So I had to understand them.
And that's where I fell in love with dogs.
No matter the weather, we'd go out and walk the dogs. We walked them at 30ºC and at -30ºC (we're in Saint-Donat, Qc, Canada).
But one night, as we were bringing home the dogs, a pickup truck came full speed and ran over Max in front of my eyes...
I was horrified...
Max was convulsing, he was yapping, he seemed possessed.
The men said they were sorry but left us there.
Luckily for me, my grandfather's house was 200ft away. He helped me carry Max home and we went immediately to the vet hospital.
After waiting 2 painful hours, the vet came out and told us that Max would survive and had a broken pelvis.
Now, you can imagine how that stuck with me.
At that point, I felt like something needed to be done to keep more dogs safe.
When I finished university in 2018, I started Säker with that sole purpose.
