Cooper, Trixi and Bruno haven’t always had comfortable dog beds. They used to share a dirty mattress in a dump before being rescued. They hugged for warmth and comforted each other frequently, but it wasn’t as good as having a real home.
When help arrived, things changed for the better. However, soon after, they were split into different foster homes and started living separate lives. Although they were separated, they never forgot the time they spent together.
In the emotional moment recorded by the camera, the three puppies reunited almost a year later.
Three dogs rescued from landfill reunite a year later
In a Facebook post, Ruff Start Rescue says:
“Through collaborative efforts, all three were rescued and adopted by different organizations. We recently posted an update on former student of RSR Cooper (Labrador mix) and everyone was asking, “What happened to the other two dogs?” Cooper’s foster family reunited with Trixi and Bruno and they all got together last weekend. Rescue doesn’t get much sweeter.”
It was a kind of reunion for families and their rescue dogs in Minnesota. It was great to see how they caught up, especially considering how the dogs story started.
“They were found in a known dump and one of our rescue partners called for help. Trixi and Bruno were rescued that day.”
When Trixi and Bruno were taken in, Cooper ran away because he was afraid of the humans and didn’t think they would take him to a safe place.
“The rescuers knew he was still there so they kept looking for him frequently, [By] the end of February he was ready to be rescued and he jumped into the truck.”
While taking the dogs to the vet, it was discovered that each had to have a leg amputated before they could be offered for adoption. However, once they were healthy enough, they all found a nice home.
All three dogs are now grateful to have had a second chance.
Cooper’s mother, Brenda Heitschmidt, says:
“Bruno’s family said he’s very calm and happy to be in a house, and Trixi seems fine, but she’s a bit more cheerful than the kids. We assume the children protected her.
So much can change in 12 months, but let’s hope reuniting with old friends stays the same. As for Cooper, his adoptive mother couldn’t imagine her life without him anymore.
Finally, Brenda said:
“He’s a perfect dog. Many will say how lucky he is to be with us, but we think we really are the lucky ones.”
