Dogs are called man’s best friend because of their millennia-long history of loyalty and companionship with humans. Sometimes even the man proves to be the best friend of dogs. Take for instance this example: A pilot flew 750 miles to rescue a dog from being killed in North Carolina, USA.
The dog named Adrienne was allegedly abused and thrown on the street. When the poor pup was collected from the street, she was observed by veterinary doctors and found to be having a severe bladder prolapse. The vets suggested a surgery. But due to lack of rescuers, she was put into a kill shelter and would have been euthanized within 24 hours owing to her health condition. After knowing about the plight of Adrienne, a dog charity interfered and agreed to fund its treatment but it needed to take the animal from Granville County Animal Shelter, North Carolina to a vet in Stamford, Conneticut.
Unable to do so, the charity lost all the hopes to save the dog before 45-year-old Paul Steklenski came to the scene. According to a Deccan Chronicle report, a former tank trainer Steklenski heard about the dog and came forward to help. The man who now runs an animal charity soon flew from his home in Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, to North Carolina.
Steklenski reached the kill shelter and took the dog with him. Moreover, not only Adrienne, the man also took along with him 13 other abandoned dogs in crates in the back and flew back to the airport in Westchester, New York. It all together became a 750-mile round-trip for him. Reaching New York, the dog was then driven to an animal hospital in Stamford, Conneticut. In the vet, she went through a surgery to reinsert her bladder. The dog is under observation of health experts and recovering well, said the report. According to it, the dog will get a new home by rescuers after getting well, where she will be able to live along with other pups Paul Steklenski has rescued. Meanwhile, other rescued dogs have been taken to non-kill shelters.
