Kayaking off the coast of Belize, Wesley White came across an animal at a fishing shack on a remote island. When he discovered a starved puppy, he was shocked.
Although the dog was barely alive, he was quite social. He shouted for assistance, but no one responded. Wesley was unsure of how the puppy had ended up on the remote island, but he was aware that it needed to be sаvеd.
Wesley, however, had a challenge. He told the Dodo that he had only 36 hours left before having to leave Belize. He questioned whether he would be able to get the help he needed in time to sаvе the dog.
Everyone came in to help when he returned to the hotel, getting cans of dog food and having the bartender call friends to get a vet. Winston, his rеscuе dog, could only stay on the mainland for a short time when Wesley brought him there to see the vet.
Wesley’s veterinarian, Dr. Mia, kept in touch with him and assured him that Wesley would recover but that he needed to find a foster home. He was fortunate to be able to set one up with the Belize Humane Society. Winston’s foster mother, Melanie, took him in and kept Wesley informed of his progress, showing him growing and getting stronger over the course of two months. Wesley was finally ready to board a flight to Dallas.
Winston and Wesley’s reconciliation was still a long way off, though. In the middle of January, Wesley had to go by car from Montana to Dallas. Wesley was concerned that Winston may recognize him.
