“Beaker was scared and cowered behind the garage to hide,” Perkins explained to The Dodo. “As I began yelling for him, he peered out the side. His tail began to wag as I approached. Then he pushed his weight into us as though relieved that we were patting him. He’meeped’ like a muppet since he was so enthusiastic, therefore he was named Beaker!”
Beaker was obviously anxious after being tied up and abandoned, but as soon as he understood Perkins was there to rescue him, he immediately relaxed and was overjoyed to meet his new best buddy.
“When the chain from the garage was unfastened, he sank to the ground for belly rubs, licks, and playful pandemonium,” Perkins added.
Unfortunately, Beaker’s chain was trapped around his neck, so Perkins raced him to the vet to get him examined out. While they waited for Beaker’s operation to remove the chain, Perkins took advantage of the additional time to lavish Beaker with affection he’d never known, and the beautiful dog was overjoyed.
“We spent a lot of bonding time in the car for 5+ hours waiting for his procedure,” Perkins recalled. “After a time, he was asleep with his head in my lap.”
Even after everything Beaker had gone through, all he wanted was to be loved – and his dream had finally been granted.
Beaker is now recovering from surgery in his foster home and is the happiest dog anybody has ever met. It doesn’t seem to matter what happened to Beaker in the past. What counts is where he is today and all of his new friends who care for him and want him to be happy and secure.
“In his foster home, he’s learning how to be an inside dog with unconditional affection,” Perkins added.
Beaker is seeking for his forever home and would want to be with another lively, enthusiastic dog that can continue to teach him the ropes and become his best home. Beaker knew he was finally secure the moment he saw his rescuers, and he can’t wait to find the forever home he deserves.
