A dog rescued
A dog rescued with little hope of survival.
Wesley, who lives in Montana USA, was spending a few days in beautiful Belize. One day he was kayaking off Belize’s coast, exploring and photographing a few smaller islands.
Suddenly, he saw something moving on one of the islands, near a fishing shack. The small island was completely deserted, with only one citizen- a puppy!
Sadly, the puppy was skin and bones and needed immediate attention. Wesley’s vacation was ending in less than 2 days, but that didn’t stop him from taking the puppy with him.
The hotel staff was very helpful, bringing food for the dog, and calling friends who could help with the situation. Together they found the nearest veterinarian office.
Had to hire a boat
Wesley had to hire a boat to travel to the vet’s office. After being there for two hours, Wesley took the only available cab to the airport. Due to his scheduled departure, he arranged the rest over the phone. The dog had to go through quarantine.
The vet’s office was closed for the weekend, and they had to find a foster home very quickly. Wesley found a woman named Melanie, who was part of the humane society.
They named the dog Winston, and this was the first time Winston experienced a proper home.
Wesley and Melanie were communicating for the next two months while waiting for Winston’s final tests. She was sending photos, and Winston truly transformed into a beautiful, healthy young dog.
From Belize to Texas to Montana
After a few months, Winston was finally ready to travel to Montana, to his forever home. Wesley and his family including two dogs were already patiently waiting for the new family member.
Winston traveled from Belize City to Dallas Texas, where Wesley would pick him up to travel to Montana.
All of this happened in January, and there was a lot of snowfall in Dallas. Wesley could only hope that the airport wouldn’t shut down, or any other inconveniences.
Luckily everything went OK, and they were ready to meet at the airport!
A dog rescued in Belize recognizes Wesley
It only took a few seconds, and Winston immediately recognized his savior. They were both very happy and excited. Wesley took him to the hotel, where he got to meet the rest of the family, including two dogs!
This was Wesley’s and Winston’s story. Somehow, the faith brought them together on a small island in the middle of the ocean.
