Dog “Thanks” Man Who Rescued Him

Gregory was on a list no one wants to find themselves on: he was set to be euthanized at the Franklin County Shelter and Adoption Center in Ohio. That’s where a woman Schenley Hutson Kirk found the dog. The dog, a two year old beagle, had been found as a strary in Obetz, Ohio. The little dog, who it is believed was abandoned by his owners, was healthy by all accounts but one: he was heartworm positive. While this is an easily treatable issue, it was one the shelter could not afford (it runs around $400 for treatment) so they listed Gregory the dog as rescue only. If he wasn’t rescued by May 3, he would be euthanized.

Schenley and her husband Joe run a rescue called Hound Rescue and Sanctuary and stepped in to help Gregory and save him from certain death. So, Shenley’s husband Joe headed to the rescue in Ohio while she stayed home to care for the other dogs in their care. On the drive home, he took selfies of himself with Gregory the beagle to document the ride home. During the two hour car ride, Gregory decided he wanted to be as close to his new friend Joe as possible. Though Gregory was tethered in the backseat for safety, he realized there was enough room to snuggle up to Joe’s shoulder. He first placed his paw on his shoulder and then quickly decided that wasn’t enough. He soon had his head resting on the man’s shoulder, almost as a way to thank him for rescuing him.

Gregory is now being treated for his heartworm and is on the road to recovery thanks to his rescue. He is a very loving, sweet dog that just loves to be around people and other dogs. Once he finishes treatment, he will soon be able to find a new home!
