Jessie Earhart had been saving up for a new car when a chance encounter with an abandoned dog changed her plans completely. The kindhearted girl, just 15-years-old, asked her mom to stop when she discovered a discarded dog running along a road. When the teen approached the severely injured pup, the dog now known as Lilly, immediately ran into the girl’s arms nuzzling her head into her arms in relief.
An animal control officer took Lilly away to a veterinarian for her facial injuries — believed to have been caused by someone who used an ax to strike her face. Lilly’s medical bills piled up and was scheduled for euthanasia. When the teen found out, she offered up the $400 she had been saving to buy a car to help pay the veterinary expenses and decided to adopt the dog herself.
The teen has no regrets and admits the right car will be there a year from now, but the dog’s life needed to be saved now. Wait until you see how happy Lilly is today — all thanks to one very incredible teen.
