Just a few days ago, my husband and I picked up a homeless puppy (around 1 year old) on the side of the road.
He was found starving, scarred, afraid and left for dead on the side of the road to fend for himself. We don’t know how long he had been there, but most of the over 30 puncture wounds on his face were already healed and only the biggest ones still needed attention.
Rusty was probably a victim of the dog fighting industry and is thought to have been a “bait dog” where he was brutally attacked and almost killed for training purposes.
What amazed me about him was his sweet soul and loving heart. I just could not believe that after being attacked and abused in the past, he remained so pure. There is no shadow of bitterness, nor anger in him… only pure LOVE!
He instantly fell in love with our 3 dogs and he was very gentle and sweet with all of us. He would give kisses and cuddles and would not let you pass him without petting him first.
Rusty truly showed us what true love is, love that Jesus teaches us about, love that is the bind of perfectness (Colossians 3:14). Being severely abused by people in the past and being attacked by many dogs, he still kept his heart warm and loving.
This world can easily teach us how to hate and get bitter, how to lose peace and live in fear and distrust… the world we live in lacks mercy, it can destroy who we are and what we have.
Good news is we have the Guide in life and all the resource we need to actually live and not just survive. God’s unlimited Power is available to all of us 24/7 365 days a year. He is always eager to listen and help.
Please make love the focus of your life, please fill your days with good deeds and keep overcoming evil with good (Romans 12:21).
P.S. We promised Rusty that nobody would ever hurt him again and are hoping you can help provide the home and family to make our promise a reality. If you or anyone else would like to make him a part of your family, please let me know by living a comment below or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
He is currently in St Thomas, Virgin Islands and he will be easily flown to his new home.
