One dog that’s covered in filth and matted beyond belief won’t let anyone near her. When someone tries to approach, she runs away. She’s fast too! When someone finally followed her, the poor dog led him to another dog that looks just like her!
The man follows both dogs to a house filled with trash. It’s surrounded by dangerous things that could harm them. But then the man realizes why the two dogs hide. They’re protecting something sacred.
The man thinks that the dogs are on their own but then the strangest thing happens. A woman walks to the house and goes right in through the door. The dogs don’t even seem to mind.
The man is in awe. He goes and knocks on the door and asks if she’s the dogs’ caretaker. She doesn’t want to deal with him and gets angry. So he goes over to the neighbors and pleads for them to help. They try to talk to the angry woman.
She says she feeds them but that is all. She can’t care for them other than that because she can’t “catch them.” They also run from her. The neighbors beg to let the man help. They tell her they need to be bathed and groomed.
She finally gives in. A rescue group is called in and now it is time to get these dogs the help that they need. They come with a vet that volunteers his time. First, they catch the puppy. They say he’s too weak to run away. So sad!
Then they work on catching mom. She hides in the trash pile. They try to get to her but she’s spooked and takes off. She hides beneath a car.
With the net in hand, the animal rescuers approach. They have to push her out. It’s scary, sure, but she needs help! Once she’s in the crate, the vet walks over. He’s appalled by her condition. He says it’s been at least five years since she was bathed and groomed last. How terrible!
They rescue the daddy dog next. Once all the dogs are safe in the crates, it’s time to head to the medical center. The mama dog is okay but they have to get all the matted hair off of her. They can’t even imagine how she’s been nursing her baby like this!
They shave pounds and pounds of hair off of her. She’s going to feel so much better!
After both dogs are shaved, they give them clothes to wear to keep them warm. Losing all that hair is a shock to the system. They don’t want them to be cold.
Now that they’re all in good condition, they will be sent to a family who can care for them. The rescue group is going to do all they can to keep the doggy family together. That’s great news! We are thrilled that these dogs are now safe and clean. Here’s to a new happy life, doggy family!
