When Jarvis Smith arrived to work at DeKalb County Animal Services one morning, he was met with an unexpected sight. There was sleeping man curled up at the front door to the shelter. This man was homeless and had lost his beloved dog.
He had traveled to the shelter during the night hoping that in the morning he would be able to find his furry friend. Unfortunately, the man's dog was not at the shelter as they were in the process of moving locations. That's when Jarvis let the man know that he would have to travel to their new location to see if his dog was brought in there.
The homeless man told Jarvis that he had no money for train fare, so this kind employee took it upon himself to give the stranger money and directions. In this heartwarming video, you will see the precious moment when the homeless man is reunited with his beloved pup. What an amazing reunion!
After a dog’s owner was hit by a drunk driver in his own home, he was rushed to the hospital. Even though he was taken to a hospital by himself, his loyal dog Burke showed up at the emergency room, concerned for his best friend.
An intoxicated truck driver crashed into Jeffrey Groat’s Idaho home last week, injuring the family. Burke the Great Dane was so concerned about the well being of his owners, he left the house in search of them and found them at the emergency room.
He was taken in by an individual that found him hanging out near the hospital’s entrance, but after the story was in the paper, it was obvious what happened.
"[Burke's] been hanging out in the guy's living room," Brandi Bieber, a family friend, told the Coeur d'Alene Press. "They picked him up Thursday night near the emergency room. We think maybe the dog followed the ambulance and sounds of the sirens."
Burke must have followed his family over to the hospital, following the sirens and ambulance.
While hospitalized with a broken collarbone, shoulder and ribs, Jeffrey repeatedly asked about his dog, who he thought had gone missing. Thankfully, the family was reunited with the concerned Great Dane.
"It was unbelievable," Groat told the Press, describing the surprise reunion organized by his friends. "It made my day. I didn't even feel my broken bones then."
