Kirkland, Washington resident Paul Wu says he wants the child forced to give up a dog for adoption – the same child who attached a heartbreaking note to the dog before setting it free – to know that it is safe in a new home.
Wu found the stray while backing out of his driveway last week. When he got out of his car and approached it, he noticed something attached to the dog’s collar. Closer inspection led to the discovery of a bag attached to the dog’s collar. That bag contained money and a written, heartfelt plea.
“Please take care of Mr. B. He is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. Six years old. My parents got divorced and Mr. B was supposed to go to the pound. I think he has a better chance with you. This is my birthday money for any of his care. He is used to kids, not other dogs. He’s a good boy. I know God will take care of Mr. B – Everyone loves him…especially me. Thank you.”
Wu brought the stray to work with him, and coworker Robert Kuchcinski decided to give it a home. “I’d hate to be a kid making that choice,” said Robert Kuchcinski, who has three children of his own. “It didn’t seem right that it would go to the pound.”
Kuchcinski and Wu say they want the concerned child to know that the dog is safe and loved. “All I want to do is let this person know, that we found him a good home. That’s the whole message,” said Wu in an interview with KING5.
“Hopefully they’re happy with the dog having a good home,” says Kuchcinski, “And things are fine with them too.”
