Dog Rescue Stories: Loki’s First Human Was Going to Abandon Him

By Jarissa Aquinde, Positively Woof Rescue and Adoption Story Editor

Loki’s forever parents, Kerri and Will, rescued him in January 2016, when he was about seven months old. He has been living with his little rescue family on Long Island, NY ever since.

Loki’s story is a bit different. His parents did not get him from a rescue, or shelter, but from his previous human. They do not know too much about his previous life, but they do know his name was “Max” and he lived in the boroughs of NYC.Kerri’s boss’ son, Louis, was working in “Max’s” home and after speaking with his owner, learned that he would be moving soon and would be leaving “Max” behind with a family member, who had a known criminal history. Fearing that “Max” would end up in a horrible environment, or a kill-shelter, Louis decided to bring him home to foster until he was able to find him the perfect forever home. Louis sent pictures of Max to his father to spread the word. One glance at the pictures, and Kerri was in love!Kerri made arrangements for Louis to bring him into work the next day, so she could meet “Max”. Upon his arrival, she realized she was head over heels! He was such a sweet little puppy, with such a personality, and so much love to give. He looked a little malnourished and overwhelmed, but it was evident that with a change of diet, a place to call home and a loving family, he would be able to flourish.Will had been wanting to rescue a puppy for a while, so it just seemed like fate that this blue-eyed baby walked into their lives. Kerri brought him home that same night. After a few nights living with his new parents, many destroyed toys, and even an “explosion” of his brand new bed, Kerri and Will decided the name “Max” really did not suit him. He became Loki, named after the Norse God of Mischief, which seemed to fit him much better.Loki has been living life to the fullest and causing mayhem ever since! Unfortunately, about a year after his parents brought him home, he became very ill. During the past five months, Loki has been receiving testing, medical attention, and hospitalizations for a waxing and waning high fever with multiple other symptoms. Eventually, this led to a diagnosis of an immune-mediated disease. Kerri and Will are hoping that with the proper medications, and his family who loves him, that Loki can continue to live his happy, mischievous life-and maybe, even one day, help them rescue another dog in need. For now he’s just enjoying his extra snuggles, treats, and toys!
