Lending a hand to animals in need is just something that Green Monsters do. It’s almost second nature for us to drop whatever we’re doing if we spot a lost dog or cat and do everything in our power to get them to safety.
In this instance, one kind man took it upon himself to give an injured stray dog a loving forever home. On Imgur, this man explains that he came across a “huge mop of fur” three days after he moved to Los Angeles. Upon closer inspection, he found that the mop was an injured dog that was struggling to walk.
After waiting a few minutes to see if anyone was coming to claim the little dog, he flagged down a cop to see what he should do. The cop told him to either take the dog home or leave it on the street, so he packed up the pup with the help of his friends and went home.
The dog’s fur was so matted he couldn’t tell whether it was a boy or a girl, but he opted to go with girl for the moment and dubbed her “Lady.”
He called animal control and they didn’t have any records of a missing dog that matched Lady’s description, so he set about giving her a hair cut and adjusting to the idea of adopting a new friend.
It took two hours, but when the grooming process was done Lady was a whole new dog! Literally, he also discovered that Lady was, in fact, a boy. So, “Mr.” Lady he became.
Next day, Mr. Lady was off to the vet. He didn’t even flinch when getting all his shots. After this check up, he was headed straight to the groomer for a proper haircut.
Can you even recognize him??
Mr. Lady’s rescuer was in the midst of launching a new business and managing an incredibly busy work schedule, so the thought of adopting a pet had never crossed his mind. After falling in love with this “little cheeseburger” (as he calls him), he made it work.
“I found this little trash-monster in the streets of LA, only two days after moving here. I feel like it was meant to be and I’m meant to own this dog, for whatever reason that ripples into the future I don’t know,” he writes on Imgur.
Enjoy the future together, friends!
