Our 13 year old rottie, Nicki, had just crossed the Rainbow Bridge due to cancer and we were totally destroyed. On the way home from the vet, we saw this black lab mix pup in the desert and he looked very thin, but we could not get him to come to us. Later that evening he was running up and down the street in our rural area. Our son finally got him. He was in terrible condition. First thing on the agenda was an immediate vet visit.

We had originally planned to find him a home, but after he laid his head on my husband's lap, there was not going back. We later learned that some so-called person had gotten Storm to come into his yard. He had proceeded to starve and abuse him. He had obviously escaped and was running when we encountered him.

After having Storm for a couple of weeks, we noticed some strangers in front of our house looking into the back yard watching our dogs plaiying (under our supervision of course).. They indicated Storm was their dog. I confronted them, inquiring if the straving, beaten pup with the broken rib that we had found running in the desert was truly their dog. If so, we would be calling the police and charging them with animal cruelty. We made it very clear we had NO intention of giving up our little boy. No further conversation ensued; they walked away. Unfortunately, we never found out where they had lived.

Today Storm is a well behaved, loyal, muched loved boy that adores his rottie sister, Cyan. You never know what treasure will be be put in your path. Our treasures are named Storm and Cyan.
