An Iceland Home Delivery driver in Scotland was doing his usual route when a note attached to a fence caught his attention. The residence was that of a man he had delivered to in his six years of service. The delivery driver, David Macleod, was heartbroken when he read what was written on the note.
The note read that the man in the residence needed help finding a small dog for a companion. He was willing to pay £30. He had just lost his Jack Russell to cancer, and he was not feeling well. It was clear that the man was devastated at the loss of his loyal companion.
Losing a dog is never easy. We treat dogs more like our best friends and as part of our families, and a hole is often left in our hearts when they suddenly depart. And Macleod knew all too well what the poor man was going through.
Macleod was determined to help the depressed man in any way he can. He posted the note on Facebook and asked for assistance. He reached out via Facebook to find ideas and see if someone who had puppies was willing to help out. Macleod even offered to help out with the cost!
Macleod said he has been delivering for the man for the past six years, and he is such a nice person. He often saw the man’s Jack Russell running around in his yard during his deliveries. Macleod said that he would make the year a little better for the man if he can.
Luckily for Macleod, he finally found someone who might be able to help out. After having contacted the Give A Dog A Bone charity, they realized that they might have a dog that is suitable as the man’s companion. After finally having found what the man needed, Macleod plans on leaving it to the charity to find the best dog companion for the man.
Macleod looks forward to being able to see a dog run around in the man’s yard again.
