In dog rescue stories, it is usually the rescuer who comes to secure the dog. In rare instances, though, it is the dogs themselves who find their way into the lives of their rescuers. This is possible, thanks to the combination of good fortune and the dog’s sheer resolve.
The dog named Moxie may have one of the most extraordinary rescue stories. She was rescued after relentlessly pursuing an automobile. The driver of that automobile was a woman named Martina, who later became Moxie’s owner.
Martina was apprehensive upon first meeting Moxie. This is because she lacked dog ownership experience. At the time she met Moxie, all of her pets were cats. She was uncertain as to whether a dog would get along with her rescued cats.
Fortunately, Moxie liked the kitties from the moment they first met. However, the cats did not share her excitement. When they began taking walks with her, only then did they begin to tolerate her.
Martina attempted to find anyone who could have lost Moxie. It was difficult to identify the dog’s owner due to the absence of a microchip. No one claimed to have lost Moxie after a week of asking around. Martina opted to keep the dog because she already had several animals living in her home and a dog would be a nice addition.
The woman has an extremely daring lifestyle. Moxie also enjoyed traveling and hiking. And whenever Moxie went for a walk, her enthusiasm is through the roof.
Since she began living around cats, Moxie’s personality has taken on a very feline quality. Martina feels that Moxie believes herself to be a cat. There came a time when Moxie was more eager to see cats than dogs.
Martina frequently pondered what would have transpired had she not stopped to pick up Moxie. She may not have appreciated the feeling of being able to save a life if she had not done so. Fortunately, she made the right decision, and Moxie is now living her best life.
