This Hummingbird Refuses To Leave The Rescue Dog Who Helped Save Her Life
May 10, 2016
This is a heartwarming story about a man, his rescue dog, and his rescue bird.
Ed Gernon rescued an abandoned German Shepherd that was living on the streets. The dog, Gernon named "Rex", was vicious to other animals. After all, he had to use his hunting instincts to survive.
But after being shown constant love, Rex began to trust and his attitude completely changed.
One month after his adoption, Rex found a baby hummingbird covered in ants under a tree. It had fallen from its nest. Gernon was sure it was dead, but Rex refused to leave the bird behind.
Gernon ended up taking the bird inside, nursing it back to health, and teaching it how to fly.
It's been more than a year, but Hummer refuses to leave, insisting on staying close to the dog and human who never gave up on her.
"It's like living with Tinkerbell," Gernon told KCBS News. "It was this little creature. This fragile creature that the whole world wanted to kill and he was trying to protect her so I thought I'd go the distance."
