A Sweet Story About A Wounded Dog And All The People Who Worked Together To Save Him.

Dogs are either born homeless or they get abandoned by their owners, and when this happens, they become vulnerable to the dangers of the world. Now most people are way too busy thinking about their own problems to stop and take care of a four-legged pooch. But fortunately, not everyone turns the other cheek to the growing problem of stray animals. And that was actually quite fortunate for a stray who would become known to the world as Columbo. This pooch was in a ditch in the middle of nowhere, and if fate hadn't intervened and put a bunch of cyclists on his path, there's no telling what might have happened to him. But even after he was rescued, Columbo's road to finding love and a forever home was a painful one.

A young Great Dane mix in distress was discovered by a group of cyclists in Columbus, Georgia.

When one of the cyclists realized that the pooch had a broken leg, he decided to put the dog on his back and give him a ride into town to get some help. Had the cyclists not found him, his fate might have been a grim one.

When the cyclist and the dog got into town, they met a woman by the name of Andrea Shaw.

Shaw was in Columbus, Georgia on a business trip. When the dog saw her, he jumped into her arms, almost as if he had picked her to be the one who would look after him during his time of need, and that's exactly what she intended to do for him.

The dog had been found near a sewage plant, and Shaw soon realized that he was badly injured.

Not only was his leg broken, but he was bleeding. In fact, he had bled on Shaw when he got close to her. The cyclists explained to Shaw that the dog was homeless and she knew right away what she had to do save the dog.

She adopted the pooch and named him Columbo, but she needed to get him some medical attention.

Shaw took Columbo to an emergency veterinarian clinic. That's when she discovered that Columbo had multiple fractures on his leg and had a broken toe. It became clear that the pooch would need to undergo surgery right away.

The surgeon had heard of Columbo's plight and decided to lend his expertise to help the dog.

The surgeon rearranged his entire schedule so that he would be able to operate on Columbo. This made Shaw smile because she was simply amazed by how everyone was eager to help her new dog out so that he'd get a second chance at a happy life.
