Never give up on an opportunity especially when it is left unlocked.
If you think stray animals completely forget the concept of love, you are very wrong. Even after being abandoned abused, shattered to pieces, and left alone in dangerous conditions, some part of them is still looking for love. That little glimmer of hope is what keeps them from passing and they continue to walk on this thin thread looking for love until they finally find it. Where there are people who abandon pets and leave them on their own as strays, there also exist some superheroes who make efforts to give these strays the love they deserve and a forever home where they can spend the best possible life an animal could possibly imagine. After all that they do for us, they deserve every single bit of that pampering. A pet animal would literally die for its owner, that’s the level of commitment they show, and rightfully so, expect similar treatment.
Today’s story is about a stray dog who one day decided enough is enough and decided to take the matters into its own hands.
A stray doggo was walking around, minding its own business, at a gas station. That’s where it noticed one of the cars parked there had its door opened.
The doggo decided this was its moment to get rid of this stray life and decided to hop into the ride.
As soon as she jumped into the car, she picked a sit and curled up on it, trying to make herself as comfortable as she could. It seems like she had no plans to leave that car without changing her life. A few minutes later the owner of the car, Bill Shaver, returned and quickly realized there was an uninvited guest comfortably chilling on one of the seats of his car.
Shaver had gone to the bathroom and that’s why his car was parked at the gas station. According to him, he was only gone for 2 minutes. But dogs don’t need 2 minutes to invade, they do it in seconds if they want to.
Given her condition, Shaver was quick to realize the dog hadn’t been eating properly and has probably been living life all by herself. The dog and the human instantly connected and with overflowing emotions, Shaver had made his decision. He at once called his wife for the final verdict.
Shaver called his wife to ask if he could bring the pup home to which he got an instant yes.
When Shaver reached home with the stray, his wife was delighted to see the dog and couldn’t wait to hug her. But the doggo was very hesitant to leave the car, she hadn’t felt such feelings in a very long time. She felt more comfortable in the car seat and didn’t want to be exposed to the outside world once again. That’s when Shaver politely picked the shy pup, who the couple had named River, and took her to the backyard.
The couple had rescued 3 pups previously and River was the fourth addition to the family. They wanted her to feel as comfortable as possible before introducing her to the family members.
Slowly but eventually River started showing signs of confidence as the shyness slowly faded away. The couple now felt confident that she won’t feel unsafe if they bring her into the house. Shaver took the big step and brought River inside the house for the first time and before they proceeded with anything, the girly had to be given a bath.
To no one’s surprise, it was a very long bath as River was covered in ticks, mud, and god knows what. But after she was done bathing, she looked so fresh and better. After the skin cleared up, Shaver and his wife realized River had some deep cuts on her neck so they decided to get River checked up by a vet but before all of this she needed some delicious food to eat and a nice long nap to freshen up.
After River woke up, she was taken to the vet where the doctor told the family their dog had tapeworms and heartworms. River was given some medication and there was nothing much to worry about as she got healthy very quickly.
River was finally all set to kick start the new chapter of her life and adapt to the luxurious lifestyle she was going to be presented with.
River got all the confidence she needed to live the best possible life with her new owners and her animal friends at home. She must be really happy to take that big step and hop into that car. Sometimes you have to take matters into your own paws, River did it, and look at her now. She is the happiest dog in the world.
Here are some of the beautiful comments shared by people after they read what River did to secure a great future:
It was River who adopted a family that day.
They were always meant for each other.
River and The Shaver Family are all in for a great ride.
She was destined to be at that right gas station and to jump in the right car.
