They tried to catch Clarabellefor five days without any luck. They had tried luring the dogwith food and a soft snare pole, but nothing was working. On the fifth day they stumbled upon her once again in a parking lot.Unfortunately, a nearby train horn scared her into running under a shipping container where the pupstayed hidden and refused to come out.
Clarabellewas clearly afraidand hid so far back that they couldn't get to her.Eldad Hagar, founder ofHope for Paws, looped the snare pole around her neck so that she couldn't move, but he refused to pull her out.
At some point she tried to make a run for it. I could've dragged her out and battled, but I wanted to build a relationship for her safety, my safety, and so it wouldn’t be a traumatic experience for her.
At one point, the dog was so clearly visibly terrified that she covered her eyes with her paws.
It was then that Eldad decided to crawl army style to meet the dog and comfort her. He slowly began petting Clarabelleand patiently waited to gain her trust.He eventually grabbed her front legs to pull her out little by little, being extra careful not to hurt her.Once she popped her head back outside, they gave her some time to adjust before placing a leash around her, and giving her her first real hug.
