This Iraq Veteran Lost His Leg. He Has Found Friendship With A Dog Who Can Relate

Joshua Ferguson is a veteran of the military and he has been through more than the average soldier. The man lost one of his legs while serving a tour of duty in Iraq during the Gulf War. There are not many people who can relate to what he has gone through. That’s what makes his new friendship so noteworthy. Scooter is his new pal and they have quite the story to tell.

The Tennessee resident adopted the pup recently and Joshua says that the animal brings him nothing but joy. The Humane Society of Dickson County facilitated this connection. “It’s impossible to not smile around him,” says Joshua. Everyone loves to spend time with Scooter. Since Scooter is also missing a leg, the two share the sort of bond that cannot be found anywhere else.

However, Joshua wants the world to know that the dog should not be pitied for any reason. He’s a happy dog and he does not want anyone to feel sorry for him. This animal’s mentality should serve as an inspiration to everyone. There are always going to be problems that come up throughout the course of everyone’s lives. This dog serves a shining example of how to handle them.

When the dog was first found, the leg was freshly injured. No one seems to know exactly what happened to him. The vet’s office that cared for him believes that the dog must have gotten caught in some sort of trap. There was no evidence of any foul play. The leg was amputated and Scooter is no worse for the wear, all things considered.

Joshua is also grateful for everything that he still has. He lost his leg after a truck he was in drove over an explosive. This man knows just how lucky he is to be alive. There were four other soldiers in the truck with him at the time but they were all able to emerge from the accident with their lives intact. This is a blessing that is not lost on Joshua at all.

That’s what makes him and Scooter such a perfect duo. “There’s silver linings to anything,” the man says. This phrase might seem cliche to some but those who know better are well aware of how truthful it is. We do not have control over what happens to us (within reason) but we do have control over how we react to it. This is a lesson that Joshua and Scooter live out each and every day. 

These two enjoy their time together and they love to head out to the local park. Scooter and Joshua have even been known to head to yoga class. They share an incredible friendship and Joshua credits the dog for helping him to keep his spirits up. He struggles to keep his head held high at times and that’s where Scooter comes into play.

It is tough to have a long face around this pup. No matter what happens, they are able to take it one day at a time. Life is truly beautiful when we have a special friend to share it with. Luckily for Joshua, he’s got a great pal by his side who will never allow his spirit to dampen. Dogs are truly the best friend that a man can have and nothing can ever change that. 

Those who wish to learn more about the amazing connection that Joshua and Scooter share are urged to check out the video below. Hopefully, these two are able to enjoy lots more adventures. They deserve all of the best that life has to offer.
