Just before Harvey hit Texas’s coast, Salvador Segovia left his grandson’s dog, Otis, in his home’s screened-in back porch, with food and water. But the storm must have scared Otis, so he busted open the door and ran away.
Tiele Dockens was on her way to check on the houses of some friends and families who had evacuated, when she saw a dog walking down a street carrying a big bag of dog food.
“It’s like he’s on a mission.” So she took a picture and shared it on her Facebook page. The photo quickly became viral, and the dog from Stinton is now an online celebrity.
Dockens followed the dog to make sure he wasn’t lost, she ended up outside Segovia’s house.
Wet and muggy, the brown German shepherd mix walked up to the front porch, set down the bag of food, and lay on the floor.
“He’s got a real sad-looking face and people just admire him whenever they see him,” Segovia said.—Washington Post
