Grandpa John was inconsolable when his English Springer Spaniel, Swift, passed away. His 21-year-old granddaughter, Jodie, knew she had to do something.
Swift died while John was with his wife Shirley in the hospital, where they were both suffering from a blood infection.
At first, many shelters refused to help because of her grandfather’s age. But then when Jodie found Fly, a 10-year-old rescue dog at the English Springer Spaniel Welfare, it was a match.
Fly was severely underweight after being neglected by his previous owner.
Now, John and Fly spend their days together. They love taking naps in bed, side-by-side.
