David Fredman was on his way to work when he saw a dog that appeared to be hanging on a power box beside a highway. David immediately called 911 and ran towards the dog to rescue him. The dog’s feet were barely touching the ground and he was struggling to breathe. David cut the electrical cord tied around the dog’s neck. He realized that the poor dog suffered from suffocation. The unfortunate dog was unsteady and stumbled when he tried to walk.
David brought the dog to KC Pet Project in Kansas City to check his health condition. The staff member of the shelter found a microchip and was able to contact his owner. Turns out that his name was Max, and he was reported missing by his owner named Dee Vaughn. Max was a senior dog, so Dee was very upset when he got lost.
Dee realized that Max was missing that morning and had been looking for him for hours. He suspected that what happened to his dog was intentional because someone phoned and asked him about a lost dog. The spot where David rescued Max was about one mile from the Vaughn home. Dee didn’t believe that Max could wander that distance as he had mobility issues.
Dee was relieved when he saw Max again; in fact, he personally invited David to his home to say thank you for saving his dog. Max could have died if David hadn’t taken action immediately. He didn’t think that he would see his dog again after being lost; therefore, he was genuinely grateful that someone brought Max back to him.
David was a hero because he saved Max from a certain death. To save the dog’s life was important to him, he couldn’t let it die without doing anything. David’s quick action saved Max and the dog’s microchip allowed Max to be returned to his worried owner.
When Max was lost, Dee hoped and prayed that he would return safe and sound. Fortunately, Max was saved and brought back safely to his home. Dee has no idea how Max ended up so far from home but intends to follow all leads. He will also keep a closer watch on his senior dog to ensure his remaining years are happy.
