A couple embarked on a 3-hour journey to rescue their late grandfather's Australian shepherd, who was about to get put down because of his worsening health condition.


In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and even otherwise, several animals face the risk of being abandoned by their owners. Quite often, people leave their pets alone because of financial problems or other unfortunate reasons.

Regardless, parting from their owners can be devastating for these furry friends. An Australian shepherd experienced the same heartbreak when his elderly master died due to COVID-19, leaving him alone and at the possible risk of being put down.

But things changed for the better when TikToker Ashton Hart learned about the tragic news. He hadn't met his grandpa in 6 years and wondered if he had any pets he had left behind. It was then that he found Oatmilk Latte. He told The Dodo:


“It wasn’t a question we would adopt him — my husband has wanted a dog for a while, and we had just started foster and were about to start volunteering at PAWS to try and find a new friend."

Hart shared that he had been associated with animal activism, and didn't want the sweet dog to be put down at any cost, so he and his husband immediately took him in.


However, Oatmilk Latte was in very bad shape. He was not only obese but also covered in dirt and had matted fur. The dog even had health complications, but Hart and his husband knew he was perfect for them. Talking to Bored Panda, Hart revealed:

“Oat Milk is a very sweet dog. When we took him to the groomer for the first time, they raved about how gentle and kind he was, and everyone who meets him falls in love with him."

Hart shared that to help Oatmilk Latte get back on his feet, he and his husband have even devised a fitness and dietary plan for him.


On top of that, the adorable dog was clearly in a bleak mood as he was still grieving the loss of his owner. But Hart and his husband refused to give up on him and decided to give him his time to process everything. He further explained:

“Losing someone is hard, especially for dogs. They depend on us for everything. My grandfather’s neglect to take care of the dog’s health aside, I assume he loved his animal in his own way.”

The TikTok user expressed his sheer love for Oatmilk Latte and said that while he and his husband didn't know what he looked like at first, they knew he was perfect for them the moment they set eyes on him.

As of now, the adorable furry companion needs incessant love, care, and attention to fully recover. We're elated that Oatmilk Latte was fortunate enough to find a new home and finally has a chance at a happy, peaceful life.
