Dan O’Grady is a truck driver from Akron, Ohio, who is very fond of animals.This tale has a happy conclusion due to his love for all four-legged beings.
O’Grady noticed a small dog by the road while driving through Jacksonville, Florida.He turned off the highway and returned to assist the puppy because he could not leave him in that state.
The man had high hopes that he would be able to rescue the dog before anything bad happened.O’Grady made the fortunate decision to save the dog, a Jack Russell Terrier, because he was right where he had last been seen.
The dog, on the other hand, had other ideas.With a desperate bark, the puppy bolted into the woods after O’Grady tried unsuccessfully to get it to come to him.
He was followed by the truck driver, and what he discovered was incredible.It is evident that the small, fluffy white rabbit and his terrier companion were abandoned by their previous owners.
The puppy was filthy and thin, and the little rabbit was in pretty bad shape.O’Grady made the decision that they both required rescue.
The terrier was content and calmly followed O’Grady back to the truck after the truck driver carefully picked up the rabbit.That day, both animals became passengers.
The truck driver stopped in the parking lot to buy a salad for the rabbit and gave the puppy meat for sandwiches.
He then drove to an animal shelter and discovered that, despite the fact that the staff there would gladly adopt Highway, O’Grady’s dog, there were no facilities available for keeping Interstate, his rabbit’s name.
O’Grady and Interstate then embarked on a lengthy journey back to Ohio, where a shelter known as the Summit County Animal Welfare Society housed rabbits, guinea pigs, and other similar animals after leaving the dog at a Florida shelter.
They were delighted to provide Interstate with lodging.O’Grady, on the other hand, abandoned him and continued on his own.If that day’s truck driver with a big heart hadn’t stopped, who knows what would have happened?
We are aware that Highway has remained permanently at home in Florida, and Interstate is awaiting adoption in Ohio.
