The stray dog did not know that entering the open car for a search of a place to rest would change her life.
This story started last year when Bill Shaver, who had forgotten to close the back door of his car when he ran to the bathroom at the gas station, was never expected to see a doggy in his car when he came back.
His wife was sitting in front of that car when dog quickly climbed up and curled up in the back seat as if she knew the woman all her life although they just met there for the first time.
The couple was on their way to back to their home after a fishing trip in the state of Missouri. They stopped for a moment on the way and that’s when they saw the dog. After noticing that she was not planning to get off, as instead, she was approaching to be petted, and so they decided to take her to a vet.
The doctors bathed and examined her, where they learned that the animal shows the 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.
