After seeing that a person’s car door was open, a stray dog jumped in apparently in search of a place to rest, without imagining that this action would change her life.
The story began last year when this naughty doggy jumped into the car of Bill Shaver, who had forgotten to close the back door of the car when he rushed to the bathroom at a gas station.
Although his wife was sitting in the front of the car, the dog quickly climbed up and curled up in the back seat as if she knew the woman all her life.
The couple was returning from a fishing trip in the state of Missouri. They decided to make a stop and that’s when the dog appeared. When they noticed that she was not thinking of getting off and was approaching to be petted, they decided to take her to a vet.
The doctors bathed and examined her, where they told the family that the animal showed signs of struggle and wounds caused by the presence of ticks and other infections, indicating that it clearly had no other owners or had run away from home.
The couple decided to give her all the support she needed to recover her health, so they drove her home. She quickly adapted and began to play in the yard because she was already determined to stay with them. The couple adopted her and named her River.
River now enjoys a life full of friends, love and pampering, something she undoubtedly always deserved.
