Construction workers in Austin, Texas, were in for a great shock when they heard tiny cries coming from a pup. They scoured the area searching for the source of the noise but to no avail. They first thought that the puppy must be trapped somewhere in the tons of construction debris lying around. What they do not know is that the cries were coming from above.
When the workers finally figured out that the noise was coming from the sky, they saw a hawk flying through the air with a small puppy trapped in its talons. And as they watched the predator soaring with its prey, they suddenly saw the puppy free itself from its grasp. The hapless Chihuahua was free falling.
Luckily for the pup, the workers rushed to him as he landed and took him to the Austin Animal Center for medical treatment. The small dog was shaking in fear, but thankfully, he was alive. Aside from the cuts and scrapes made by the hawk’s talons, the dog did not suffer any significant injuries. So he was put on an IV drip, wrapped in a blanket, and given a chance to rest and recuperate.
The staff at the animal center were amazed at the pup. He beat the odds and survived an attack by a Hawk and falling from the sky. It was indeed a miracle that happened to him. It was also helpful that the workers were there to bring the pooch to the hospital. And also, scare the hawk from going for the pup again.
After his hospital stay, the dog was brought to a foster home. There, Renee Keyes, his foster mom, named him Tony Hawk. It’s a name that greatly applies to what he has just gone through. And while Tony was staying in the foster home, his story has gone viral. This brought on hundreds of applications for his adoption.
One woman who lost her senior Chihuahua was the lucky person to adopt Tony. Georgia Bramhall lost his 9-year-old Chihuahua Brentley, not knowing what happened to him. So when she learned about Tony, she didn’t hesitate to meet him. The two got along very well, so they decided to give it to Georgia. Maybe its fate or destiny, but it seems as if Georgia and Tony were meant to be with each other.
