A visit to the veterinary clinic is a dog’s worst nightmare. Any dog owner can agree with this fact. Our doggos hate going there but we still take them because it’s for their health. Our pups are terrified of the vet clinic, but perhaps this woman from Avalon Park in Chicago will be the first human to be scared of going there.
We know, it sounds crazy, but Nelly Roa’s pupper Toby went missing after he was taken to the vet. The German shepherd had a cut under his right eye, so he needed some stitches. Nelly brought him to the MedVet in Avalon Park and left him there.
After a couple of hours, Nelly got a call from a MedVet staff telling her that they lost Toby, who probably escaped from his kennel looking for his mom. Nelly was shocked after hearing the news, and she took to social media right away. Her post about Toby went viral instantly and it started the “Find Toby Movement.”
Volunteers from the area braved the winter storm to find this lost pooch, and eventually, the Chicago Police Department got involved. After four days, Officer Ricky Podgorny, saw Toby running across the road as he was heading home. To think that Officer Podgorny was about to end his shift, this doggo is lucky!
As expected, since the pooch had been by himself for several days, he was very skittish and ran away from the police officers who were trying to help him. But when they got the scared pupper cornered, they called on Nelly to calm her fur baby down. The relieved fur parent just called Toby by his name and the pup ran into her arms.
The officers who were involved in Toby’s rescue were very happy for the doggo and his human. They shared that searching for missing doggos is indeed part of their job, and they absolutely love it when they help make a happy ending. Nelly was very grateful to the officers and the people on social media who made her post viral.
