Dexter, the puppy, was adopted in June 2015, and his family was overjoyed to have found the ideal companion for their household. Dexter was an enthusiastic and cheerful puppy who immediately gained the hearts of his family members who couldn’t picture life without him.
Despite his determination to live his best life, he nearly lost everything in an accident nine months after returning home. Dexter decided to run away from home one day, and his family and neighbors set out to find him. However, the puppy was too fast for them to catch him.
Tim, Dexter’s father, spotted him at a nearby park, but when he tried to approach him, Dexter bolted and crossed the road.
A truck was approaching at the time, making it hard for the driver of the vehicle to dodge the speeding dog. Tim’s only option was to provide first aid to Dexter, who was trapped beneath one of the front wheels.
Tim called his wife, Kentee Pasek, to inform her what had happened and that Dexter had wounded his front legs a little.
According to Kentee, who spoke to The Dodo,
“It was considerably worse than I had anticipated when I got on the scene.”
Dexter and his parents had to make a 45-minute journey to obtain veterinarian treatment since they live in the highlands. Tim and Kentee weren’t sure if Dexter would be able to make it through the lengthy travel, but his determination to live won out, and he arrived alive.
The veterinarian treated him right away, and owing to his expertise, he was able to execute the required surgeries to restore Dexter’s health.
Kentee had this to say:
“Dexter’s life was rescued by Dr. Franklin of the San Juan Veterinary Clinic. Dexter’s will to live is credited by the doctor.
Despite the fact that Dexter had survived the horrific tragedy, his recovery would be lengthy and he would require a great deal of devotion to fully heal.
Unfortunately, Dexter lost one of his front legs and was rendered immobile owing to multiple elbow injuries. For about a year, the dog had to wear a cone and relearn how to walk.
Despite the difficulties, Dexter remained the cheerful dog his family had always known and was determined to fight.
Kentee continued, ”
«He was cheerful, upbeat, and upbeat. On several occasions, his demeanor was contagious to all of us.
Dexter eventually learned to walk on three legs. Dexter, on the other hand, is a highly lively dog that enjoys exploring, therefore he discovered that he needed to walk quicker.
The dog, to everyone’s amazement, learnt to walk erect on its two hind legs, much like a person. It’s unclear how he achieved it, but Kentee was impressed with Dexter’s attitude one morning while sunbathing in the lawn.
According to Kantee:
“I went back to the house for a cup of coffee, and when I returned out, he was sitting on the front porch.” I was stunned, and I was irritated that he’d just had another operation.
The woman had no idea how she went up the stairs, but she was eager to learn, so she decided to film herself doing it.
Kantee brought Dexter outside and placed him on the patio, then began filming with her phone as the dog began to walk erect in front of her.
Kentee continued, ”
“I was both astonished and concerned that he had inflicted another injury on himself. For this stubborn hound, I recall feeling both wonder and dread.
He gradually refined his walking technique, and today he just walks upright like everyone else.
It’s not every day that you see a dog walk like a person, so he quickly became a local celebrity. People who know him adore him, and despite his celebrity, Dexter is still the same joyful dog he was before.
Dexter is not only well-known in his hometown; he has also become a social media celebrity as a result of his charming films, and many people all over the globe, believe it or not, may learn from Dexter’s example of self-improvement.
It’s unusual to see Dexter walking, but his desire to live life to the fullest prompted him to make this difficult decision, and he’s glad he did.
Dexter never gave up, and he’s grown into a wonderful example of how resilient dogs can be.
