One dog owner was surprised to discover that his Pit Bull has found a new friend. For several days, a stray dog would enter his yard and would look for his pooch. The two would play, and the man would sometimes give the small street dog something to eat and drink. But then he noticed something peculiar about the stray. Upon closer inspection, he realized that the pup had a severe eye injury. The injury left the one-eyed dog looking like a pirate.
To help the one-eyed dog get medical treatment, and at the same time, get him off the streets, he called a rescue organization. Thankfully, his call was received promptly, and rescuers came to his home right away.
Avast ye mateys!
The injured stray dog was still in the yard when the rescuers arrived. In order to keep the dog calm and keep it from running away, they asked the caller if they could bring out their dog, Blue, to play with the stray. The owner agreed, so he took Blue out, and the two sat together. The rescuers then placed a foldable fence just in case the one-eyed pup decides to bolt. Apparently, there was no need for it.
The injured stray was very calm and friendly. When one of the rescuers sat beside them, he allowed her to pet him. She then put a leash on the dog. As their protocol, they scanned the dog for a microchip. He had one, so they called his owner. Sadly, they didn’t want the dog anymore. The old owners also said that they already had a new one.
They then focused on his injured eye. They took the dog to a hospital to get it checked. Sadly, there was no saving the eye anymore. He had to have surgery to have the eyeball removed before it gets infected. They decided to call him Pirate.
Despite all he had gone through, Pirate became a happy and feisty dog. He was brought to a foster home to recover after his operation. When he got better, he was put up for adoption. It didn’t take long for someone to fall in love with Pirate. He found a new home and now lives with someone who wants him.
