Wesley White was out kayaking off the coast of Belize when he noticed an animal near a fishing shack on a remote island. To his surprise he found a starving puppy. The dog was skin and bones but very friendly. He called out for people but no one was around. Wesley had no idea how the dog ended up on the deserted island, but he knew he had to save the pup.

But Wesley faced a challenge. He related to the Dodo that he only had 36 hours until he was to leave Belize. He wondered if he would be able to get the help he needed to save the puppy in time.

As soon as he arrived back at the hotel people pitched in to help, getting cans of dog food and the bartender called friends to find a vet. Wesley brought his rescue, now named Winston, to the mainland to visit the vet but he could only stay for a very short time.
