The 17-year-old girl found a malnourished donkey that would soon become her pet
Many people have come across a dog or a cat in distress or in obvious danger. Consequently, it is not uncommon for us to to take them with us or take them to a veterinary. Now think if, instead of the usual little kitten, you happen to find yourself in front of a baby donkey. This is what happened to 17-year-old Peyton Dankworth. Thanks to one of her friends, who first found the baby donkey, she was able to have a very rare and particular “domestic” animal as her special pet. This pet is actually a very young donkey, found by the girl’s friend while she was out riding her horse. The girl had then called Peyton, who immediately ran to see what it was all about.
The poor animal was evidently undernourished, and would not have lasted very long without the care it needed.
Thus, Peyton immediately activated herself to save him. She tried to do everything to nourish him and stimulate the baby donkey’s vital functions.
Despite the considerable efforts made by the 17-year-old, however, at first, the little donkey did not seem to respond to Peyton’s caring and loving administrations.
Without giving up, Peyton continued, and finally, Jack managed to start to eat again and regain the strength to walk.
After this very emotional rescue, the little donkey became in effect the girl’s beloved pet. Every day, as soon as possible, the 17-year-old plays with him and takes him and her dogs outside in nature for long walks.
Needless to say, Jack is now a true member of the family, just as a cat or dog would be.
The difference here is that he is a donkey, but in the end, this is only a detail, because the love he receives is just as great as it would be for any sweet and defenseless animal.
So much as to push Peyton to decide to dedicate her life to the care of animals in distress.
