Kudos to samaritan Lynn Robertson who took the time from her day to be an extra special angel to a little dog whose life she surely saved! We send you Lynn, our Furever Network Certificate of Kindness, in humble recognition of your goodwill and empathy! Here’s her story of little lost Koots.
From Lost and Confused
Lynn reports …
I had my little dog, Caley, out for his car ride tonight and in my rearview mirror I saw a small shepherd/lab mix just narrowly miss being hit by a car crossing Lakeshore. I was concerned because it is such a busy road.
I turned my car around at the next street to see if I could see him and he was standing in a driveway. I got out of my car and called him over for cookies and he ran across Lakeshore again… totally disinterested in cookies…. and he ran down a side street. So, I got in my car and drove down the side street… found him again…. got out of my car and he took off again… I got back in my car and followed beside him and he just kept running.
He turned up someones driveway… I knew I had him then… I got out of my car again and ran towards the house… and when I turned up the driveway, my heart sank… the back yard was not fenced and it opened into bush and a ravine…. he was gone. I didn’t know what to do and I just started shouting as loud as I could…. “Do you wanna go for a walk????”
And, round the corner and out of the bush he came running… and ran right up to to me… and I put a leash on him…
I drove up Lakeshore to see if I could see anyone… and then I checked his tag… and his address was on it.
Because Koots couldn’t walk properly, although he managed to run extremely well, I had to try to lift him into my car. Caley would not move from the front seat – that’s his spot! I finally got Caley in the backseat and Caley barked at poor little Koots for most of the ride. I think he was trying to tell me there was a strange dog in the car and in his seat and I was trying to explain to Caley that Koots was a friend and we were going to take him home. And try and sooth little Koots and hold the little guy up, because he couldn’t sit up in the front seat
… to Safe at Home!
It was a very happy reunion. I rang the doorbell and Koots’ Daddy came to the door. I asked him if he had lost his dog and I told him that I had his little one in my car. He explained that Koots escaped from the backyard and the poor little guy has a brain disorder… he can’t walk properly and when he was in my car he couldn’t sit upright in the front seat.
I am just so happy that this little pup is back in his cozy little bed with his family tonight.
Sweet doggie dreams Koots!
Love Lynn and Caley xo
