We’ve all felt the panic of running late when we need to be somewhere important. Sometimes, though, we end up in the exact right place at the right time to make a difference in someone’s life.
When Dion Cole was running late for work, his slight delay ended up changing one dog’s life forever. As he was driving to the office, he noticed a truck pull over, toss the dog out, and drive off. He couldn’t believe what he’d just seen, and he told his wife Danielle about the incident. In a Facebook post that quickly went viral, Danielle described their experience trying to help the pooch with a few choice words for the dog’s original owner!
Dion Cole was running late to work, and on his commute he saw a pickup truck pull over to the side of the road, dump a scared dog out, and drive off.
She began: “To the dirtbag that threw his dog out in the Allegan forest on 48th street Friday at about 3:30pm. Let me tell you what your dog went through as you drove off.”
“Your dog chased after you and ran as fast as his little legs would let him until his legs gave out and [he] collapsed on the side of the road.” Dion had stopped to help the pooch, but “the little guy was so scared that he ran into the forest and hid.”
Danielle continued: “Later that evening we went to look for your dog and he was right where you left him waiting for you to come back, once again he ran scared for his life.”
Danielle’s message says: “Saturday morning I took some treats and my dog in hopes that he would feel comfortable enough to come up to my dog. Well, he was thinking about it but then someone else stopped to help and he ran back into the forest.”
“I just couldn’t stop thinking about this poor little guy who was thrown from a car, lost, and confused, so I decided I would take a bowl of food to him and leave it where he had been hanging out.
When she arrived, Danielle found a group of people already trying to coax the little guy out of the woods. She joined the effort, saying, “He was terrified, but with patience and the help of a sweet little boy we were able to catch him.”
For now, the Coles have taken in the dog and are trying to find him a permanent home. They’re confident they’ll find one soon, but Danielle had this to say to the dog’s original owner: “How could you throw your dog out like a piece of trash? This handsome little guy is so sweet and loving. You will answer for what you did one day.”
