Residents of a Miami neighborhood were horrified to find a heartbroken dog named Joey in a cardboard box on the sidewalk. The neighborhood blog quickly warned residents of this disturbing situation, and resident Julian Rovito rushed to the scene to rescue Joey.
When Julian arrived, he found Joey sick but patiently waiting by the cardboard box for the return of his cruel owner. He was scared and hungry, but refused to be rescued by Julian. Julian and a few other neighbors gave him blankets and decided to feed him every day until they gained his trust.
Eventually, Joey realized no one was looking out for him and decided to let Julian rescue him. However, weeks of living abroad with pain and fear affected his health. He is now recovering with the caretakers of the “Animal Recovery Mission”.
The shelter informed that Joey was adopted! A woman named Cynthia Cruz Ortiz has taken him home and is helping him to be a happy dog again. Joey has a very kind personality and loves to hang out with her new family. We are so happy for him!
