A mother dog and her puppy who were found living in a trash can are now safe thanks to Hope for Paws.
Vanessa Rosales phoned Hope for Paws and reported a homeless dog living in her area.
Apparently, the owner of the mother dog sold her house and left the poor dog behind.
While living on the streets the poor dog became pregnant.
When Eldad Hagar and Lisa Chiarelli arrived, they found the mother dog and her puppy inside a trash can. Somebody had taken the time turn the trash can into a temporary shelter for the dogs. They had propped the trash can’s cover up with a stick.
Construction workers told Eldad that kids had stolen the rest of the puppies, leaving the mother dog with only one.
Lisa offered the hungry mother dog and her puppy food. Mom was understandably protective of her puppy and growled at Lisa when she came nearer.
But after spending a few minutes with the dogs, Lisa and Eldad gained the mother dog’s trust and were able to put the Lucky Leash around her neck.
The protective mother turned out to be a very gentle and sweet dog!
After a few pets and scratches,Mama dog finally accepted the love her rescuers were offering. Soon she and her puppy are on the way to a better life. The terrible days as homeless, scared dogs were finally over.
When they arrived at their foster home, Lisa named the mother dog Zoe and the beautiful puppy Meadow.
Zoe is now at ease knowing she and her little one are in safe hands.
Little Meadow is a joyful, happy puppy. With amazing puppy spirit and resilience she has overcome her bad start in life. Watch as she happily invites mom to play and playfully chews on her tag.
