When he arrived to the ER, Jake coded not only once but twice. They revived him both times. He was hospitalized for 21 days. It took about a week for him to open to his eyes. And it took about 2 weeks to learn how to walk again.

rescued Jake

One year ago today we rescued a dog who would prove that miracles do exist.

He roamed the streets of Cleveland, TX until he collapsed in someone’s yard and couldn’t continue on anymore. We found his frail, emaciated, wounded, bloody body barely clinging to life. There were trails of ants leading to his body and there were bugs eating his eyes which were sunken in.

He used every last might he had to lift his head and acknowledge we were there to help him.
We sped our way to the ER which was over an hour away, constantly looking in the backseat to make sure he was still breathing. We held his paw letting him know we were there with him.

When he arrived to the ER, he coded not only once but twice. They revived him both times. He was hospitalized for 21 days. It took about a week for him to open to his eyes. And it took about 2 weeks to learn how to walk again.

After being told by both of his vets that he wouldn’t survive and wouldn’t live a healthy life, here he is. Here he is as happy and healthy as can be.

Happy one year, Jake!
