When Daijon was left behind after his owners moved from Moreno Valley, the broken little dog, with the saddest eyes couldn’t get back into his home. He couldn’t understand why the doors and the windows were closed, but several times a day he would look inside and whimper as if questioning where his family could have gone?
When that didn’t work, he would try to get into the backyard; instead he slept on the side of the house.
“I watched him look up longingly at the window of what was once his home and could see the new owners so he would hang his head and sleep on the side of the house. I was so relieved once I rescued him,” described Faith Easdale, who volunteers with Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue.
The new owners of the home had a pit bull who wasn’t dog friendly, so they reached out for help. Sadly, mean-spirited children in the neighborhood tormented Daijon; that is until Faith chased them away and spent the rest of the day trying to figure out how to rescue this hurting little soul.
“This little man is sitting next to me not realizing the magnitude of what just happened. He only wondered if more pain was about to take place,” Faith posted on her Facebook page on September 4, hoping to find a qualified foster parent to help. “He is literally falling asleep standing. Goodnight little one. You’re safe. Your next family will not abandon you.”
And now just three weeks later, Daijon’s life has changed. Safely fostered with Stephanie Vegas in Menifee, the sweet little dog is slowly learning to trust again. On Friday, a special gift arrived for Daijon. A woman had read his story and made him a special prayer blanket. A note was included:
It was a honour to make your special prayer blanket. It’s filled with lots of love and many prayers. I hope it brings you comfort, healing and warmth as you are wrapped in it. All of us members of Fur Angel Blessing Blanketeers love you and have prayed for you and have blessed this blanket for you. We pray that God will bring healing and comfort to you sweet Dijon! Hope you like your blanket, it was my pleasure to make it just for you! Much love Caprice Messer & FABB.”
