“I came across a posting about her

On a pet rescue group’s website;

And I had a feeling in my gut,

That I had to go see this dog.”

 

Lucas’ Father

 

As every pet rescuer knows and understands

There is something special about rescued pets

They truly appreciate their second chance at life

And this is one of the best rescued pet stories yet

 

Lucas suffers from a debilitating metabolic disease

His loving father thought a service dog could help him

But he was crushed, when he learned they cost thousands

So he began looking at homeless left behind dogs on a whim

 

He eventually came across Juno, an emaciated Belgian Malinois

She’d been abandoned, and scheduled for euthanasia at a pound

Luckily for her, a canine rescue group, had posted her dire plight

And thankfully for Lucas, by his loving father, she was now found

 

He saved Juno from Death Row, and decided that he could train her

Today, attentive, loving, appreciative, Juno, never leaves Lucas’ side

That ‘special bond’ now exists, between this boy and this rescued dog

A fantastic ‘win-win’ situation that fills every animal rescuer with pride

 

“Today, diligent Juno alerts us when Lucas is about to have a seizure,

Or if his oxygen levels drop too low; she has saved him several times;

It really feels as if it was meant to be – my son and this rescued dog,

And today, you don’t see one without the other being very close by.”

 

As every pet rescuer knows and understands,

There is something special about rescued pets;

They truly appreciate their second chance at life,

And this is one of the best rescued pet stories yet.

 

And on a side note, marvelous Belgian Malinois like Juno,

Because of their intelligence, are used by law enforcement;

They’ve also earned special recognition in our armed forces,

Where a canine just like Juno helped Navy Seals find bin Laden.

 

Help Us Save Another Life;

Adopt A Homeless Animal;

Experience This Special Bond;

It’s Both Marvelous And Magical.

 

And You Can Read My Latest Submission

To ‘The Great Animal Rescue Chase’

In The Author’s Den Story Section.

Exceptionally beautiful and extremely moving
What a moving story! We all need dogs for different purposes of our life. How many problems do we have which the dogs can easily solve. Sadly we are not turning to these beautiful souls at full swing.

MY...MY, ED....HOW WONDERFUL IT IS TO SUBSTANTIATE, THROUGH THIS STORY, THAT EVERY LIVING THING WAS CREATED BY GOD FOR A PURPOSE. WE WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND A LOT OF THINGS THAT GOD ALLOWS, BUT THIS OFFERING...MAKES IT SO PLAIN THAT JUNO WAS CREATED TO BE A VALUABLE 'FRIEND' TO LUCAS. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

A heartwarming story.....it sounds like a story to be shared in schools or written into a book. Dogs are always amazing; each one has its special personality and skills, and it seems there is always that quality of faithfulness that can't be denied.
Thanks for sharing!!!
