When Hope For Paws learned that a dog lived in an open yard, the rescue team immediately sent out Lisa Arturo and JoAnn Wiltz to save the animal. Busy roads surrounded the area, and people worried that the pup might suddenly run into traffic and get hit by a speeding car. He had a favorite spot where he always stayed, but still, it wasn’t a place for him to live.
When Lisa and JoAnn arrived at the scene, they spoke with a few people and immediately went out to search for the dog. A few minutes later, Lisa found him carefully watching them. Slowly, the rescuer walked toward the dog and worked on gaining his trust by offering him some chicken meat.
The pup starved, but he wasn’t sure what the ladies wanted. Despite the aroma of the chicken, he kept a safe distance. Lisa tried to lure him toward the rescue car, but the terrified dog kept running back to his spot.
Lisa and JoAnn soon realized they need to switch to plan B. They set up a humane trap and placed some chicken meat inside. They left and observed at a distance. Moments later, the huge brown dog was already inside the cage.
Lisa named the pup Falcon. Falcon panicked at first, but he calmed down within a few minutes. With the help of the security guards, the rescuers carried the cage into the rescue vehicle. And soon, the entire team is on their way back home.
Lisa scanned Falcon, but the dog didn’t have a microchip. The vets proceeded to examine him, and they declared the pup in perfect health. And so, Flacon continued to have his neuter surgery.
Once recovered, Falcon left and fostered with The Lovejoy Foundation. He stayed for a short while and made lots of new friends at the foundation. But soon, he said goodbye to his rescue family because his forever family finally came.
