Homeless man with puppy two months to live makes desperate plea for someone to adopt his beloved dog on a particularly chilly day. The man was discovered by a woman. When the woman started talking with a him, what she found out was heartbreaking.
His name is Clifford James Herbert. Once a farm worker and the owner of a mechanic’s shop, he lost his job in 2006 after becoming disabled due to complications from a heart surgery and tracheotomy. Soon he became homeless, and now he was dying of cancer with only few weeks to live. However, the man was mostly concerned about Baby, his loyal dog, and pleaded DShazer to find her a loving forever home.
Herbert says he rescued the doggie from an evil man who had been beating her with a flashlight. “She’s my whole world,” Herbert told the Fresno Bee. “She’s my best friend. She protects me.” Now the man is staying in a motel room, while Baby just got adopted and will even have a little girl for a friend.
