On a busy weekday morning, during the commute, Dion Cole was running late for work. However, this time running behind was a good thing as it changed the course of someone’s life that was in need of a kind soul.
On the highway in Michigan, Dion proceeded to his office. It was then he saw the unthinkable. A man driving in a vehicle ahead decided he no longer wanted his dog– so he threw him out. Instead of doing the right thing, like surrendering him to a rescue group or a shelter, he just cast him out right on the side of the dangerous roadway.
The dog, having no idea why this just happened, chased after his owner’s car. The whole ordeal was beyond heartbreaking. Dion pulled over and tried to get the dog to come inside his vehicle. But the dog was convinced that his owner would return for him.
The dog was afraid and cowered in the woods beside the highway. Dion tried again but it was of no use. The dog was simply unwilling to go with him. Dion called his wife, Danielle, to tell her what had just happened.
Danielle, understandably disgusted, took to Facebook and posted this:
The Coles contacted local rescues and were able to return to the woods beside the highway and bait the dog. When they finally got him inside the dry warm car, he calmed down a bit. But of course, his distressing day would be a permanent trauma he would live with forever.
Finally safe and in good hands, the loyal dog went home with the rescue group. He found a new family in no time.
While his ordeal was far from fair, it was a blessing in disguise. If his owner could do this to him on a main road with so many to see, imagine what it was like behind closed doors! Now living a life filled with love– the ‘unwanted’ dog will never feel abandoned again.
