In Defiance, Ohio, a loyal dog thought he was going for a car ride on Wednesday evening. Tragically, he was abandoned in front of the Fort Defiance Humane Society; his story is heartbreaking.
I’m still confused on what happened. It was dark and rainy and wasn’t quite time to go outside. The person I loved so much gathered my things and loaded them up. I thought it was very strange that my kennel and my breakfast were coming along for a ride. Since I loved my humans so much, I decided it must be fine. I’m a great boy, I thought. I wag my tail. I give kisses. I know how to sit. I’m very friendly. I bet this is a surprise adventure for being such a good boy always! I sat patient and excitedly in the vehicle.”
And when they arrived at the shelter, the loyal dog didn’t recognize the place, but his love and trust were unwavering.
“We eventually pulled into a place I’ve never been. First, my kennel was unloaded and placed in front of a huge kennel! I saw there were lots of toys in there… I wonder what this place is? Now my breakfast is sitting on my kennel. I’m a little confused. I got in my kennel like a good boy. I whined a little. Then I watched my human walk away. This isn’t fun anymore. They are surely going to come back. They have to. I’m a good boy.”
The loyal dog waited for his family to return. They loved him – they would be back at any moment.
“I heard a car pull in on the stones. They’re back! They came back! No.. no…I heard a voice I’ve never heard before. What is going on? Who are you? Why am I here? I see a person who I have definitely never seen before. I’m not going to wag my tail. I hung my head low. I whined. Where are my humans?”
This puppy was one of the lucky ones to have been rescued.
“The lady got me out of my kennel. She hugged my soaking wet body. She was warm. Her hug made my tail wag. I really like her. I still don’t know what’s going on. It’s not fun. But I think… I really do think.. I’m going to be okay.”
