Although everyone deserves a second chance, not everyone is lucky enough to get a second opportunity in life. This is true, especially for stray dogs. Even if they are rescued by animal control, many of them are sadly being euthanized in order to make room for other stray pups.
For a few dogs like Roadie, they are fortunate enough not only to find a new home, but they also found a new purpose in life. Roadie made headlines when Johnson County deputies found her tied to a tree along a busy highway. The abandoned pup came with a note from her previous humans.
It turns out that her previous owners had to give her up because they couldn’t afford to feed her anymore. Roadie’s humans lost their jobs because of the pandemic, and they are hoping that the next people would take good care of her. Well, they were lucky that Chief Jeremy Pell found out about Roadie.
Chief Pell is from the White River Township Fire Department in Michigan. Roadie caught his eye, and he thought that the doggo had the potential to become their next search and rescue pooch. Chief Pell explained that the German shepherd mix had a stance and look that made him consider him for the job.
Well, he was absolutely right. When Roadie entered the doors of their headquarters, they knew she was the right doggo for them. Chief Pell explained that the type of dog they wanted shouldn’t be too calm but shouldn’t be too excited either, and Roadie had that perfect balance.
After officially adopting her, they named her Rosie. She was a big hit with all the firemen and women in the department. She is currently undergoing training, and she is performing pretty well. Chief Pell is positive that Rosie will pass her certification in a few weeks.
