Man Sees Strange Shadow In Road On Solo American Road Trip

The All-American road trip is somewhat of a rite of passage for young adults who are trying to discover what they're supposed to do with their life. The experience has been known to have a profound impact on which direction their path in life takes.
In fact, one young man's life was forever changed after he embarked on a solo road trip across the American southwest. Jordan Kahana was driving through Arizona towards the Grand Canyon when he noticed a black shadow heading right towards his car. He swerved out of the way and then pulled over.
When he got out for a closer look, he realized what it was. Jordan even exclaimed:
"You will not believe what I just found in the middle of the road!"
Get ready, here's his story...
When Jordan's employer closed down over the Christmas holiday season back in December, he decided to hit the road for a couple of weeks. Taking off from his home in Los Angeles, he planned to visit a few national parks before circling back home. First up was the Grand Canyon!
In "nowhere, Arizona" Jordan spotted a couple of black shadows haunting a lonely stretch of highway. When he realized what they were, he slammed on the brakes and ran after the little buggers.
Jordan couldn't believe that these chubby little dudes were just wandering around in the middle of nowhere! He gave chase, but the puppies decided to give him a run for his money by quickly sprinting away, just out of reach. Ah, those cheeky little pups!
Thankfully, the puppies realized that Jordan wasn't going to hurt them, and stopped by the side of the road. The excited fur babies even wagged their tails when Jordan picked them up and gave them much needed cuddles!
Although the 8-week-old pups obviously couldn't answer his questions, Jordan still talked to them as if they could tell him their fascinating story:
"What is your deal? Who are you guys?"
Although we'll never know why the dogs were abandoned in the middle of the desert, what we do know is that they could have been hit by a fast-moving car at any time.
These two cuties were lucky that Jordan rescued them right when he did! But, little did they know what was in store for them once they reached the next town.
These adorable black puppies certainly weren't starving, so one has to wonder how they ended up where they did. But, where they ended up next was the Page Animal Hospital, which was the next town on Jordan's route.
Jordan decided that this doggy duo was definitely going home with him! So, he took his new fur buddies to the vet, where they got lots of water, yummy treats, de-worming, and their first round of vaccines.
After getting a clean bill of health from the vet, Jordan learned that his sweet puppy pals were Border collie mixes.
In an ironic twist of fate, Jordan had recently ditched the idea of getting a husky doggy back in November. The universe was probably letting him know that the timing wasn't right - it was planning something much better for him, like these two rambunctious little furballs!
The Border collies, named Sedona and Zeus, are now an integral part of Jordan's human-doggy "wolf pack." Not only did Jordan save the puppies from an uncertain future in the scorching desert, but he also decided to adopt them into his newly formed "Adventure Squad."
This gorgeous looking crew, both man and beast, are now traveling through life at full throttle. They're experiencing amazing places, including many of America's beautiful national parks.
All three wolf pack members are also a fixture on Jordan's popular Instagram page. People just can't get enough of the puppies and their incredible rescue story!
Watch this video to see the actual rescue as it unfolds. Aww, they're so cute!
Road trip puppies! Need we say more? Not only is Jordan embarking on an adventure of a lifetime, but the universe gave him two new buddies to take along for the ride. Life can't get any better than that!
