Hope For Paws rescuers Eldad Hagar and Loreta Frankonyte spotted a tiny poodle running towards the freeway.
They tried calling the dog to them hoping he wouldn’t run off the freeway, but their attempts didn’t work. The poodle ran through traffic and luckily had rescuers chasing him, so cars stopped for the dog.
Hagar asked Loreta to follow the dog while he ran back to get the car. A mile down the road, he caught up with Loreta, but the dog had suddenly disappeared. “I had a hunch that he had run to hide in the yard with the open gate,” Hagar wrote on YouTube.
Low and behold, that’s where the dog was- hiding under cars and they had to close the gate when he tried to run away again. Luckily, Loreta was standing by the gate and she had to grab the dog’s tail to stop him from escaping and running into oncoming traffic.
Finally, Hagar attached a leash around the dog, and it took him a few moments to realize they were there to help him. They named the dog Sailor, and Loreta apologized to him for grabbing his tail. Sailor calmed down after a little while, and it was time to head to the hospital.
His coat was so badly matted that the vet had to shave him completely. By the time he was finished, Sailor looked like a completely different dog, and Hope For Paws shared the great news: “After receiving medical care, Sailor had a foster home waiting for him.”
