June 24th, 2020

When it comes to our neighbors, showing some understanding and minding our own business is usually the best way to go.

But when someone’s life is in clear and present danger, you might have to forgo the whole minding your own business thing.

That’s what one Redditor, who goes by the name nofx-linoleum, did when he saw a severely emaciated dog tied up in a yard.

The Redditor lives in the Caribbean and was driving along in his car when he looked over into a yard while stopped at a corner.

He noticed an incredibly sickly looking dog in the through a chainlink fence.

The dog, who he would eventually name Sunny, was lying in the dirt attached to a 5-foot lead.

“So, in my last post, I did not say the entire story. I live somewhere in the Caribbean and a lot of homes only have chain link fences so you can see into most yards,” the nofx-linoleum wrote on Facebook. “This day I was driving down the road at stopped at a corner and when I looked to my left I saw Sunny on her 5-foot lead in the dirt curled up into a ball.”

He was heartbroken to see a dog that was so neglected and uncared for.

He knew he couldn’t just keep on driving.

So, he decided to get out of his car and investigate what was going on and if he could liberate the dog.

He realized he could, especially since the dog was friendly.

“My heart sank and I knew I had to get that pupper out of there. So, I got out my truck and began to call out to her and she looked and wagged her tail and that was it,” he said.

Nofx-linoleum decided that he would at least walk around the house and see if the owner was there.

He didn’t find evidence of anyone being home so he decided he would come up with a plan to take the dog.

A passerby also saw the dog in distress, saying: “That animal looks terrible.”

And that was an understatement.

Poor Sunny was so skinny that you could see every bone in her body pushing through her skin.

The Redditor agreed and explained that he wanted to take the dog home with him.

“The only thing stopping you is a fence,” the passerby explained. “You must jump it and hand over the dog to me!”
The two men agreed on the plan and took action.

So, nofx-linoleum leaped over the fence and grabbed up the dog.

Once he got back at the fence, he handed the dog off.

The Redditor jumped back over the fence and the two men congratulated each other, then parted ways.

Lots of people are calling this man a hero. His Reddit post received more than 133,000 likes.

But you might just want to call the authorities rather than trespass on private property.

You can always offer to pay for medical expenses and adopt the dog after the authorities apprehend it. Vigilantism should be a last resort or the option when the help of the authorities isn’t available.

But the most important thing is that Sunny is doing great in her new home.

She’s gaining weight and is happy living with her new owner and his other rescue dogs.

All thanks to someone who wasn’t going to walk away when he saw someone else suffering.
