It was 105 degrees outside on one steamy day in Washington state.
A construction worker named Sebastian Bushey was on his way home from a tiring day at work, when he spotted something moving on the side of the road.
He slowed down to get a closer look … and realized with consternation that it was a puppy!
The poor pup was wandering around, obviously lost or abandoned. And in that baking heat, it probably needed help…
Though he was exhausted, Sebastian pulled over and hopped out.
He neared the puppy, who appeared friendly … but Sebastian couldn’t have predicted what would happen next!
Before he knew it, six furry creatures had shot out of the nearby bushes, and all of them were headed straight for him!
But Sebastian wasn’t frightened, and neither was the puppy.
And that’s because those furry animals were 6 more puppies!
That’s right, there were 7 puppies all told; Sebastian must’ve stumbled on a group of brothers and sisters, recently abandoned. As he said:
“I was in disbelief that I found not one, but seven puppies in the middle of nowhere, just left to die in the 105 degree heat.
“The puppies seemed very timid and nervous to come towards me because the bush was the only shade they had around them.”
Well, Sebastian couldn’t very well take them all home, but he knew he had to get the pups to safety.
So, he took them to a local animal shelter, where they received the medical attention they so desperately needed!
And the latest update is a very positive one:
“They all have been named words that mean ‘river’ since I found them next to the Grand Ronde River in Washington state.
They are doing well and will be available to be adopted on August 14 from the Lewis Clark animal shelter in Lewiston, Idaho.”
But can you imagine stopping to help a little pup … only to find that six more are hiding nearby? 😀
