Heroic Man Rescues Dog During Storm, Ends up Saving Her Life
Animals| | By Jason Owen
What would you do if you saw a dog alone in a storm? One man decided to take the pooch in, and it ended up saving her life.
Benoit Denizet-Lewis was traveling across the country doing research for his book, Travels With Casey, when he stopped at a Najavo Indian reservation. There, Denizet-Lewis stumbled upon a pack of stray dogs. Though the dogs were excited when Denizet-Lewis fed them some treats, he noticed something peculiar about a black female dog. Interestingly, when a terrible storm passed through the area, she just stayed outside in the rain.
Something told Denizet-Lewis that he couldn’t just leave her behind, so he took the dog to a local animal shelter, which quickly discovered that the dog was sick. In fact, she would have likely died within weeks if Denizet-Lewis hadn’t taken her in for proper care.
The shelter started Rezzy – as she would be named – on her road to recovery, but Denizet-Lewis wasn’t going to take her back to the reservation. He adopted Rezzy and continued with her on his road trip.
