A soldier made the necessary arrangements for Wade, his beloved dog, before being deployed to fight in Afghanistan. He left his mix Mastiff with a trusted friend to care until he returned. However, the soldier and Wade were betrayed.
Wade was delivered to Hernando County Animal Services as a stray, but when the shelter scans his microchip they discovered that it was actually owned by a deployed soldier.
An investigation is underway to try to understand how someone could leave a soldier’s dog who promised to care for it. The shelter posted on Facebook to try to find another home to care for the sweet boy until his owner returned.
Wade weighing 110 pounds was described as “very strong and powerful, needs an experienced guide: the dog feeds on the energy in the kennel, but has been good with the staff. Wade has a mass/mass tennis ball size in the ankle area of the left front leg. It doesn’t seem painful, but the dog’s paw is crooked.”
Several people offered to take the Wade until his father returned. However, the perfect situation presented itself when a large cageless animal ranch offered to take care of him.
“Wade has left the building with Big Dog Ranch Rescue (BDRR)!
THANK YOU Big Dog Ranch Rescue for supporting this guy. It is BDDR’s policy and intent to keep Wade on the rescue/ranch living a cage-free happy life until his soldier gets home and can meet.
Happy Life Wade: You were unique in your class and we will all miss you,” her country Animal Services posted.
Big Dog Ranch Rescue has rescued more than 27,000 dogs and is the nation’s largest cage-free ranch. The 33-acre rescue in Florida was “founded on the idea that every dog deserves to live and, most importantly, live a full and happy life.”
Wade receives a shower of love and affection while waiting for his father to return home. Hopefully, that happy reunion will happen soon.
it’s cutest dog in the world
