Two Beagles Thrown from Moving Vehicle on Interstate Reunited After Two Weeks Apart

Share

The old Latin maxim says, “Man is a wolf to man.” That’s undeniably true.

Yes, humanity perpetuates terrible crimes against its own. But do you know what else they wound? Animals.

Just think what happened to a pair of precious beagles in New York. According to The Associated Press, the two dogs were riding in a moving vehicle on Dec.12, 2018.

While they motored down the snowy highway, their owner did something unthinkable. The person allegedly rolled down the rear passenger-side window and threw the dogs out.

Things could’ve ended very poorly for the two dogs.

But WBNG reported that a truck driver saw the incident. He stopped his truck and came to the animals’ aid.

The dogs were in bad shape. WBNG reported that one had only suffered from some road rash and was able to move on its own.

The other, though, got seriously injured. When police arrived, the trucker surrendered his sweatshirt so that they could keep it warm.

First responders did all they could for the poor pup. They soon learned that the animal suffered from bruised lungs and broken ribs.

When the beagle struck the highway, it also fractured two of its legs. Sadly, veterinarians at Colonial Animal Hospital in Ithaca said they couldn’t save one of its limbs.

They were forced to amputate the leg. The pair, who were dubbed Trooper and Adam after the people who saved their lives, had to be separated due to the surgery.

However, this tale has a happy ending. According to Inside Edition, Trooper and Adam were reunited when Connie and Roger Miller decided to adopt both of them.

“We were interested in getting a couple of dogs, (and) we always wanted to have two together,” Roger Miller said. “Can’t wait to get ’em home.”

Video of the dogs seeing one another after their long separation has surfaced and it’s absolutely adorable. In the footage, Trooper (who had lost his leg) gets brought out in a cage while Adam strains at his leash.

The two sniff at and nuzzle each other, their tails wagging mightily the whole time. Todd Hubik, who handles adoption the Broome County Humane Society, was sad to see them leave.

“It’s really a bittersweet day, but it’s nice to see them go home to such an amazing family,” he said. “The Millers are really lucky folks, and they’re lucky, lucky dogs as well.”
