A cyclist out for a ride in the woods with some friends ended up saving a stray dog’s life.
Jarret Little was cycling in the woods near Columbus, Georgia when he spotted the dog, who appears to have been hit by a car.
They gave the dog water and food and afterwards Jarret lifted the dog onto his back and cycled into town to look for help. But even he could not have imagined what happened next.
“They say the odds of winning the lottery are one in a million. This pup was the winner this week. Amazing series of fortunate events,” Jarret wrote on Facebook.
They immediately found Andrea Shaw when they arrived in downtown Columbus and were visiting a local bike shop to get the dog more water and food. Andrea was in town on a business trip from Maine and ran into Jarret and saw the dog. She immediately offered to help, “Columbo”.
Adventures of Columbo [Andrea] wrote, “I [Columbo the dog] hugged her because she spoke so nice to me. I bled on her new shirt. She must’ve liked it though because that’s when she called her husband and said ‘I’m saving this dog – he’s bleeding and broken and I’m not leaving him.’ Her hubby – Joel Shaw replied “Ok. Is your hotel pet friendly?'”
Now Columbo is settling in to his new life and meeting his new family.
He’s making friends with Andrea’s horses, including Luquillo, a 13 year old German Warmblood.
Also wonderful is how Andrea took Columbo into her heart and not only got Columbo the medical care he needed but has also given him a forever home.
