Lost Dog Stays At Site Of Family’s Car Crash For 13 Days Before Being Discovered

Kathy Wilkes-Myers was walking along the highway one day when she noticed something bizarre. It wasn’t unusual to see a stray animal wandering the open roads, but there was something about this Rottweiler that told Kathy she wasn’t a stray.

“I could just tell right away she was somebody’s baby. She just didn’t act like a stray dog to me,” Kathy told CBS. The dog, Ella, was emaciated, surviving only on the water from a drainage ditch.

Although it isn’t unheard of for someone to dump a dog in the middle of nowhere, Ella was communicating, somehow, that she wasn’t thrown away. Kathy did some digging.

She remembered there had been a terrible car accident right where she found Ella. When she returned to the accident site, she noticed something: It was a pile of wreckage and personal items.

Ella had been collecting what was left of the car accident — what was left of her family.

“She was hoping her family could come back. But they couldn’t. They couldn’t come back. It just breaks your heart,” said Kathy. “It was like she was sleeping with them — or waiting with them.”

Kathy assumed the drivers must have been dead, but she called the highway patrol anyway.

“She gave me the mom’s name and the dad’s name and the mom’s name was Michelle. And I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is their dog,’ ” she said.

The full story? Ella was thrown from the car during the accident. The rescue crew didn’t see her and she spent 13 days scavenging and waiting for her family to return.

But there’s more: the family survived. They thought Ella was dead. Thanks to Kathy’s big heart and detective work, she was able to reunite Ella and her humans. Watch the sweet reunion below!

Please SHARE if you think everyone should be as thoughtful as Kathy when they encounter a stray animal.

They Introduce Their ‘Lifeless’ Son To A Dog. When THIS Happens, I’m Crying!

Caleb Howard was just 6 years old when a head-on car collision left him with broken bones and a traumatic brain injury. His heartbroken parents weren’t sure how quickly he’d be able to recover — or if he’d make it at all — as much of Caleb’s progress was nearly impossible to recognize.

One day, it was suggested that a dog named Colonel step in and act as Caleb’s therapy animal. His parents were desperate for a solution, so they obliged. The video below follows Caleb and Colonel’s journey together. You’ll see an immediate boost in Caleb’s awareness, and how this relationship marked a turning point for Caleb’s family in their belief in his ability to recover.

Caleb learned to gain control over his hands again by playing fetch with and petting Kernel. He gained mobility by taking the dog for short walks and being more active than he had been in a very long time.

Colonel the therapy dog also helped Caleb find excitement and joy again. Who would have thought this very special dog would hold the key to Caleb’s recovery? Before his parents and the doctors knew it, Caleb made strides in leaps and bounds, helping to prove the power of therapy animals.

Though this video was posted to YouTube in 2009, it’s just as powerful as ever. Dogs truly do have healing properties!

Watch the emotional and heartwarming video below, and please SHARE this with all your fellow dog lovers on Facebook.
