TJ the puppy had a rough start to his incredible life. He was snatched up by a hawk in California one day, but rather than turning into a quick meal, the hawk accidentally dropped the wiggly puppy into the backyard of a home in Los Banos.
7-year-old Taylor was out playing in his backyard when he found the puppy. He called out “puppy, puppy!” and his grandma rushed over to see what the commotion was about. The puppy had fallen an estimated 30 feet and was found with a few marks on his back from the hawk’s talons. It was a miracle that the puppy survived.
The family took the puppy to the vet and immediately adopted him as their own. They gave him a fitting name of TJ Heavenly. Taylor’s grandma said it perfectly: “My thought is that when God drops a puppy from the sky, you keep it!”
