As the day drew to a close, one woman named Ashley prepared to leave work and return home. She drove down her street on her usual commute, writes ilovemydogsomuch.
As Ashley got closer to her house, she noticed a cardboard Amazon box at the end of her driveway. That was unusual. Perhaps it was left there by mistake.
Ashley got out of her car and approached the box. She thought she heard movement inside. Even though it had been a long day, something didn’t feel quite right. That’s when she heard faint sobs. Oh my goodness! Ashley quickly grabbed the box and ran inside her house with it.
Inside was the tiniest puppy. Ashley had no idea what to do because he was so small! She immediately dialed a local veterinarian. He told Ashley what to do with the puppy until he saw them the next day. Ashley attempted to feed the puppy a special formula from a bottle. He was clearly hungry. Jackson was the name she chose for the puppy.
Jackson was only three weeks old at the time. This was far from ideal. He needed to spend time with his mother. He couldn’t control his body temperature, and he couldn’t eat on his own. He required constant supervision and hands-on care. The following day, the vet instructed Ashley on how to properly care for Jackson.
Ashley took Jackson home and introduced him to her cat, Dan. They hit it off right away! Dan taught Jackson how to play the guitar! Ashley soon realized, however, that something was wrong with Jackson. She had no idea what was wrong, but a mother knows. She called the vet and made an emergency appointment for the puppy.
Ashley’s heart breaks when the vet discovers the likely cause of Jackson’s callous abandonment. Nonetheless, she refuses to give up on the teeny-tiny puppy. Check out The Dodo’s video below to learn more about Jackson and to see what happens next. It’s a fantastic story!
