Carrothers claimed that Pack trained Blaze and Bailey “to a T,” which explained why the dogs were so well-behaved. Unfortunately, no one seemed interested in adopting them, and folks at the center were getting worried that they might not find a forever home for the pooches. The dogs were then relocated to the SPCA’s adoption center at a PetSmart store in Dover. But would their odds of being adopted increase?

The center got word that Pack was slowly recovering from his condition, which was music to their ears. They figured he would probably want his dogs back too. And they were right! Blaze and Bailey covered Pack with kisses the moment he arrived to visit them. The staff was awestruck by the level of affection the dogs were showing their owner. Then Pack told them he was taking the pooches home. But there was a problem.

Since Pack surrendered the dogs so they could get adopted, Pack had to pay a $210 fee to get them back. This nearly caused him to suffer another heart attack. He didn’t have that kind of money. But Pack promised them he’d be back with the money. He didn’t care if he had to sell his car to a scrapyard. Then, he gave up his last $40 to the center as a deposit, and left.

Pack couldn’t get the money he needed. So, the next day, he returned to the center feeling heartbroken. He approached the front counter and requested to see his dogs one final time. But he was nervous. How was he going to live without his dogs? They were a part of his family, and he loved them more than life itself. But then, Carrothers gave him his deposit, and that’s when he felt a wave of emotions that came in like a wrecking ball. And what came next left him shaken.

Melissa Eagle also worked at the center and was aware of Pack’s situation. So, she did something truly amazing for him. She asked the center’s staff to raise the funds he needed to reclaim his four-legged friends. But that wasn’t the only surprised in store for him.
