A 17-year-old, grizzled stray, named Rocky, who has been in and out of a shelter since 2012 and a young woman, named Beth, had no idea where fate was leading them the day Beth strolled into the shelter loaded down with all kinds stuff of she had collected from her military community to donate to the shelter.
It was love at first sight and the next thing Beth knows is that she is walking out with Rocky. And while his age may show a bit physically, his spirit soars.
Rocky is living proof that it’s never too late in life to get a second chance. It was this amazing young couple from Maryland, US, who changed Rocky’s life forever.
His new mom wanted to say this to Rocky :
I took you on knowing we were going to have to take extra care of you. Knowing that one day you weren’t going to make it outside in time to use the restroom and I would have to clean it up.
I knew one day I was going to have to carry you up the stairs when you no longer have the strength to do it. I knew you were going to eventually lose your hearing and eyesight and we were going to have to spend extra money to make the house safer for you. I knew one day I am going to have to say goodbye to you.
But until then you are the best gift I have ever gotten and I’m really sad I couldn’t give you the best 17 years you deserved, but I promise you’ll have a great life from now to the day I have to say goodbye!
What a fantastic turnaround for Rocky! We hope the rest of his days are filled with love and joy with his new parents.
