It doesn’t matter where a stray dog is hiding because rescuers will find a way to get to it. Scared dogs often hide in tight corners to avoid humans, but they’re never unreachable.
This is an example of the patience and dedication rescuers have when rescuing dogs that insist on hiding.
One day, rescuers from Hope For Paws, an animal rescuer organization, received an urgent call. A beagle was reported to be living behind a building for more than two weeks. The rescuers, who are experienced with such cases, knew what to do.
The dog was in a tight corner with only one way of escape. The rescuers immediately blocked it with a barricade. Meanwhile, one of the rescuers brought out some snacks to entice the dog to come out. Even with food, the dog was hesitant to get out of his corner.
The rescuers brought out a gentle snare to make the mission easier. It worked as expected, but it also surprised the dog, sending him into a short panic. The rescuers knew when to loosen their grip on the snare to calm the dog down. Eventually, they manage to get the dog out without triggering him further.
The dog was still shaking when the rescuers picked him up, but he never protested when transported. The rescuers gave him the name Rufus and provided him with everything he needed while under their care. After two weeks, he looked much better than he did before.
It didn’t take long for Rufus to find him forever home. He was adopted by a person named Dawn Spence, who gave him the security that he needed. Nowadays, instead of living behind a building, he lives inside one.
Rufus is an example of a scared dog who does not know what to do or where to go. The people at Hope For Paws gave him a path to take. Of course, it wouldn’t have been possible if not for the people who reported his case in the first place.
