Dog Finds New Home

That headline, at face value, isn't very newsworthy.  But this story takes the meaning of those words quite literally.

Jack and Emily Jokinen live in Philadelphia with their daughter and their dog, Jorge Pawsada. Last month, in the middle of the night, something very unusual happened in their home that would change their family.

In the wee hours of December 14th, Emily got up to feed their one-month-old daughter. After, she went down to the kitchen to get a pacifier. That was when she first saw the puppy, curled up on the floor, sleeping. But...the Jokinens don't have a puppy. Her mind couldn't make sense of what she was seeing. She went upstairs to wake Jack.  He was just as confused, understanding the words she was saying while not being able to make sense of them.

"The front door was locked, the back door was locked, windows closed, everything, " Jack said, (and yet) "there was kind of this mystery puppy in our house, and we had no idea how it got here."

Upon closer inspection, it turned out that the intruder was an extremely thin dog. She was wet and cold, so hadn't been inside for long. But how?

Much of the mystery was soon solved by checking the security camera mounted outside their front door. Jack had taken their dog out just before going to sleep. When he returned, he pulled the door shut, but it didn't latch. By 3:16 am, when the cold and wet dog trotted by on the sidewalk, the Jokinen's front door was wide open. After a couple of tentative starts, she decides to go inside. About 20 minutes later, the footage shows a good Samaritan walk by. He notices the open door, sticks his head in to look around and then pulls it shut. Aha!

The dog was in very bad shape and the Jokinens decided to take "Suzyn Pupman" to an emergency vet clinic. They learned that she was about 8 years old and only weighed 19 pounds, about half of what she should weigh.  She had a hurt leg, worn paw pads, dental problems, and lots of fleas.  She'd been on her own for a while. And she had no chip. They authorized doing whatever needed to be done to help her.

With the cold weather that arrived shortly after, it's hard to say what would have happened to her if she didn't find them. Jack took to social media to tell the story and most of the comments suggest that "Suzy" has already picked her new forever home.  They have looked and continue to look for her family, but in the meantime, it looks like Jack and Emily have a new dog!  She's putting on weight and fitting right in with the rest of the pack.

As Jack summed it up, "Of all the bad things that could happen when your front door is left open in the middle of the night, to end up with a sweet dog who just needs a good home, I mean...wow."

Young girl and her cat

Shelter Volunteer Finds Her Lost Cat

Hannah Rountree lives near the town of Roseburg, OR, right in the middle of the state where the Umpqua River crosses I-5.  Hannah was in kindergarten when she got her first pet.  When her neighbor's cat had kittens, Hannah was allowed to pick one.  She picked the most energetic one with the best spots.  Spunky.  She and Spunky bonded instantly and were soon inseparable friends.

When Hannah was twelve, the family went on vacation and as was normal, Spunky stayed at home.  But this time, when they got back, they found out that he had gotten out and was missing.  Hannah was devastated.  They searched, put up flyers, and contacted the local shelter.  Months went by.  Eventually, Hannah realized that he wasn't coming back. 

Three years passed and Hannah, now 15, decided to volunteer at Saving Grace Pet Adoption Center, the area's pet shelter. On her second day, she walked into the catio, and one particular cat caught her eye.  It sure looked like Spunky but it couldn't be. This cat was called Bear, he was kind of big and not very energetic.  But still, his markings looked just how she remembered them.

“I pulled up a picture on my phone and held it right next to him and the markings were just perfectly matched, and I was just very starstruck by that. I was like, ‘No way, this is happening?’” Rountree said.

It was definitely him.  It turns out that he'd come to the shelter back in September.  He was brought in as a stray and the staff had named him Bear.  Within weeks, he was adopted and that may have been the end of this story.  Luckily for Hannah, Spunky at 10 wasn't as Spunky as he had been when he was younger.  The family that had adopted him was looking to adopt a mouser and returned him when they realized he was more of a lounger.  He ended up back at the shelter just in time for Hannah find to him.  Amazing!
