Growing up is difficult, especially if you don’t have a responsible parent or guardian to show you the ropes. Unfortunately, many people do not fully realize
– or do not fulfill – their responsibility to help helpless babies of all kinds find their way in this world-
Two unfortunate puppies from Ohio found themselves in the care of one such irresponsible guard, not through their own fault. When their owner decided he could no longer bother to take care of them. He simply threw the young brothers into a local park to fend for themselves. They were only three months old.
One of these puppies wandered off and was later found in a neighboring county. The other brother was not so lucky. This innocent puppy strayed onto the railroad tracks and was hit by an oncoming train. The accident happened on the same day
Amazingly, the young dog didn’t die, which is really a testament to his resilience, strength, and the quick actions of first responders.
However, the poor creature certainly didn’t survive the incident unscathed.
Despite surviving emergency surgery, the puppy – which the Sheriff’s department has since Trooper.
perhaps because he’s already put up with so much — had lost an eye, his tail, and both hind legs.
Sheriff Richard Jones said of the former owner of the puppy:
“I’m sure Trooper will find a great home forever, but his limited quality of life could have prevented the individual from making a better decision.”
Trooper is currently living with a new foster family,
who reports this playful young pup is healing up great and getting ready to learn to use a wheel-cart as soon as his stitches come out next week!
In the meantime, the Animal Friend’s Humane Society in Hamilton, Ohio, is already on the hunt for Trooper’s forever family. If you think that’s with you, reach them on their website or via their Facebook page. Let’s find this sweet boy the forever home he deserves!
