A Heartwarming Tale of Rescue and Unbreakable Bonds.
One night, while we were out having a few cocktails, I overheard a man mentioning a dog he was trying to get rid of. He said if he couldn’t find a home for the pup, he would abandon him along a highway. I immediately offered to take the dog, even without knowing what kind of breed he was. Let’s know more about Griffy.
