A homeless man discovered the dog, described as a boxer mix, huddled under a car. The man had little offer, but what he did possess, he shared with the injured dog.

Rocky was wrapped in a blanket and fed a portion of the man's food. That man's generosity touched area rescuers and inspired them to lend the injured dog a hand.

Jae Malik, a volunteer with an area rescue organization, stated:

If a homeless guy can give him a blanket, who are we to walk away?

there's another burned dog named spyder that needs surgery. the owner was taken to the icu and her house was destroyed. she assumed her dog was dead, but firefighters saved him. the dog is the only thing she has left. helping paws is looking for items that people would like to donate to their auction to pay for the surgery. if you have anything you wouldn't mind shipping off, please send them a message on facebook.

Why can't it enjoy time with its master and familiar environment if it's trained properly?

Just once in awhile you actually see man's compassion,too bad it's so rare that it's newsworthy. Wishing this dog and man good fortunes in the future.
