A man out walking, one cold freezing night, certainly didn’t expect to come across a little puppy, crying for help. What he discovered was heart breaking!

Bob Hoelter didn’t know that winter’s night, what was about to happen. He usually drove his car to the local store but somehow, that night he opted to walk instead, to get some exercise. It’s just as well he did!
He heard the puppy whimpering in the dark
As the guy walked through the darkness, he thought he heard a whimpering noise coming from underneath a bridge that he was crossing. He peered into the darkness of the night, but couldn’t see anything untoward. However, the whining noise carried on and he just knew he had to investigate.
Crawling down onto his hands and knees at the side of the bridge, Hoelter wasn’t sure what he would find. Luckily, he had a flashlight in his pocket, and this enabled him to search in the darkness. What he spotted though, tugged at his heart strings. A little puppy, scared and frightened, shivering and alone. However, to make matters worse, the tiny pup had his nose wrapped tightly around with electrical tape.
Rush to get the little puppy to the Vets hospital
Hoelter knew that for the puppy to stand any chance of survival, he needed medical treatment fast. He rushed the tiny dog to the Griffith Animal Hospital, wrapped inside his jacket. Here, the Vets began to provide all the necessary care and treatment that the puppy needed. They removed the tape, which had probably been wrapped around his muzzle for several days. Antibiotic injections and treatment for a broken leg soon helped the pup to feel better.
The cute puppy finds a new, loving home
The Animal hospital posted on their Facebook page about the tragedy that had befallen the little puppy. It wasn’t very long before dog lovers, Doug and Mary Witting went to visit the puppy at the surgery, and instantly fell in love with him. They offered him a new home and gave him the cute name, Louie. Because of the abandoned pup’s new found fame on social media, Bob Hoelter the puppy’s rescuer and the tiny dog were reunited and had an emotional get together. Of course the lucky puppy recognised the hero who had saved his life that night.
