A misfortune dog’s minor blunder turned out to be the start of a new existence for him. When Jack Jokinen neglected to properly close his front door one night, he went to bed entirely ignorant that he had set in motion a chain of events that would result in the addition of a new family member. Jokinen’s wife awoke him the next morning and informed him that there was a strange dog in the house. When Jokinen awoke, the dog was waiting for him in his living room. The dog was shivering from the cold, and neither Jokinen nor his wife knew where she’d come from. They were slightly concerned that the little dog wasn’t the only one hiding in their house because the door was shut. The mystery was solved after Jokinen decided to check the security footage.
The security footage showed that Jokinen had accidentally failed to close the front door securely.
After returning from a walk with his dog George, Jokinen attempted to close the door but failed to notice that it would not latch properly.
Later, the wind forced the door open, giving a stray dog the perfect opportunity to get out of the cold.
They learnt through the video that later that night, a poor small puppy wandered down the block and discovered the family’s front door was left open.
The stray, eventually named Suzy, can be seen in the video hesitating before making her decision and entering the house. She was drenched from the rain and freezing to the bone. She hid inside and was discovered the next morning by Jokinen’s wife. A closer examination of the film revealed why Jokinen and his wife discovered the entrance door shut. A nice Samaritan walked by and saw the open door after Suzie was safely inside. Before closing the door and continuing on his way, the man peeked inside and screamed to make sure everything was okay.
The good man had no idea that he had unintentionally made it impossible for Suzie to leave the house before the family discovered her. After discovering Suzie and determining how she arrived, Jokinen and his wife dried her off and gradually discovered how sick and in need she was. They considered surrendering her to animal control, but they were concerned that she would suffer in a shelter. Instead, they chose to look after her and ensure that she had the assistance she required.
They took her to the vet, who discovered she was nine years old and had never been microchipped. She had teeth problems, a paw infection, a heart murmur, and a flea infestation, among other things. Suzie’s ribs were clearly visible because she was so skinny and emaciated. Jokinen and his wife made the decision to keep her and get her the care she needed.
After posting Suzie’s story on social media, Jokinen received numerous requests to launch a GoFundMe in order to aid Suzie. Jokinen began a fundraiser for Suzie, but emphasized that even if no one gave, he and his wife would make sure Suzie had the assistance she required. Suzie is getting used to her new existence.
She’s now safe and cared for, and she’s loving the attention and love she’s getting from her new family. Her new comfy dog bed is a hit, and her new brother George is understanding of her wants and giving her some space while she adjusts to her new existence. Suzie is steadily regaining her health, and her Instagram fans have already noticed that she appears to be much better and happier.
Thanks to a sloppily closed door, the senior pup is now able to live out her life in comfort, surrounded by a loving family.
Jokinen and his wife adore their sweet new family member and count themselves lucky that something as unsafe as leaving their door open resulted in something so wonderful.
