The story of any animal being rescued is enough to pull on your heartstrings, but this little guy has a truly unique story. Unlike other dogs, this sweetheart was abandoned as a newborn. Since he was fresh out of the womb when he was left out on the street, he faced different challenges than most dogs. His story of finding a forever home will warm your heart.
Newborn puppies face different challenges than puppies that are abandoned in a later stage of development. Joy was still blind and deaf when he felt his feet hit the hard sidewalk. He didn’t have his teeth yet, either. Since puppies this young aren’t able to maintain their body temperature on their own, rehabilitating this little guy required extra attention.
Like all young puppies, Joy spent most of his time sleeping. By his third week with his rescuing family, he had made a best friend. A white Siberian tiger stuffed animal accompanied him on his adventures. As Joy continued to grow bigger with each passing day, it became apparent that he would fit right in with his new family. It was time to introduce him to the other dogs.
Finally, a few weeks before Christmas, the team at Howl of a Dog received wonderful news: Joy had found a forever home. “A family from the Netherlands fell in love with Joy and wanted to adopt him,” the organization shared. Needless to say, this pup was thrilled to go home to a family of his own.
The rescuers met the adoptive parents halfway through the continent, in Vienna. They brought along Joy’s favorite toy, which the puppy would keep by his side as a source of comfort as he entered his new life.
Joy’s story reminds us what we can do when we give a little love. Please SHARE this with your friends and family.
