Man Drives 200 Miles To Save The Life Of A Dog About To Be Put Down



Royce the dog had been through a lot during the course of his life. The poor dog was found as a Miami stray and was covered in cuts and bruises when he was first located. Royce was adopted after being taken to the shelter but the new owners brought him back right away. He was adopted again after that. Unfortunately, he was brought back yet again as well.

He’s got an adorable face but he also has boundless energy. This can be a tricky combo for those who are not used to a dog who is this quick witted and impulsive. He requires a fair amount of supervision. Once he was returned again, he was deemed unfit for adoption. A volunteer at the shelter decided to share the dog’s plight with their Facebook friends.

Hopefully, the post would find its way to the right people so that Royce could find a home as quickly as possible. David Sebba was one of those people. When he saw the post, he knew that he had to intervene as quickly as possible. Royce was simply too special of a dog to allow him to slip away like this. David knew that his chances of finding another home were slim to none.

That is why he added the dog to his family as quickly as he could. Time is always of the essence in these scenarios. There is one obstacle that needed to be cleared first, though. Royce was residing at a Miami shelter and the dog was located in Orlando. Instead of using this as an excuse to back out, David decided to hop in the car and make the trip right away.

This is the type of selflessness that truly warms the heart, doesn’t it? David saw a dog that was in desperate need of his help and decided to take action. He was not worried about the trip. He simply wanted to make it to the shelter before they had a chance to close. He made it in the nick of time and the volunteers on hand allowed him to meet his new pal.

Royce was just happy to get the chance to play outside. He had spent too much time cooped up inside of the shelter. David eventually took the dog to his mother’s house so that he would not disturb his cats and the two became the best of friends right away. This pairing has been wonderful and it never would have happened without David’s help!
