A car that has been unused for a while became the shelter for a little dog who has been abandoned by the family that used to own him. The car was very dirty and looks like it hasn’t been touched for quite a while.
It was a good thing that the little pooch was spotted by someone who had a good heart. This person contacted Hope For Paws and told them about the dog and his situation.
The dog had become quite scared of people. He would growl and he would bark at whoever tried to come near him or where he was living in. The rescue organization had to think of a way to get him out there.
Hope For Paws found the little dog hiding in between a narrow crevice between the wall and the car. They had to find a way to get to the dog. The car was parked quite near the wall and it also was too low that crawling would not be an option. The team decided to surround the area with a portable fence so that the little dog would not escape them.
They tried a lot of things to get a leash around the dog. Finally, they were able to make the dog look up and that was when he was able to fasten the leash to secure him. The dog did not react violently despite the growling and barking earlier. They made sure that the dog was used to having a leash around them and then they started to give him pets.
With the dog now seemingly okay with them, they then tried to pick him up so they can bring him to an animal hospital for a check-up. There, the dog got a trim because he had matted fur. He also had a warm bath which he needed a lot.
