Dog That Was About To Be Put Down Gets Rescued And Adopted By A Couple That Drove For Hours To Get Him

More and more animals are getting abandoned with each passing day all around the world, and the numbers are increasing even faster due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The lockdown has had more than several people abandoning their pets, be it due to the fact that the owners have passed away or the fact that they couldn’t take care of them anymore because of some unfortunate circumstances.

However, not all such stories have sad endings. Recently, TikTok user Ashton Hart came to find out that his grandfather whom he hadn’t seen in 6 years had passed away from Covid-19. Ashton was shocked by the news, but was also concerned whether or not his grandfather had any pets that might’ve gotten left behind.

His gut feeling proved to be true as he found out that his grandfather indeed had a dog, and without thinking any further, Hart and his partner went over to get him. When they visited his grandfather’s house, they found an obese dog, now named Oat Milk Latte, who was scheduled to be put down due to the fact that he was left alone and had a lot of health complications.

“Oat Milk is a very sweet dog. He has the most gentle temperament I’ve ever seen. When we took him to the groomer for the first time, they raved about how gentle and kind he was, and everyone who meets him falls in love with him. I don’t know how he got to be that way—my grandparents were abusive with their animals. Sometimes you just get lucky and get a sweet soul, I suppose.”

“He isn’t the only pet we have, we also have a 3-legged tortie cat named Yakisoba, two rats (Biggie and Smalls), and a hamster named Pumpkin!”

It is true that Oat Milk was Ashton’s grandfather’s dog but we were also curious whether they had any other reasons to adopt Oat Milk.

“My husband has really been wanting a dog for a while now—but we had never met Oat Milk before going to pick him up, so we didn’t know anything about him.

We were fully prepared to take him, rehabilitate him, and then put him in a different home if he wasn’t a good fit for us—but we won the lottery, and he’s the sweetest boy. He’ll be staying in our family for the rest of his life for sure! It’s no question.”
