Minnesota Man Goes Above And Beyond To Reunite Dog With Terminally Ill Owner

A man did the impossible in order to help reunite a dog with its owner.


When the dog’s owner who is a terminally ill person had to travel to Washington state, but could not board the plane with her dog Bailey, because of health issues associated with its breed, she had to drop him off at a vet.


That’s when Minnesota man, Ryan Chukuske, a volunteer at “Spots Last Stop Canine Rescue” offered to drive the dog to Washington to reunite with its owner.

Chuckuske said he believed in being good to people, and they will be good to you. “I didn’t hesitate. I just think it was one of those things where everyone deserves good things to happen to them regardless of where you’re at in life, and especially maybe at the end of your life. So if having your dog with you is what is really important to and for you, then I am going to make that happen,” he said.


Chuckuske paid out of pocket for the gas, car rental, hotel, and a flight home and his wife started a GoFundMe to help cover some of the costs.

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. — 1 John 4:11-12 (NIV)
