This is the sight that tugged at a good Samaritan’s heart – a man, Dave Thomas, – sat holding his dog’s paw through a gap at the bottom of a cage, saying a last goodbye before the dog is put to sleep.
The dog, “Buzz Lightyear“, was taken into the Pound when Thomas was jailed for a few days for a traffic violation. Now that he was out, though, he didn’t have the $400 needed to free his dog from the Pound and Buzz was scheduled to be euthanised
Touched by the sight of Thomas and Buzz together, Maria Sanchez posted the pic to Facebook and . . . asked for donations to get the dog released before it was put down
The donations poured in and with the help of a local news station, Thomas was traced and re-united with Buzz – now fitted with a micro-chip to stop him being treated as a stray and put down if he should ever find himself in a Pound another time
As a dog-owner myself, I’m a sucker for any story that involves dogs, and if this story stopped here it would be a lovely feel-good story showing the warm-hearted generous response of people to a stranger in need of help
Sadly, it doesn’t. The story took another turn – and the phrase ‘bite the hand that feeds you‘ springs to my mind !!!
