Puppy found in ditch with muzzle taped shut thanks the man who saved him

The vets felt devastated after they realized the tape was there for more than 4 or 5 days. How could someone be so cruel?

They got even sadder when they did a thorough examination. Sadly, the dog’s skin was in a terrible condition and one of its tiny legs was broken. The poor soul was only four months old.

The staff treated the pup with antibiotics and made sure they provided him not only with professional help, but a comfy bed, a bunch of toys, and endless love too. 

Kovacich commented the case posting on her Facebook page, saying:

“In my 30 years of working here, I never thought I’d see this … in real life.”

The niece and Kovacich organized the reunion which triggered flow of emotions.

“I was awestruck because I didn’t think he remembered me,” Hoelter said. “They sat him down and he ran right to me.”

Louie recognized the man who gave him a second chance for a better life and treated him with lots of doggy hugs and kisses.

However, he couldn’t stop thinking what would have happened to Louie if he didn’t decide to take a walk that night.

“It makes me think God has a purpose for everyone, to be honest with you. We all have our calling,” Hoelter said. “I’m going to have to walk more often, but I sure don’t want to find more dogs under the bridge.”

Louie is indeed one lucky dog. He had a rough start in life, but he eventually got his happy ending.
