Wade Newman is the kind of man who loves his dogs like family, as are most people that own dogs. As a truck driver, he often brings his two dogs, Snowflake and Sasha, on the road with him. His job does not provide him much time at home, and he does want to spend as much time with them as possible. Unfortunately, during one of his recent runs, he was involved in a terrible car accident that immediately caused his semi truck to catch fire. Sasha was, fortunately, able to escape the accident and fire perfectly fine – as was Wade Newman.
That’s when he realized that his precious Snowflake was still trapped inside the burning truck, and he did the unthinkable. Knowing that the fire could reach the fuel and cause an explosion, he climbed back into his burning rig and pulled his dog to safety. He immediately got the dog to the nearest Animal Hospital where the staff made sure that Snowflake’s injuries would heal nicely and allow the dog to live and long and wonderful life. This story touched so many people that the hospital was able to raise $20,000 to cover the dog’s medical bills in just a few days’ time.
