Inspirational Rescue Dog Adoption Story
If you need the inspiration to seal the adoption of a dog, then here’s a rescue dog adoption story for you. A dog rescued from abuse, in turn, provided emotional support to the child who sheltered him.
Tyler and his family had a rough year. Within a short period, they have lost three dear senior dogs, and beloved Nan lost the battle against illness. Nobody took it harder than Megan’s seven-year-old son.
It was a struggle for him to adjust from the successive departures. The family tried to take on a new puppy, but that proved to be a challenge as well. The pup found it hard to adjust to his new home. He would bite Ty’s finger, hide his things, and pull his hair.
Even school was hard to tolerate for little Ty. With no family members close by, he has no one to confide. Being shy did not help him make friends either. As a mother, it was tough for Megan to see his young son experience such hardships.
Megan knew there was only one thing that delighted his son: dog walks at Family Dog Rescue. On one of his volunteer visits, he met a rescue who he never thought would heal the ache he always felt.
But the dog did not come without a hitch. Fido refused to play, move, or even eat. The poor dog caught distemper when he was but a young pup, so he had persistent tics. Probably feeling a connection of comradeship, Ty asked to foster the dog and to which his family happily agreed.
Finally engaged to something, Ty would take care of his needs. They had a routine of feeding, giving medicine, walking, snuggling, and holding him close at night. Wiggie, as he fondly named him, learned to respond to Ty over time. The two became inseparable since.
It became evident that the reason they crossed paths that day was to fill the void each of them has been feeling. His family felt immense joy over the new addition of their growing home, especially of Wiggie’s emotional support to Tyler. Adopting a dog is truly a rewarding experience.
