Man Refused to Leave Dog Behind During Hurricane Katrina


It made me appreciate life more so it taught a whole lot of people family how you’re supposed to lean on one another This is family, this is one of my sons it created pain because there was love once lost the personal things that could never be replaced he can’t be replaced that’s why we didn’t go anywhere what did they say to you? they said they couldn’t take animals and at that point my wife and I we both decided to stay and the animals that were left behind I made a promise to the people and the owners that the ones that was left, My family and I we stayed in a park garage for seven days
ninth floor the water itself was up to I would probably say in this area here there was an animal group that came and they said hey there’s this guy that won’t leave his dog behind well he needs some assistance it was that extended part of my family that they came to rescue I was ecstatic and a lot of people say “well damn he’s crazy” man he’s crazy! It’s not craziness, it’s called love I love him That’s my man the ones that did come, that were there for us thank you thank you very much I truly, truly appreciate it I do

  1. I'm in Denver Colorado and I remember a little boy that wasn't allowed to take his SMALL DOG with him, he was pretty little and the poor little boy was not able to take his dog. He had a meltdown and I thought one little boy and one little dog why couldn't they let him have his dog. Poor little boy IM TRAUMATIZED I COULD ONLY IMAGINE WHAT HE FELT LIKE 😧πŸ˜₯πŸ˜”

  13. Warm thanks and Congratulations to this gentleman. Such people are few and far between. We need more like him.

  14. Good for you, man! Yeah, I don't understand how someone could leave their animals behind…Hell, I got a harness and leash for my cat so I'd be able to hold on to him if disaster struck. πŸ™‚

  15. Good for you sir I know our pets are like our children sometimes we can't have human children so our pets become our children even though they're covered in fur and you have four legs. My cat Godiva she's like my daughter because I don't have any human children of my own she is my number one priority right next to my father.

  16. Mannn……..this MAN is what a real man's ALL about!!! I'm near tears……to hear a man and a black man talk Like this….makes me feel again!! I am looking n NO way being racist for some. Wish there were many more like you sir……GOD bless you & yours!!

  17. Some people need to understand that the bond between a person and their dog is as strong as the bond between a parent and a child.

  18. any decent person who owns a pet will understand…much love shame all people dont feel this way…oh can at least one off you thumbs down explain your reason.. umm thought not…

  19. Id have loads of respect and love for that man whom stayed with his dog rather than leaving his dog behind

  20. I completely understand, if I was told to leave my dog behind to die, I would stay and if she was going to die then I would die along with her, family is family …

  21. This man is the poster man for compassion, live and integrity. He is to be commended for not leaving his family behind. Lesser men would have.

  22. I love this guy! So many people didn't even care about their animals left them chained to die shouldn't have any animals to begin with if you're not going to treat them like family. This guy is wonderful and has a big heart to not leave part of his family behind. I'd never leave my dogs.

  23. What kind of person would refuse dogs or cats being taken with them? A heartless and cruel person. They should pass laws that allow people to take their family pets with them. Even if they have to be in a crates they should be allowed. Don't tell me to leave my fur baby behind!!

  24. I don’t blame him. How could someone ask you to leave them. I’ve seen people leave dogs chained up. God forbid something like this happens, I’m putting mine in backpacks and I’ll carry them that way. Or I’d tie them around my body with bed sheets, like people carry children. I’d lose my mind knowing I don’t have my babies.

  25. My babies are like my children. I love them and take care of them better than I do myself. They always come first before my needs. I even told my mom that they are her grandchildren, so feel free to spoil them πŸ˜‚

  26. To the REAL Man who would not leave his Dog behind, had His priorities right. I love the Love you demonstrate and the respect that you displayed towards your BEST FRIEND. I rejoice that you are A REAL MAN. GOD BLESS YOU AND THAT BEAUTIFUL DOG.

  27. Want to see the United States Congress do something about for our country? Just don't think it's voting. Your supporting change on a animal's well being under care by a person that that dog or cat doesn't know any better. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/laws-must-change-about-obtaining-cat-or-dog
