Donna Lochman of St. Louis Stray Rescue saved a dog who was in terrible condition. The dog was unable to walk and was extremely emaciated. It was heartbreaking to see a canine in such a state.
When they found Riley, they could see it in his eyes how thankful he was that someone was finally trying to help. There must have been dozens of people who passed by him but never stopped to lend a hand.
The team brought him back to the rescue and proceeded to assess him. Once all the tests were done, the team wanted Riley to go outside and get some fresh air.
Since he can’t walk, they put him on a red wagon and pulled him around. Riley was on top of the world. He saw the world from a whole new perspective. He was no longer on the streets, and he is finally getting help.
This was a new beginning for him. A few days later, Riley was able to stand on his own. He even started to walk one step at a time.
After a few weeks, he was walking nonstop. He just kept going, and it was a fantastic sight. To see a dog who was in dire shape, become this happy and adventurous one.
Riley even has a family now. A man came to the rescue to adopt a dog. The man has been following Riley’s story and was excited to see him in the rescue.
He made it official and adopted canine. Riley could not be happier to have finally had a family. He now has a family who loves him.
The family knows what he has been through, and they will do everything to make Riley’s life a happy one. Thanks to the people from St. Louis Stray Rescue, he is now healthy and as happy as can be.
