If you have ever needed proof that dogs could be heroes, then you’ll love this story.
The tense situation began one day in Califormia when one dog discovers…
The story begins with one heroic hound named Murphy from Muscoy, California. This incredible dog sensed that another dog, Marley, was in danger.
Murphy had found Marley lying on the road with injuries from getting hit by a car. This brave dog didn’t want to leave her alone, so he stood by her side even as cars raced by. Murphy wanted someone to see him so he could find help for this poor dog-in-need.
Murphy wouldn’t leave Marley’s side, and his courage was met with…
Luckily, one compassionate human saw Murphy and immediately parked and called for help. Dream Fethcers: Project Rescue was the team that answered the call as fast as they could.
But even with their timely arrival, the rescuers knew that Marley was a long way from safety. Faith Easdale, one of the rescuers, had this to say about Marley’s condition:
“Marley was in terrible distress and pain and breathing heavily. We weren’t even sure if she was going to make it.”
Murphy stayed close and promised that she would not be alone
Faith and her team had to try. So they carefully lifted Marley into their rescue vehicle. Before they could drive off, Murphy hopped in the back of the car and rested his head on Marley’s stomach. The scene was straight out of a movie and warmed hearts around the world.
The rescue team discovered that the problem was a lot bigger than they thought…
Once the team arrived, Marley was brought in for an x-ray to determine her injuries. That’s when the team discovered that she was pregnant with 11 puppies! So now the lives of 12 dogs were on the line. But the I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue team were far more than up for the task.
The team posted the following on their Facebook page:
“Marley was found on the side of the road where she was left broken after being hit by a car. Thankfully, she was rescued by a wonderful team of people and got the help she needed. She went through 2 surgeries to repair her rear leg and was about to have her shattered front leg repaired when they found out she was expecting! Due to her pregnancy, they had to put treatment for her front leg on hold and she’s now in a cast.“
It was a touch and go procedure until…
The team worked diligently through the sensitive operation. Murphy backed off as they worked, perhaps sensing that Marley was now in good safe hands. He trusted the team to save the poor mother and his trust was well rewarded.
Because Marley gave birth to her puppies and was now on the road to recovery.
But whatever happened to everyone in this story?
This tense situation had the best happy ending possible.
Two years after the accident and Murphy, Marley, and all the puppies are doing great.
The rescue group helped hero Murphy find a loving home since it was clear he’d make a wonderful companion. Marley is now in the care of Faith Easdale, one of the incredible women who rescued her on that day.
As for Marley’s pups are in loving homes with owners who still keep in contact with Faith. You can read more on this Facebook post.
