I love stories about dogs being rescued. It always gives me hope for the human.
Have you ever been in a park or a field and see a dog all alone running around? When you do, do you ever wonder, “does that dog have a home”?. I often do and after I saw this story I will wonder that more often. It is a story about how a German Shepherd and a Pitbull were found to be homeless in the woods of Fort Worth, Texas. When rescuers first encountered the dogs, they were both very scared and defensive. But with a loving approach and soothing voice, the rescuers were able to save the dogs.
According to residents who lived nearby the woods, the two dogs had been living in the woods for possibly months, relying on each other to survive. No one knows where the dogs were from or how they made their way into the woods. After hearing this story I wondered why the people who lived nearby didn’t do anything to help the dogs. Was this a regular occurrence where they lived? But fortunately, there are organizations who come to the rescue of dogs.
Judy Obregon, the rescuer, and founder of The Abandoned Ones (TAO) came out to help the dogs.
She said that the German Shepard was the first to come out of hiding. She decided to name her, Iris. The Pitbull, who they named Clover, followed Iris’ lead and came out soon after. You can see below how cautious Iris was when she was still in the woods. Thankfully the rescuers were able to find a good home for Iris and Clover. They are thriving and have grown stronger each day. Iris’ three favorite things to do is take baths, get massages, and play with children. While Clover is more active – all he wants to do is have play time with other dogs and children.
I hope you enjoy this story as much as I do. Feel free to Comment, Like or Share below.
