When a kind man realized there was a dog at the rest stop in the middle of an expressway, he worried for the pup’s safety. He decided to help her right away but he barely got close to her. And so, he started befriending her by giving her food.
A few weeks quickly passed by and the man continued to feed the dog he soon called Doldol-ee. He felt sorry that someone would abandon such a gorgeous girl in a dangerous place. And while he wanted to keep an eye on her all the time, he couldn’t because he also had other things to do.
The man looked after Doldol-ee the best way he could. He made sure to pass by the rest stop as often as he could so he could give her food. Likewise, he took the time searching for an organization that could help until he made contact with a local rescue group.
The rescuers did not hesitate to help. But by the time they learned about Doldol-ee, so much time have passed and the dog have changed a lot. Her once tidy fur soon became covered with dirt, and she limped when she walked.
Doldol-ee wasn’t a stray, that’s for sure. There was no way she’d make it to the rest stop on her own. There was only one very logical explanation as to why she was there. Clearly, she was abandoned by her previous owner, whom she waited for but never showed up since the first day she appeared at the expressway.
Rescuing the dog without the appropriate preparation was too risky so the rescue team sought help from the people who worked at the Expressway Corporation. They set up a trap by the side of the freeway and waited for hours until the pup finally showed up and walked into the cage.
From the highway, Doldol-ee continued to the vet’s office for much-needed medical care. She underwent surgery and got her paw fixed. She took her time recovering and once she recuperated, the man who took care of her for the last 6 months came back and offered her a home.
Besides the new life she got, Doldol-ee got a new name, too. She’s now Bomi, which meant Spring in Korean because she and her dad first met during springtime.
