People can’t figure out where the puppy’s cry is coming from until they look up at the sky. This is one of the most magical stories ever, it’s about a 6-week-old puppy that survived a ʜᴏʀʀɪꜰɪᴄ incident. It started when a group of construction workers heard the urgent cry of a small dog after a busy day.
They started searching and following the sound but found nothing, but they still heard the cry so one of them looked up and realized that it was coming from above. Once they saw the ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ sight of a baby Chihuahua caught in the claws of a hawk flying in the sky with it.
They were all completely shocked and didn’t know what to do, but the hawk then released the plunging Chihuahua. So the workers who ran to see them couldn’t believe what they saw. Fortunately, the puppy was injured but not too badly so the workers picked him up and took him to the nearest vet, where he was examined and knew he would be fine.
The tiny puppy was brought to the Austin Animal Center (AAC), with a few sᴄʀᴀᴛᴄʜᴇs, a few ʙʀᴜɪsᴇs and bumps. He was given IV fluids to boost his strength after his ʜᴏʀʀɪꜰʏɪɴɢ incident with the hawk.
The people at the shelter then decided to officially name the puppy “Tony Hawk”. Despite the hard fall, Tony suffered only a few minor ᴄᴜᴛs to his head and chest, and his rescuers were delighted when they realized he would make a full recovery.
“Tony Hawk is surprisingly light,” says Olohan. “He has a few scales on his head and shoulders from hawk claws, but that’s all! No ʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ bones or internal injuries from falls. It is truly a miracle!”
It remains a mystery as to where Tony came from whether he was a stray child born on the street or someone’s puppy picked up from the backyard. Even so, his shelter family are happy he has found his way to them and they are happy that he is doing so well now. He stays with a foster family until he is old enough to be castrated, and then the shelter will begin to find him the perfect family forever.
“At this point, his adopter is inundated with adoption applications and has some really great candidates, so we won’t be taking any more applications for him at the moment,” Olohan said.
Tony may have had a rough start in life, but that doesn’t affect his sweet nature or bubbly personality, and his friends at the shelter know he’ll be like So and the best pet addition for a very lucky family.
Thankfully, the little Chihuahua, named Tony Hawk, is currently recovering and receiving proper nutrition and will be ready for adoption as he has fully recovered.
