Meghan Markle Stunned the World This Weekend – But Her Rescued Beagle, Guy, Was the Real Star

All eyes may have been on Meghan Markle’s dress this weekend, but the true star of the Royal Wedding was, in fact, a Beagle named Guy.

On the day before the nuptials of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Guy was seen traveling in a car with none other than the Queen. We are yet to see car sharing between everyone’s favorite monarch and her new granddaughter-in-law, but with Guy paving the way, we suspect such an event to be imminent.

Yes, that’s Queen Elizabeth sharing the back seat!
As with all celebrities, it is important to know a little about Guy’s history so we can appreciate just how far he’s come. Guy was found abandoned in the woods in Kentucky back in 2015 and was taken in by a shelter when no one came forward to claim him. Unfortunately, this meant Guy was due to be put down; his rescue from certain death was secured by Dolores Doherty of A Dog’s Dream Rescue, an Ontario-based charity that saves Beagles on the kill list in the U.S. and brings them to Canada for refuge.

Guy traveled 500 miles to an adoption event just outside of Toronto, where Meghan just so happened to be filming Suits. Meghan attended the adoption event and Guy’s happy ever after began; a true Hollywood blockbuster in the making, and we think you’ll agree!

Meghan Markle is known for being a feminist, humanitarian, and general champion of all that is good. As well as this, the new Duchess is an advocate for animal adoption over buying pets. It seems that rescued, adopted animals bring as much joy to Meghan as they do to the rest of us animal lovers!

Meghan and Guy are in good company with the Royal Family, and with Queen Elizabeth in particular. We recently saw her walk the gardens of Buckingham Palace with the United Kingdom’s unofficial grandfather, David Attenborough, and know that she has taken to banning plastic straws and bottles at the Palace after watching Attenborough’s Blue Planet series. But as well as an environmentalist, the Queen is also a renowned lover of Corgis, and no doubt she has bonded with Meghan over her natural affinity for pets. In Harry and Meghan’s first interview together following their engagement, he said, “For 33 years, [I’ve been] barked at, and this one walks in, and absolutely nothing, just wagging tails.”

We are sure you will join us in congratulating the newlyweds — and Guy the Beagle on his good luck in his new home! Image Source: Thomas Hetzler/Unsplash

Puppy Found With Missing Paws and Blunt Trauma Injuries in a Duffel Bag Refuses to Give Up on Her Happy Ending. The Arrow Fund is a nonprofit organization based in Louisville, Kentucky that funds medical treatment for abandoned and injured animals. They recently came across an abandoned puppy, and the little gal’s story will break your heart.

Named Freya by rescuers, the puppy was found in a duffel bag in the woods where she was left to die. Rescuers were shocked to see both of her front paws missing and a broken back leg caused by blunt force trauma.

Thanks to a welcoming foster family, Freya has been receiving extra TLC to help aid in her recovery and rehabilitation, which will include physical therapy and possibly prosthetics for her front paws as she grows.
At first, rescuers thought Freya was too young for the femoral head osteotomy (FHO) surgery needed to repair her back leg, but they reported she was in too much pain, so she received emergency surgery.
Here’s the little pup resting after surgery. 
Her sweet face and personality are winning over hearts left and right, with many people already inquiring about adopting her.
She may be tiny, but Freya’s will and determination are strong. Here she is just one day after surgery, looking light years better than when rescuers first found her.
The Arrow Fund is asking for donations to help Freya have the best chance at a full recovery. To make a donation, visit The Arrow Fund Facebook page here or their website here.

Take this touching story as a reminder of all the deserving abandoned animals who are in need of a loving, nurturing, forever home. If you are considering adding a new animal companion into your life, visit your local shelters and rescues’ adoption events to find your perfect match. Not ready to adopt? As in the case of Freya, foster parents are key to a successful recovery for abandoned animals. By fostering, not only are you providing an abandoned animal with a comfortable and safe home environment, but you are also helping ease the burden on overcrowded shelters and rescues and allowing them to have more space to rescue more lives.

And remember to share this with your network as a reminder of the importance of adoption! All Image Source: The Arrow Fund/Facebook
