February 25 was a morning like any other, when this postman was walking to deliver mail from one house to another until he noticed something strange. At first glance, he noticed a white silhouette in a ditch and approaching, he realized he had found an old white dog.
The dog was squatting to try to warm up despite the cold temperatures that characterize the Missouri winters. Nate approached and also noticed that the poor dog did not hear and did not see very well. At this point, Nate did not hesitate to interrupt the delivery of his mail and decided to take the dog with him and then to transport him to the nearest veterinary center.
Nate was given all possible information on the health of the dog, which was however very worrying, since poor Sloan, that’s the name they gave the dog, was abandoned for days and was therefore dehydrated and undernourished.
Once the dog was taken care of, Nate went back to work but he could not stop thinking about the poor dog, He considered the abandonment of Sloan as a heinous act and someone had to adopt the dog that deserved a house and someone who loved him.
The dog, after taking into account his serious physical condition, was however transferred for special treatment in the KC Pet project. Here, veterinarians confirmed Sloan’s serious condition but assured that it would be recoverable. In the meantime, Sloan’s age of 12 was determined.
Despite the age, this old dog recovered with extraordinary speed and when Sloan was ready to be greeted by someone at the KC Pet Project, they had no doubt who to call.
A few days later, and when Nate was working (still thinking about this dog), a call came from this shelter.
The vets told Nate that he could formally adopt the old Sloan and when they saw each other for the second time, the dog immediately recognized Nate, he immediately recognized the man who saved his life and thanked with so many hugs and lots of kisses.
Sloan had a wonderful time in his new home and quickly adapted to his new life. Nate is proud to have made Sloan’s second life possible.
“Sloan is an older dog that I think belonged to a family,” Nate said. “His behavior and actions are proof of that. Someone did something very inhumane. I only did the human thing. “
