Deputies find and save ailing stray dog on Thanksgiving day

A Thanksgiving miracle of sorts played out in Pulaski County, Arkansas, yesterday. An ailing, stray dog was doing his utmost to stay warm when his sad predicament was noticed by a kind-hearted deputy.

The sickly dog, dubbed Blue, was found and rescued by Deputy Nichols with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office. The rescue, and help that followed from other good Samaritans, was recounted by the sheriff’s office, which wrote:

On this Thanksgiving, we are THANKFUL for YOU. Everyone came together after we found this little guy shivering in the cold along Arch Street. Deputy Nichols named him Blue. From the deputies, to dispatchers and you — everyone joined together to find Blue shelter and medical help.

With accolades for those who are trying to save the sickly dog:

We cannot say THANK YOU enough to Chenal Valley Animal Hospital and Southern Hearts Kennel for doing what they can to try and save Blue.

Southern Hearts Kennel updated Facebook followers about the rescued pup:

Blue will get a very thorough examination and medicated bath tomorrow, but for tonight he is warm and safe with his stuffed doggie from the Sheriffs Office and new blankie from us. He is obviously extremely malnourished and surely emotionally scarred, but he’s in amazing hands now and we will find him a perfect forever home.

Blue is safe and receiving the care that he needs. Anyone who is interested in helping him can do so by making a donation:
