We’re ALL about people fostering homeless pets. Many times it works out and the person ends up keeping the pet forever, but unfortunately sometimes animals become too aggressive and dangerous to become permanent residents in the home.
The Toone family of Tucson, Arizona luckily found this out just in the nick of time. The dog they cared for became vicious and attacked mother Laura Toone while her three young children stood watch. Laura’s finger was nearly chopped off by the dog’s bite and her scared daughters didn’t know what to do. That’s when a miracle happened… Laura’s toddler son picked up her iPhone and used Facetime to call Mom’s friend. A small move that possibly saved Laura – and her family’s – lives. Some people believe young kids should not be exposed to technology, but this proves it can be a lifesaving tool as well. The saddest part is that the fostered dog was likely badly abused to have become so hostile to his new friends. Hopefully this young hero will show other families to be cautious when watching pets.
