Your Pet's Rescue Story
Dog - My Best Friend Rescue Red
After moving out of my parents house and away from my family dog Jake I really missed having a warm belly to rub and cold nose to snuggle with. I was looking around at local rescues and came across Save a Life which so happened to be having an event the next day. So my girlfriend and I drove over to PetSmart which was hosting their rescue event. We arrived early and watched them set up the crates with the pups in them. Everyone there kept going on about the little puppies. The tiny little dogs no bigger then a loaf of bread. However my heart was set on a big dog. So once they let everyone see the pups of course they flocked to the little dogs first while I ventured to the big ones. I notice a little black lab in the corner not barking or caring on like the other dogs. Just laying there with his big ears and sad eyes. I went up to him and started petting him. He just looked up at me and started wagging his tail. I knew then he was mine. He wiggles his way straight into my heart. I always believe that dogs pick their owner and that day Rocko picked me. We didn’t have the cash for the adoption fee so we rushed over to the closest ATM and rushed back hoping no one grabbed him. Luckily there he was waiting for us to return. I signed the paperwork and hoped in the car with my new best friend. He was so nervous on the ride home but we held him close and tried to calm his nerves. Once home we set up a bed for him in the corner he just snuggled up and fell fast asleep. From that moment on he has been the most loving dog I could have ever asked for. He is so full of love and life he has definitely changed me for the better. He has made me become more active in my life and makes me laugh with the big goofy things he does. Even down to losing my grandfather recently, he was right by my side as I cried over his lose. I believe that day I didn’t rescue Rocko he rescued me.
