All dogs who belong to a family should be microchipped. This is the best way to ensure that they will find their way back home should they run away or go missing. And this was a lesson that the owners of this runaway husky almost learned the hard way. Luckily for them, there was a good Samaritan who came across the pup.
This man was firefighter Maxx Powell. The off-duty fireman was on his way back home when he spotted the Siberian husky running along the train tracks. Being a dog dad himself, Maxx pulled over to make sure the pooch was safe. When he stepped out of his truck, however, the husky ran away from him.
This sent Maxx into panic mode as a train could come any minute. Little by little, the firefighter earned the husky’s trust, and not long after, the man was giving the pooch some belly rubs! Maxx figured that someone must be searching for this pup as the husky was well-groomed, and she was very sociable.
So he decided to wait around for some time, hoping that the dog’s owners would show up. When nobody came, Maxx decided to take her to the nearest veterinary clinic to check if she has a microchip. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to find any. So, the good Samaritan took the husky home and posted about her on social media.
At this point, Maxx was already starting to fall in love with the pupper. So he already made up his mind that if nobody came for the pooch, he would adopt her. On the other hand, Maxx’s wife didn’t like the idea as they already have two pet dogs.
Around ten in the evening, Maxx received a text message. It was the pup’s owners. The man was happy for the pooch, but he admitted that it was a bittersweet moment when the owners came for their fur baby. We’re pretty sure Maxx will be getting a Siberian husky as his next dog. Watch this good Samaritan’s encounter with the friendly husky in the clip below.
