Vanessa Rosales contacted Hope for Paws after a scared dog kept running away anytime anyone approached her.
She described that the dog would always run into an enclosed property, making it nearly impossible for anyone to save her.
Lisa Chiarelli from Hope for Paws immediately made her way over, and when she arrived, construction workers allowed her onto the property. To her surprise, laying there in an overturned garbage can was the dog and also a puppy!
Vanessa told Lisa it was possible the dog had puppies recently, but she couldn’t confirm it because she had never seen them. While it’s usually unlikely for a dog to have just one puppy, volunteers asked construction workers where the other puppies were and they said that 4 days ago, kids had stolen the other 5 puppies. They ask the men where they could find the kids, but they had no idea.
Knowing there was not much more they can do, rescuers focusing their attention on gaining the dogs’ trust.
They fed the dogs hamburgers and eventually tried to lure them out of the overturned garbage bin they were living in, which was surrounded by filthy beer bottles.
The mother was initially hesitant, but once she realized that her and her baby weren’t in any danger, she relaxed.
After sitting with the dogs for 30 minutes, they were ready to be taken to get medical treatment.
Hope for Paws named the mother Zoe, and her baby, Meadow, and they currently reside at a Hope for Paws rescue facility.
