A lot of us love to take care of and love our dogs. But unfortunately, there are also some nasty animal owners, and it just goes to show that some individuals should never be around animals for their own safety.
One of those individuals is the owner of “Chunk” – a beautiful three-month-old dog that has lost all its vitality. Since she was born, her owner has ʙʀᴜᴛᴀʟʟʏ ᴀʙᴜsᴇᴅ her. After three months, they abandoned her by the roadside, ᴄʜᴀɪɴᴇᴅ to a tree so that she could not escape.
The poor dog was left in the rain and was probably wondering what he might have done wrong. Fortunately, the local fire department discovered the dog. On a cold October day in Sacramento, a member of the department was able to save Chunk in time.
They are actually responding to an emergency call and observing the four legs on the side of the road. Since it was an emergency, the crew couldn’t leave immediately, but had to return once their call was handled.
The inclement weather was especially hard on her, the firefighters still remembering how the poor little creature shivered from the cold. Firefighter Mike Thawley was the one who chose to pick up little Chunk under his wing and take her back to the fire department. Mike and his colleagues did all they could to provide the love and care they deserved.
Since she was still feeling very cold, the first thing they did was give her a warm bath, followed by lots of hugs and cuddles from some of the firefighters. However, she didn’t simply have a cold, it was clear from the start that she was dealing with severe sᴄᴀʙɪᴇs. It is not at all unusual to observe the skin condition of dogs that are ᴀʙᴜsᴇᴅ by their owners. Chunk receives first aid from the fire station and is then transferred to an animal shelter for treatment and will one day find his loving permanent home.
Front Street Animal Welfare brought her in for treatment for sᴄᴀʙɪᴇs and made sure she made a full recovery. A foster home was also set up where she could stay until she felt better. It took a while before her fur started to grow back and Chunk’s recovery wasn’t as easy as they had imagined.
While Chunk spends the day at her shelter, there’s one person in particular who can’t stop thinking about her: Firefighter Mike Thawley returns to the shelter with quite a few surprises. The pitbull clearly hasn’t forgotten who this guy is, and you can see how excited and excited she is to see her savior again.
Mike did not come to the shelter alone, his wife and three daughters also accompanied him. The fireman and his family would love to take care of her forever. The group was there to bring home their adopted puppy Chunk. Chunk was rescued from Engine 14 by Mike and the rest of the crew last Sunday and is being treated at the shelter.
Mike and his family had to wait four months for her sᴄᴀʙɪᴇs treatment to be complete before they were able to bring her home, but they were all delighted to adopt her after all this time.
“I think the great thing about this whole story is that not only did this dog get a permanent home, but he also had the opportunity to go to a foster home, which we always look for in our shelter, to be happy and healthy,” said one of the shelter workers Bobby Mann.
