A heartfelt moment unfolded when Amanda and Nicole Lightle were on a road trip from Mississippi to Illinois. While driving, they spotted a dog wandering all alone in the middle of the road. Instantly, they both knew that they couldn’t just leave the poor pup behind. Amanda shared how she asked her sister if they should turn around, and without any hesitation, Nicole agreed. As they pulled up beside the dog, they saw it hiding in the tall grass on the side of the highway. The sisters decided to help the dog, and Amanda picked her up effortlessly and carried her to their car.
When Nicole stepped out of the vehicle, the dog, Honey, immediately backed away from her. Although afraid, Honey also seemed curious and interested in following the women. In an attempt to lure her closer, Amanda grabbed a bag of pretzels and offered them to the timid pup. After some hesitation, Honey eventually approached and took the treat, allowing Amanda to pet her. Despite her trembling, the dog welcomed the affection and even allowed herself to be picked up and carried to the car with the help of a beach towel. From the start, Honey proved to be a gentle and endearing creature.
Amanda Lightle The Lightle family had quite a journey ahead of them, and they weren’t alone anymore. They had been joined by a furry companion, a dog that they found along the way. The poor thing was in dire need of some cleaning up, so they took a quick pit stop at a nearby park. It was a bit of a random location, but it did the job. The dog was covered in dirt and grime, and it was evident that she had been fending for herself for quite some time. There was no identification on her whatsoever, which made the Lightles question where she came from and how she ended up there. As the family continued their long drive home, the dog, who they named Honey, slept soundly in the back seat. Little did she know that her whole life was about to change for the better. She was headed to her new forever home, and she was going to be loved and cared for like she never had before.
After completing an 11-hour road trip, Amanda Lightle and her family finally arrived in Illinois where they immediately started settling Honey into her new home. They gave her a thorough bath to get rid of any ticks she may have been carrying and although Honey was still nervous, she appeared to be trusting her new family. After being on her own for so long, Honey was finally in safe hands. Now, Honey is slowly adapting to her new life with the family and they are overjoyed to have her as a new addition. According to Lightle, Honey is doing great and has started venturing out of her bed and into the living room to spend time with the family while they watch TV. Honey has even been following Lightle from room to room. The family’s uneventful road trip ended with the arrival of their new furry family member, and if you’re interested, you can keep up with Honey on TikTok.
