A person I know once told me that dogs are the kindest and most loyal animals in the world. Naturally, I believed that right away, and agreed.
However, I am still constantly surprised when I see this display of kindness in real life and just how much all of them care for other beings.
In this story, we will talk about a sweet dog who saved an animal in the forest and brought it to his mom.
What Did He Bring?
When Winston was first introduced to his new mom, it happened on a completely ordinary day, when his mom was visited by a friend and her dog.
The dog was naturally very playful and loved to run around the yard and explore. Since it was near a small forested area in California, the dog happened to find something while he was there.
It was some kind of an animal. He thought it needed help, so he brought it back to his mom.
Turns out, the dog actually saved Winston, a squirrel. His new mom noticed that he was still very young and she didn’t know what to do with him.
She made sure he was comfortable in her house and checked on him every once in a while to see if he was still breathing.
One thing she did notice was that Winston had an injured leg and a swollen face.
The local rehabilitation center in California did not accept any new animals, so his new mom had to get creative.
She went to the internet for advice. There was a strong possibility that he was separated from his mom, as she was looking for a new location for them and the dog just happened to be there.
Since he had a very strong desire to help Winston, he did what he believed was best.
Winston’s New Life
After a little while, Winston’s mom managed to get a hold of some formula for him, which he loved consuming. He really got his strength back after this and became more lively.
She tried finding the burrow he came from, but it was really difficult. In the meantime, he stayed in her house until he was older.
When he got a bit older, his mom would let him play outside, and each day, he would explore a new part of the yard.
However, she always made sure that Winston stayed close due to traps in the surrounding area.
Winston’s mom also noticed that he took more interest in rabbits, and so she adopted a rabbit called Artemis.
Now, he had a new friend who he loved playing with all the time. Aside from his new buddy, his mom also bought him a lot of new toys, and there was no shortage of those.
Even though Winston’s mom never expected that she would have a squirrel, she cherishes every moment she has with him and is looking forward to spending many more years with him.
Who would have thought that such an accidental moment of a dog helping a squirrel would lead to a lifetime of joy for both Winston and his mom.
