The canine had been unapproachable by anyone trying to get near him, but the experts knew just what to do.They spotted him laying in a school yard. He was visibly on edge, looking up on high alert anytime someone walked by.Rescuers closed the gate to the yard and snuck up behind him with a gentle snare while he was laying down.Understandably terrified when he realized he'd been captured, the dog started desperately trying to free himself, crying out and yelping in panic.

He had finally started to calm down when the sound of breaking glass nearby frightened him again.Rescuers patiently waited for him to relax once more, and they started gently petting him. He seemed to have understood that they were here to help him.
