Who knows what would have happened to a dog named Smokey if a kind stranger hadn’t dropped everything to rescue him. Darlene is an animal lover, not an animal rescuer, but a chance conversation with her manicurist would prompt her to save Smokey’s life.
Darlene was visiting the nail technician she liked a lot when the woman told her about her son’s unwanted dog. The son was refusing to provide food or water to the dog.
Darlene assumed the technician was feeding the dog, when, in fact, Smokey was slowly starving to death. The manicurist finally confessed that she wanted to “put the dog down” but didn’t want to pay the $200 fee to do so.
Darlene requested a photo of Smokey and when she saw his photo she knew she needed to head over to the woman’s home right away and get the dog.
What follows is the story of how Darlene’s heroic actions saved Smokey’s life and gave him a second chance at happiness. It’s an incredible story! Not everyone would be prompted to act as Darlene did, but I’m very glad she did.
