Tiny Chihuahua Abandoned Next To Highway Trusted His Rescuers Immediately

31/3/2017

The animal rescue organization, Hope For Paws, in Los Angeles, received a call last month about a little dog who was spotted fending for ___self between the L.A. river and the railroad tracks. One of the volunteers, Lisa Arturo, spotted the pup in the bushes.

The puppy was in a dangerous, wide-open space and the team decided they had better sneak up on him so that he would not dash off into the road. However, the strangest thing happened - the pup did not move a muscle.

As he was caught in the net, he started wriggling about, but after about ten seconds of stress, he realized that he was safe and allowed his rescuers to pet him.

Diesel, as he was affectionately named, was taken back to the center on a leash and did not struggle when his rescuers picked him up.

The sweet dog, who is only a year old, received medical attention and was then taken to another shelter, Rescue from the Hart, who would try and help him find his forever home.

No-one knows where the puppy came from or how he ended up living alone on the highway, but Diesel is healthy and so ready to be adopted, thanks to the great rescue team at Hope for Paws and all the love and care at Rescue from the Hart.
