A tourist couple traveling through Turkey came across a stray dog laying down on the market streets too weak to walk. They were so taken with it that they decided then and there to try and help him in whatever way they can. The only thing was, they had no idea how to do so.
Starting the rescue
When Nicky Holden and her family found the stray dog laying on the market floor in Turkey, it was so starved and dirty that the people around them were just walking over it and not paying it any mind. They tried to help it by bringing it some food and water even if they knew that would not be enough. But sadly, they had to leave it behind to head back to their hotel room since they didn’t know what to do next about him. So Holden and her husband searched online to find a way to help the poor dog.
Finding a plan
With their internet search not giving them any solutions, they decided to go out and talk to the locals to see what they can do for the stray dog. This was when they discovered a local shelter called Mad for Mutts that would be able to take the dog in. However, when they went back to the market, they had to search all around for him since he wasn’t where they originally found him. They finally spotted him in a back alley and were able to bring him to the shelter.
The ultimate rescue
Once the dog was brought to the shelter, Nicky and her family decided to make the ultimate rescue. They went ahead to arrange the adoption for this lovable dog. Five long months and a couple of thousand dollars were involved in the process of bringing the pooch home with them. But they have never been happier about it since they were able to find a dog to add to their family.
