One California couple was convinced they would never see their beloved Dachshund again. But they were in for quite the surprise.

When the couple could no longer afford the vet bills for their suffering nearly 14-year-old dog, they made the difficult decision to leave him at a shelter to be put down. But then, after a rescue center was able to help the dog, the owners are set to be reunited with their now healthy canine companion, Yahoo reported.

Part of my ongoing attempt to get more good news stories on this board. Here, we have the PDSA which provides free vet care to poor people (including our two cats), Leave No Paws Behind seems to be the closest thing you have in the States.

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31

I am glad especially for the dog. He will be so happy to be with his people again.

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle
