Christmas is a special time of the year. However, that is not true for the dogs who were left out in the cold during this very happy occasion.
Some dogs have it rough on the day we call the ‘jolly season.’
Colorful Christmas decorations and flickering lights can be seen around the city and even outside our neighbor’s doors. Inside those houses, we can see people happily bonding together with their family – pets and all. However, we can also hear the howls of the homeless and abandoned dogs on the streets and alleys.
As sad as this can be, we can’t deny that there are real dogs out there mercilessly abandoned by their previous owners. Just like this particular dog who was abandoned and chained to a fence, struggling and hopeless. Until someone came and took him home.
Finally, a new home for this dog in the Christmas season.
This lonely dog’s turning point came when an NYPD officer stumbled across him. Officer Michael Pascale was driving around the neighborhood as he was on duty. Then, he spotted the dog all alone on the fence, soaked and cold because of the rain. Pascale jumped out of his car and rushed to the dog to take a closer look.
He already knew that this dog was in need of a good home and a loving family to take care of him. He eventually realized that he was the only one who was capable of giving all of that to the poor dog. As he felt sorry for the dog, he decided to carry him back to his car and took him home as soon as possible.
A few months later, the dog was happily living in Pascale’s home.
A dog who was left behind in the cold was now a healthy and lovely pooch. Pascale named his rescued dog Joey, and they have been living the best life with each other ever since. Joey became a new addition to the force, and he loves riding shotgun beside his new owner.
Pascale shared their lovely story to raise awareness about abandoned dogs like his new pal Joey. That rainy day was a Christmas miracle for both Joey and Officer Pascale as one was given a home, and the other got a four-legged best friend. Their story went viral online, and the internet was thanking him for his kindness.
People should stop dumping dogs on the street.
Taking care of a dog is a lot of responsibility, which is why people should think critically before taking one in their homes. If you can’t handle the burden of providing for a pet’s needs, then do not abandon them on the street, or just don’t get one in the first place. Animals never deserved to be thrown away or rejected.
Pascal and Joey were hoping that their story would reach people’s hearts and would stop others from dumping their dogs. Kind people should also be encouraged to take one home if ever they see one.
