Animal rescue group Hope For Paws received a call about an abandoned dog—but the circumstances surrounding him meant it would take time an effort to lure him in—it wasn’t going to be an easy job.
The dog was fearful and untrusting so the team had to secure a large area to give them space to work with the dog.
After fencing in an abandoned lot, a volunteer named Loretta slowly approached the dog, leading the encounter with offerings of food and water.
He accepted the food and water, calming down enough that Loretta could put her lucky leash around the dog—but when it came time to go, the dog completely resisted her, refusing to budge.
Thankfully, the woman who had contacted the rescue group about the dog was available and readily came to help.
She had seen the dog around and readily lent a hand to help the team transport the dog, who they named Odin, to safety.
