Some dog owners did not plan on adopting a dog. Sometimes people accidentally meet a stray dog, and they end up taking care of it. The story of a man named Matt is a perfect example of how someone can accidentally become a dog’s guardian.
One day, Matt and his wife were surprised to see two dogs on their porch. One of them ran away when Matt approached. The other one stood in place because it was blind and didn’t realize what was happening.
Matt and his wife welcomed the blind dog to their home and gave it food. They later named the dog Lily and tried their best to make it feel safe. The dog eventually became comfortable in its new living situation after several days.
Ten days after rescuing Lily, a neighbor informed the couple that a dog was hiding in their barn. When the couple checked, they discovered a familiar dog. It was the same dog that ran away a few days back, and they speculated it was looking for Lily.
Matt and Irene knew what to do when they saw the stray. They set a trap and managed to capture it. Then they brought that dog inside their home, named it Mari, and ensured she was reunited with Lily.
The couple wanted to keep Lily and Mari, but they couldn’t do that because they already owned several dogs. The best they could do was find a new owner to take care of both dogs. Until that happens, Lily and Mari will remain in the couple’s care.
Rescuing dogs isn’t a new experience for Matt, but saving Mary and Lily made him feel a level of happiness he had never felt before. He couldn’t figure out why that was the case. His best guess is that there was unique satisfaction that came with reuniting two dogs that are siblings.
