The state of Minnesota, north of the United States, has a typical continental climate of the upper Midwest, so winters are quite cold and snowy. However, last winter, more snow and cold due to winter storms hit the whole country and have certainly affected many human and animal lives.
A special case is that of Emily Raguse , a resident of Eden Praire, Minnesota, when she was in the basement of her house and noticed an animal sticking its head through a window while it was snowing outside. Immediately, the woman went upstairs to help the frozen animal in her garden.
When Emily found the animal, she noticed that it was a yellow doodle that was curled up and covered in snow; The woman searches for a blanket to wrap him and keep the dog warm so he stops shivering.
Raguse then called his neighbour, who asked the local police for help; When police arrived, the woman said she was out of town for the weekend and didn’t know how long the puppy had been sitting outside her window during a winter storm.
Officers looked at the tag the puppy was wearing on his leash and verified that his name was Buddy and that he had someone named Patsy Sumpter, a neighbor in the area.
Emily contacted the dog’s owner and she said she searched for the animal for 5 nights, meaning Buddy had to face a brutal winter outdoors for 5 nights.
Buddy’s owner reported that the dog is 13 years old and that he faces serious health problems, the dog has been blind for years and is also battling cancer, it really is a miracle that he survived those five days just because everyone in his house they feared for the state of the puppy.
According to Sumpter, the dog got lost after a night walk in the woods that he usually takes alone, the puppy always comes home on his own, but his owner explains that “the weather changed and it started to snow more and more. I felt so powerless.”
Sumpter says she looked for him all Thursday, but couldn’t find him because the weather was so bad. Fortunately, Buddy was close to home and now she’s back in his home.
Buddy will spend the first night back home, covered in blankets near the fireplace, and the next morning, he will go to the veterinary clinic. “He wants to come home and be with us,” concludes Buddy’s owner.
Emily Raguse shared the news along with photos of Buddy covered in snow on her social media, and people celebrated that the pup would no longer suffer from the low temperatures outdoors.
Good thing Buddy has found his home! Share this story with your friends.
