Nurse saves patient’s dog from shelter after forced to abandon pet


A nurse has gone viral after rescuing a patient’s pet.

The dog’s owner, John, was hospitalized, forcing him to seek alternative care for Boomer, which prompted him to go to a shelter.

However, kind-hearted nurse Jennifer Smith – who works at Adult Day Healthcare at Grand at Rome – took it upon herself to make sure John and Boomer didn’t get lost.

When she learned what had happened, she immediately went to the shelter and adopted John Boomer’s dog.

Since coming into his care, Boomer has visited John every day until he was ready to return home.

In the Facebook post, which has racked up more than 5,000 shares, said: “After John was hospitalized he was forced to donate his dog to the Rome Humane Society.

“When our RN Jennifer heard about it, she immediately went there and adopted John’s dog so she could bring him to visit while he completes his rehab!” That’s what #BeGrand means! “

We know our dogs have quirky personalities, but have you ever thought it could be due to the stars?

Just like us, our puppies also have their own astrological signs, and their traits and personalities can very well be affected.
