One dog’s life can easily be changed with a simple act of kindness. Like what this woman did when she saw a young dog near her house. The pooch desperately needed help. So she would give the poor pup some water and food. And while doing so, she searched for different rescue organizations in her area. She needed someone that can help the dog permanently.
The lady was finally able to get in touch with Hope for Paws. When the rescuers arrived in the caller’s area, they tried searching the bushes near her house. The area in which the puppy frequently stayed. The bowls for water and food were there, but the pooch was nowhere to be found.
A clearer future
The rescuers further searched the vicinity. They found the dog on the porch of the woman who was feeding her. Apparently, because the lady was bringing out sustenance, the dog placed some trust in her. They informed the woman that the dog was on her porch, crouching under a table. And she was surprised by this.
They gave morsels of food to the dog so that they could get its trust and eventually go with them. Most of the time, it takes a lot of patience and gentle coaxing to get a stray dog to trust its rescuers.
When they were able to get a leash on the dog, they knew that the pooch was beginning to trust them. Slowly, they tried and were able to carry the dog without it being scared. They were now able to get it into the car, and then they drove straight to the vet. There they discovered that the dog was going blind in one eye and had a massive flea infestation.
They named the dog Phannie in honor of one of the rescuer’s previous pets. After cleaning up Phannie, they scheduled surgery for her. Thankfully, the operation was successful. Phannie had her eyesight restored, and she is living a happy life in the shelter. Now, she is just waiting for a new family to adopt her.
