herbie’s foster parent, Rick Walsh, told the news provider. "He likes to keep you happy. He is a very happy dog. His tail is always wagging. … Whoever is lucky enough to adopt Herbie will be very fortunate."ADNFCR-2720-ID-19654604-ADNFCR
