This is the brief story of a homeless stray dog who longed for a home. He had no place to live or family to love so he was cuddled up with a teddy bear in a trash shrewn lot waiting for what destiny would bring to him.
A dog rescuer named Kourtnee Blount was driving along in a neighborhood in Texas. On that day, she noticed the dog sitting between two properties looking sad and snuggling a teddy bear. She believes that he must have gotten the bear out of the trash. There was trash around the poor lonely dog. This really touched her heart and she felt sorry for the poor dog.

It was also surprising that the dog was in the lot alone in a residential neighborhood. She wondered if the dog belonged to anyone in the vicinity. She asked around in the neighborhood and discovered that he wasn’t owned by anyone. There were some residents that saw the dog roaming about in the neighborhood within the last month. Trying to find the poor dog a home, Blount posted photos of him cuddling his teddy bear on Facebook. Destiny Swatzel, saw the post and contacted Kourtnee with an offer of help for the lonely soul.
Later that day, Destiny, who is also a rescuer, made her way to the Texas neighborhood to get the dog. When she arrived to her dismay she found the dog lying in the middle of the road. She thought that he was dead and rushed over to assess the dogs condition.
However, as Destiny got closer, the poor dog lifted his head. She was more than relieved that he was still alive.
The poor dog probably wondered who she was and why she whistled at him but he came to her anyway. He even allowed Destiny to put a leash around his neck. He must have seen the care in her eyes and trusted her. Afterall, he was lonely and probably tired of sleeping in the street. He wanted a home and a family to love.
As the dog approached she noticed that the teddybear was wet and moldy. However, since it was the poor dogs source of comfort while he was homeless, she let him keep it. Its nothing that a good wash and dry can’t fix.
Destiny checked for signs of ownership such as a collar or microchip. She didn’t find anything.. Once she loaded him into the car, he threw up the evidence of hard life as a homeless dog in the street. He had been eating chicken bones, plastic and rocks just to survive. This broke Swatzel’s heart.
Destiny quickly took the poor dog and his beloved Teddy back to her home. She gave him a good nutritious meal and a flea bat. He also had an opportunity to get some exercise and socialise with the other rescued dogs.
On to A New Life
Some time later, Destiny took the dog to Mary St. Dizier’s home where he would wait for a loving home to adopt him. Mary St. Dizier was also a rescuer. Mary cried upon meeting the dog for the first time and fell in love with him. It was then that she knew that she would adopt him. Mary later renamed him “Blue”. In addition to receiving the much needed care, he has other dog and cat siblings in which he plays with on a regular basis. Among his favorite activities is getting belly rubs and socializing and playing at the dog park. Such a wonderful ending to a story that started tragically.
