At one time, this poor little puppy didn’t have a friend in the world, but a special man changed all that and she couldn’t be happier.
A firefighter Mike Thawley with the Sacramento Fire Department rescued this dog over the weekend. She was found bound up all alone on the side of the road in the rain. It is unclear how she got there, the pup was suffering an untreated skin condition due to prior neglect.
Thawley took the dog, now named Chuckie , back to the station to dry her off before taking her to the Front Street Animal Shelter to keep her safe. His kindness, however, didn’t end there.
The following day, Thawley returned to the shelter to visit with Chunkie and let the sick puppy know she wasn’t alone in the world, and he was here and still cared for her.
Thawley and his family are considering fostering Chunkie, though he may have already helped secure her a forever home of her own. Thanks to his visit that he video and posted to Facebook, thousands of people are now familiar with this puppy’s story and what a difference a few acts of kindness can make in the life of an animal.
