Although most people nowadays prefer to adopt dogs from animal rescue centers rather than buy them from pet stores, many dogs in animal shelters are still overlooked. Dogs who are too old or have behavioral issues are less likely to be adopted. When dogs are not adopted, they are euthanized.
Kailey, a dog, was an example of a dog that no one wanted. She spent more than a year in an animal shelter before being adopted. She was, unfortunately, just returned to the shelter. But, again, nobody wanted Kailey, all because of a specific behavior caused by past trauma.
Whenever someone touched Kailey, she would snap at them. Nobody knows much about her past, but it is suspected that she was abused in the past. Because of this behavior, she was repeatedly returned by the people who adopted her. Euthanasia was even considered at one point. Fortunately, a woman named Jacqueline Berlin agreed to foster Kailey.
Jacqueline saw Kailey’s potential and asked her followers on social media to give the dog a chance. When a woman named Suzy Chandler noticed Jacqueline’s post, Kailey’s life began to change. Suzy fell in love with Kailey and decided to adopt her and provide her with the best possible forever home.
Suzy didn’t realize that Kailey was about to do something that would save her life as well. It all started one night when Kailey began to act out. She began barking at Suzy and her family because she was acting strangely. Finally, Suzy realized Kailey was trying to tell her something.
Suzy made the correct decision by following Kailey outside the yard. Kailey eventually led Suzy to the side of the yard. Suzy realized they were in danger at that point. The smell of gas was overpowering, and she could hear the loud sound of pressurized gas escaping.
Suzy dashed back home and dialed 911 for assistance. Knowing that the gas leak could catch fire and explode, she evacuated her family, including Kailey. Thankfully, disaster was averted. The gas leak was stopped when emergency services arrived. But who knows what might have happened if it hadn’t been for Kailey. Here’s a video of Kailey and how she saved her family from a potential disaster.
