Abandoned Puppy Had Given Up On Life, Until He Was Saved By Love.

The Everglades in South Florida is 1.5 million acres of wetland where animals like deer, crocodiles, bobcat, Florida panther, venomous snakes, and alligators, call home. Although the landscape there is breathtaking, it comes with a lot of warnings to stay away from dangerous areas.

The Everglades National Park allows for pets to be present only in designated areas and must always be on a leash. This is for the protection of the wildlife, humans, and the dogs themselves. Consequently, visitors are not likely to find canines wondering around alone. But that is exactly what a couple walking around the Everglades found.

They didn’t know if he had been abandoned or got lost but the pup was terrified of being there. The good samaritans stayed with the canine for four hours, refusing to leave it on its own. When the Broward County Sheriff’s Department showed up, little did the pup know its life was about to change.

When the couple found the canine, they didn't know if it was alive or not.
