Rescue stories like this really tug at my heartstrings. I’m no cry baby, but when I see videos where a dog is abandoned and left to deal with a lot in a scary world, it does make my heart feel like it’s breaking.
The amazing team at Hope for Paws received a call about a homeless dog who was taking shelter at a local nursery. On reaching the site, they saw the scared dog taking refuge from under a parked vehicle. They tried to coax the terrified dog from there, but she refused to budge from her hidey-hole.
The team managed to get a hold of her slowly, after coaxing her with bits of food. They caught hold of her leg and didn’t let go. The poor thing tried to get away, but it looked like she needed medical care, so they didn’t let go.
After a while, when she calmed down, they managed to put a leash on her. She looked anxious about something, and then they noticed that she was lactating. After a frantic search of the nursery, they allowed the mama to lead them to where her baby lay.
On reaching the spot, they saw a newly born puppy curled up and mewling for his mama. The small family have been treated and given medical attention and are both doing well. Watch the video to see the amazing pre and post-rescue efforts. All that’s left now is to find the two of them their own forever home.
