Andrea Athie was traveling down a deserted road when she came across a wounded “homeless dog” screaming for assistance.
Andrea pulled over to save the frail dog, but when she saw that the poor creature had a broken leg, she was heartbroken. Andrea realized the dog might have been run over and rushed him to the nearest veterinary clinic for help.

As they made their way to the clinic, the grateful “dog” cuddled up to his rescuer and lavished her with kisses. When Andrea arrived at the clinic, she was shocked to discover that the puppy wasn’t even a dog! Andrea learned from the vet that the timid, obedient baby was really a wild coyote!
