Abandoned by his owner, the dog showed his gratitude to the person who saved him. The woman knew she could not leave the animal in need. She held out her hand to him and the camera recorded everything.
On Saint Patrick’s Day, St. Louis, Missouri was covered in fog and the air was humid. In the pouring rain, rescuers from local organization Stray Rescue spotted a homeless dog wandering the street alone. Guided by experience, they decided to do everything in their power to entice him to cross the road towards them.
A homeless dog was abandoned on the road
The dog crawled along the road with some caution. Even from a distance, you could see the scars that covered her entire head, and the way she moved revealed that she had been through a lot of bad things in her life and had probably been beaten.
Rescuers were quick to note that she certainly had many litters in her life, which is why the theory has been put forward that she was likely born from a pseudo-kennel. Their animals often end up on the streets when they are no longer able to conceive.
At first, the dog did not want to approach the rescuers because he did not yet know if he could trust them. Instead of forcing her to interact with them, one of the women left the vehicle, crouched down, and simply held out her hand to the frightened creature. As you can hear in the video of the intervention, she assured the dog in soothing voices that she wouldn’t hurt her.
The patience paid off, as the dog eventually crawled over to the woman to sniff her hand. Slowly, inch by inch, she moved closer until she allowed herself to be scratched and stroked on her head. The rescuers showed her as much love as possible with their hugs and also gave her food.
The most beautiful thank you
Even though the St. Louis is sated, activists weren’t going to leave this beloved creature out in the rain. Shortly after, when the dog trusted them, they put him on a leash and took him to the car.
During the ride, their new furry friend was so grateful for the rescue that he pressed his body against the driver in thanks. The woman who accompanied him took a commemorative photo to immortalize the moment when the dog laid her head on the shoulder of her savior.
You can see that the only thing this dog dreams of is a warm home with a family that won’t hurt him. He definitely deserved a second chance after what he went through under the previous owner’s roof.
