Heroic Dog Rescues Disabled Veteran, Later Adopted as Companion
All dogs deserve a perfect forever home, even those who appear a bit unusual. Dogs with special needs require a lot of love and need to find the human being that understands them .
And occasionally these dogs wind up discovering kindred spirits that are just like them . That’s what occurred recently, after a leg amputee veteran acquired an unique rescue dog that had also lost its leg .
A stray German Shepherd called Kane gets struck by a car and gravely breaks his right leg. When he came to the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California, his leg had to be amputated.
Yet Kane wasn’t let down by the loss of a leg. According to NBC Los Angeles, the three-legged dog “always runs like he had all four legs.”
Kane was offered for adoption. It is typically difficult to find a home for a dog with a disability: potential adopters prefer “normal” dogs over shelter dogs.
But when Dane Orozco arrived to the shelter in search of a new pet, he immediately realized Kane was the perfect dog for him.
It turns out that they had one key thing in common: they both lost their right leg.
According to the Inland Valley Humane Society , Dane is a veteran who lost his leg while abroad. Part of the reason he wanted a new pet was to cheer him up.
I regularly become melancholy, so my manager asked me what I loved. What would make you happy? I said, “I’ve always had dogs, but it’s been a long time since I’ve had one,” he told NBC Los Angeles.
As soon as he saw Kane, standing cheerfully on three legs, he knew it was written. “As soon as I saw him, I fell in love with him,” Dane stated. “I had this immediate connection with him. Look at him, he’s perfect. »
“I just had to have it. I know the feeling of being pushed aside because of it. «
Kane is now extremely happy with his new owner. According to NBC, Dane brings him to work so he’s always there to support him when he needs it.
The Humane Society was pleased to see Kane move to such a perfect home. They shared the heartwarming story in a TikTok video, which went viral with almost 13 million views.
“We wish them the best in their future endeavors,” the shelter added.
How incredible that Kane and Dane met one other – it truly is a relationship that was meant to be.
Having a buddy who shares your disability may be fantastic for your self-esteem, and we’re so thrilled these two met.
