HOUSTON, Tx. -- Nothing beats a good belly rub, especially when you`ve had a "ruff life."

"This is my friend, his name is Carson and he`s really, really fun. He`s a 3 year old Golden Retriever mix and as you can see Carson is a very friendly boy" says Meera Nandlal of the Houston SPCA. This sweet boy ran into some trouble on the streets of Houston. We`re not sure exactly what happened and Carson`s not talking.

Whatever happened, he caught a ride to the Houston SPCA in their 24-hour rescue ambulance. Carson was covered in wounds all over his body. The vets stitched up all his wounds and started him on the road to recovery. "He`s actually healing really nicely. We can tell he`s doing well because he`s bright, alert and very friendly" says Nandlal.

Once he`s healed he`ll be ready for his golden beginning and it`s safe to say, Carson is "itching" to find his "furr-ever family." Do you think you could own a dog that`s had a ruff life? For more info on Carson, click here.
