WHITSETT, N.C.-- We first introduced you to Hercules, the pit bull mix, a few weeks ago after someone left him outside of the Stoney Creek Veterinary Hospital in Eastern Guilford County with a note that read, “Hercules, Please Help.”

His collar was embedded about an inch into his neck, and the skin had grown around his collar.

Good news! Hercules is on the road to recovery today!

He had several surgeries, including a special laser treatment to help his scar tissue heal.

He will be heading to the Merit Pit Bull Foundation tomorrow and will be ready for adoption in a few weeks.
