Matt found himself in a situation where he had to rescue a dog that was caught in a trap. He heard about the call for help and went to search for the dog. Eventually, he found her running on a deserted trail in Salt Flats. The dog was in a very poor condition, weak with hunger and almost hairless from scraping against rocks to seek refuge from dust storms.

When Matt drove her to the Utah Animal Adoption Center, he pleaded with them to take her. They quickly agreed. This poor dog needed extensive medical treatment. Quickly, a woman named Jamie heard about the “doggy warrior” and wanted to donate money to help the dog through the rough road ahead. Jamie also gave the sweet dog a name: Kelly.

Kelly was so friendly. Upon meeting Jamie for the first time, she came right up to Jamie, wagging her tail and wanting to be pet. The instant bond Jamie felt was evident! Despite the pain she must have been in and whatever past trauma she was working through, Kelly made the best of it and put forth a positive attitude for everyone’s sake.

Even with a fighting attitude, Kelly’s recovery seemed slow. It was Jamie who watched the most and he knew as soon as she was ready, he would adopt her.

Kelly’s first day at her house was awesome; she walked through the front door and it seemed like it always belonged to her. Jamie’s dog Rocky happily greeted Kelly and by the end of the day the two were inseparable. It seems that they’re also siblings too because in this video you can see that when they go to sleep; neither one likes sleeping without the other! And if that’s not enough for you then check out these extra anecdotes:

As time went on, Kelly’s recovery did too! In fifteen months, her fur grew back in completely and her health was excellent. Jamie is so grateful for what Matt did that she wants to reunite them. Of course Matt agreed!

Meeting Kelly after undergoing such intense surgery shocked Matt. To say she was transformed is an understatement! Jamie thanks Matt over and over for saving her life. Seeing this, Matt teeters on the verge of tears because he understands that Kelly wouldn’t have survived if it weren’t for him.
