A video of a South Carolina rescue dog is melting hearts all over the world. The video was shared on Tiktok by Abigail Arellano, a Pet Care Clinic Vet Tech from Oconee Humane Society. In the video, Arellano’s new rescue dog can be seen holding her hand. The video has almost 7 million views and 1.3 million likes.
The video has captured the hearts of millions because of the adorable gesture of the rescue dog holding Arellano’s hand. Arellano wrote, “I adopted this dog and he held my hand the whole way home.”
Oconee Humane Society shared the story of the rescue dog, Loki, and the Pet Care Clinic Vet Tech, Arellano, on Facebook. The shelter stated that Loki got very sick and had to be treated at the shelter’s new Pet Care Clinic. Arellano took care of Loki and even medically fostered him while he was recovering.
Loki integrated well into Arellano’s family, and her young son fell in love with him. When Loki was well enough to return to the adoption center, Arellano just could not let him go.
In a video update, Arellano shared that her husband agreed to foster Loki but warned her not to get too attached to the pooch. However, when it was time to return Loki to the vet, both Arellano and Loki were very upset. Arellano then pleaded with her husband one last time to keep the dog, and thankfully, he agreed.
Thanks to Loki’s viral video, Arellano is also using the opportunity to highlight all the amazing work Dr. Paul Black is doing for animals, including Loki, at the Oconee Humane Society. She called him a “true MVP” for volunteering and doing surgeries on the shelter’s animals. “He does not get paid a dime and does it completely on his own time,” said Arellano.
Currently, Loki is responding well to treatment and is doing well with his new forever family.
Rescue dogs are so special, and they all deserve a chance to find loving homes. Adopting a rescue dog not only changes their life but also changes yours. The feeling of giving a loving home to a dog in need is indescribable.
There are many reasons why one should adopt a rescue dog. Firstly, when someone adopts a rescue dog, they are saving a life. Many dogs are abandoned or surrendered by their owners and end up in shelters. By adopting a rescue dog, someone is giving them a second chance at a happy life. Secondly, rescue dogs can be loving and loyal companions. Many rescue dogs are incredibly grateful for their second chance and show their appreciation through love and loyalty. Thirdly, adopting a rescue dog is more affordable than buying a dog from a breeder. Adopting a dog usually includes initial medical care, such as vaccinations and spaying or neutering.
If someone is thinking about getting a dog, they should consider adopting a rescue dog. Not only do they get a loyal companion, but they also give a dog in need a second chance at life. Giving a rescue dog a new home and a loving family is one of the most rewarding experiences someone can have.
In conclusion, Loki’s story is a heartwarming example of what can happen when someone adopts a rescue dog. The video of the rescue dog holding Arellano’s hand has melted hearts all over the world. Arellano and her family have given Loki a second chance at a happy life, and he is responding well to treatment.
