Returning from a routine maintenance trip to the
Newport News Waterworks Upper York Pump Station, Efrain Rosado, instrument specialist, observed a white furry animal laying down precariously close to the railroad tracks on the route back to his work assignment. The animal was shivering, dirty, and scared. Being an animal lover, Mr. Rosado cautiously approached the animal and gained its trust.
Mr. Rosado was joined shortly by a concerned passerby, and together they decided to take this cute little abandoned dog to the Heritage Humane Society. Staff explained the process they would follow in the hopes the dog’s owner would reunite with the little guy.
Within the week Mr. Rosado received a call from the humane society advising that the dog would be put up for adoption and asked if he was interested in saving his life twice. After discussing with the family, Mr. Rosado answered the call with a resounding "YES!"
Christmas week,the Rosado family welcomed their new bundle of joy. Efrain said when this furry ball of love licked his face at the railroad tracks he was hooked. Thanks to the kindness of the Rosado family for their caring and love, “Lindo” (Spanish for Pretty Boy) has a home for the holidays.
