HOUSTON - Do you recognize Gus?

He made national headlines a few months ago, and today, he’s totally unrecognizable!

Gus was found in August with a swollen head after someone tied a shoelace around his neck.

A Facebook update Wednesday from Houston K-911 Rescue shows the swelling is long gone, but so it all that extra skin around Gus’ neck.

Those at Houston K-911 Rescue say Gus has the swing back in his hips, and his hair looks healthy again.

From August until now, you can see Gus has undergone an amazing transformation.
