Dogs, known for their kindness and empathy, often give us so much while asking for little in return. It’s heartbreaking to see a neglected or stray dog alone, especially when you understand the depth of their suffering.
This story revolves around a rescuer who encountered something quite extraordinary on a bustling road.
Living In A Dangerous Area
When an animal rescuer received a tip about a puppy residing in a cardboard box beside a busy roadway, he rushed to assist.
The outcome could have been dire if the puppy had remained there longer. Upon arrival, the rescuer quickly located the dog.
The puppy had clearly been in the box for some time. It appeared someone had constructed this makeshift shelter for him until help could arrive, a gesture of kindness.
Terrified, the puppy clung to his makeshift home, afraid of being harmed.
Unaware of the rescuer’s intentions, the puppy screamed in fear when the man attempted to coax him out.
Realizing the puppy’s terror, the rescuer slowed down, attempting a gentler approach. Yet, the puppy continued to scream as he was lifted from the box.
Moments later, however, the puppy relaxed, sensing safety in the arms of his rescuer.
Forest’s New Opportunity
Following the rescue, the man named the puppy Forest and placed him in a small kennel, ready to be taken to an animal shelter for medical care and nourishment.
Six days after his rescue, Forest was vaccinated against contagious diseases, with more treatments to follow.
Though still shy, Forest enjoyed the affection he received from his rescuer.
A Happy Ending
Two months at the shelter brought a new family and a loving home for Forest. His rescue and adoption illustrate the remarkable difference kindness can make in the lives of animals like him.
