Dogs, which are some of our closest friends, also usually show feelings or appreciation.
This tale, in which a rescued dog gives heartfelt thanks, is a fantastic example of this.
The West Palm Beach Fire and Rescue Team was dispatched and when they arrived they were horrified to see a badly burned dog tied to a tree.
A dog with severe injuries howled with anguish. Captain Gregg Gordon, a firefighter, freed the stranded dog and took it to the animal emergency room.
Smokey, the guard dog, was not only badly burned, but also stressed and confused.
Smokey wasn’t the only one fighting for his life; so did the veterinarians. When the excellent Dr. Latimer examined the wounded dog, he found terrible burns on its back. However, he had no doubt that Smokey would recover.
Smokey received blood transfusions, daily bandage changes, and other necessary care for several weeks.
Smoke’s health has improved due to the compassionate, persistent care and efforts of Dr. Latimer.
He was excited and scared when he first arrived at JPESC, but because he was cared for by kind nurses and veterinarians, he learned to trust them and eventually began to feel at ease and safe.
Captain Gordon often visited Smokey, and one day he decided to temporarily take Smokey home, hoping to encourage and facilitate his rehabilitation there.
A week later, everyone saw something touching when Captain Gordon took Smokey to a life-saving clinic for treatment.
Smokey jumped up and hugged his recovering vet as soon as he saw him.
In this way, he wanted to express his gratitude to the good guy who not only saved his life, but also gave him his loving heart, care and comfort throughout all these weeks of therapy.
Fortunately, Smokey quickly not only made a full recovery, but also found a loving home.
Dr. Caitlin Thomas, another veterinarian, legally adopted him and gave him the new name Feng.
Fen is currently in love with his new man and, ideally, very content.
