Emily Jokinen and her husband had become the parents of a little girl . They felt that her family was complete with her cute baby and her puppy George.
They had no plans to add a new member to their family, but an adorable dog chose them and they couldn’t resist.
During the night, Emily woke up to find a pacifier and make sure everything was okay with her daughter. However, when she went downstairs she discovered that they had a very special visitor.
“My wife woke me up and said: ‘Everything is fine with the baby, but there is a puppy in our house.’ I didn’t understand what she was talking about,” said Jack Jokinen, Emily’s husband.
Jack and Emily took a long time to understand what had happened. At that time it was December and they wondered if it was some strange Christmas gift .
“We did not know what to do. We didn’t know if she was from the street or if someone was looking for her,” Jack said.
They checked the house carefully and realized that they had left the door open by mistake. The furry one had entered there in search of a place to take refuge from the cold .
“I went downstairs and in the middle of our house I found what looked like a little puppy that looked drenched from the rain,” Jack recalled.
They spent the rest of the early morning pampering him and a couple of hours later they called a vet.
The dog had no chip and everything seemed to indicate that she had lived on the street . They decided to call her Suzy and worried about how skinny she was. All of her ribs were terribly visible and she looked somewhat weak.
“Suzy had a rough past but now she is in a safe place. Sometimes I think if I hadn’t left the door open, Suzy wouldn’t have made it through the winter,” said Jack.
In addition, he had many ticks and some minor injuries on his legs. The poor thing hadn’t led an easy life but she had chosen the perfect humans for her.
Jack and Emily realized that they couldn’t let her go. They set out to give her all the help she needed from her and gave her one of her George’s dog beds from her.
A few days later, the furry girl showed that she was adapting wonderfully to her new family. She not only got along with the other dog but she also turned out to be very affectionate with the baby. She seemed really destined to live there.
“She is a happy dog. She is so grateful every time we give her food and love,” Jack said.
Jack shared the story via his Twitter account and before he knew it the peculiar rescue had gone viral. We hope cute Suzy continues to regain her strength and enjoy her new life to the fullest in the warmth of a safe home.
