Two adorable rescue puppies formed a unique bond after meeting at a Kentucky shelter over the weekend.

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) recently took in Travolta after he was found emaciated on the side of the road – much like the start of the heartbreaking story of rescue dog Ethan. In January 2021, the Kentucky Humane Society found Ethan abandoned in his parking lot in desperate need of help.

Over the weekend, Ethan — now healthy with a loving home — visited the shelter that rescued him and had a chance to befriend Travolta, WLKY reported Monday.

Last week, Travolta arrived at KHS after an Uber driver ran into his “lifeless body” on the side of the street, according to a Jan. 3 Facebook post from the shelter.

When the pooch was brought in, the organization described Travolta as being on the verge of death, ‘covered in urine and feces’ with ‘open and infected scabs all over his body’ and ‘a badly infected scrotum covered of maggots,” in addition to suffering from starvation.

This dog’s caregivers said Travolta was so badly neglected that he couldn’t even stand on his own.

KHS staff worked diligently to improve the little dog’s health, and he made incredible progress with their help. According to KHS, Travolta gained four pounds and was able to start walking independently, all within days.

Ethan’s visit added an extra boost to Travolta’s morale. During the filmed encounter, the two surviving dogs acted a bit shy at first, but quickly became comfortable and friendly with each other.

Ethan knows the difficult healing process that Travolta is currently going through. In January 2021, KHS found Ethan dumped in their parking lot.

Like Travolta, he too was emaciated and alone, too weak to lift his head and struggling to find the strength to walk.

But in the weeks following his discharge, Ethan, with the help of dedicated KHS staff, overcame many of his major health issues.

The pup found his “forever” family in KHS staff member Jeff Callaway, who welcomed Ethan into his home after overseeing his recovery at the shelter. Callaway helped Ethan gain a healthy 50 pounds and find the right treatment for his seizures.

Now Ethan is a household name to many dog ​​moms and dads – the animal has even been named the new tasting head of Busch Beer’s Dog Brew – and his Facebook page, where fans see the dog enjoying his second chance to a happy life, has an impressive 43,212 subscribers.
