New Kind of Hero Who Finds Missing Dogs For Free
It is a new kind of hero who finds missing dogs for free. In a society where greed makes the world go around, you rarely get anything for free.
Good Samaritans do not come along very often. Occasionally, however, someone comes along who puts the needs of others ahead of their own. It is even more rare when they do not ask for anything in return. York, PA, is home to one such person.
Ryan Bulson doesn’t change into a super-hero costume, but he does have a day job as well as locating lost dogs. His position as a sales manager pays the bills, but finding lost dogs blesses his heart and soul.
Some who follow his donated dog locating efforts have called him a bounty hunter, but that is a bit misleading as he never accepts money for his efforts. If a thankful dog owner insists that Ryan accept payment, our hero suggests that they donate the money in his name to their favorite dog charity.
How A Super-Hero Came To Be
Ryan was a volunteer for a rescue group dedicated to helping German Shepard dogs. One of the rescued puppies that had been adopted was later found to be missing from his new family. They were devastated.
Ryan volunteered to help find the puppy and was successful in locating him. The feeling of satisfaction at locating the pup and the appreciation of the family when it was returned was thrilling.
Ryan enjoyed the gratification of finding and returning lost dogs to their families that he decided to learn more about tracking dogs. As he became even more passionate but retrieving lost dogs, Ryan realized that finding different dog breeds called for enhanced skills.
Our Hero In Training
The different breeds, with their varied personalities, meant that he needed to work with several trainers rather than just one. So, he did just that. The trainers introduced him to the breeds of dogs and how they differed in their personality traits. He also learned how they tended to behave when away from their families.
Ryan learned a great deal about dog behavior in general and that he needed to know more about the individual dog as well. By doing so, he was better able to determine where the dog might go when they ran off.
In preparation for an actual search, Ryan studied the dog and his behavior by viewing videos and photos of the dog. The time Ryan spent studying not only helped him to know where to start looking for the dog, but he also knew which methods would work best for catching him.
New Kind of Hero Who Finds Missing Dogs For Free Has Been Very Successful
Ryan has successfully located and returned more than 30 missing dogs. He refuses to accept money for providing this extremely valuable service. Our hero volunteers his services from his heart. Because he works during the day, his volunteer work is limited to nights and weekends.
What benefit does Ryan receive from all of his hard work? If you have ever lost a dog, then you would know the anguish and despair of such a loss.
If you ever had a lost dog returned, you would know how thankful you were to the person who returned him. Being able to take away the pain and to replace it with the joy of a dog returned, was all Ryan wanted.
Both the dogs and their owners are blessed by Ryan’s dedication to his calling to locate and return lost dogs. There are not many men willing to do what he does, and certainly not to do it without being paid.
I suspect that he will receive his reward from a higher power, whether now or in the hereafter. What do you think?
