For a homeless animal, an impending storm can be a life or death situation. As the skies blackened, one puppy who had been on her own didn’t know where to go. She searched for a safe spot to ride out the storm but there wasn’t one. She darted back and forth, obviously afraid of what was to come.
An animal rescuer saw the pup by the main road but she wouldn’t stop running away. She had reason to fear humans… because not all humans are kind. The skies started to grumble and the rescuer was finally able to get a bit closer. The sweet dog stood at a distance and checked the man out. She was so tired of running.
With patience and persistence, the man reached his hand out and the puppy submissively came closer. She stayed low to the ground, tail wagging, but still apprehensive. She worked up the courage to let the kind man pet her. But it took all she had.
The sweet pup let her new human friend pick her up and bring her into his vehicle. She sat in the front seat and looked over at him as if to say thank you. She knew she was safe and warm just as the skies opened up and the storm hit. It was now time to take this sweet girl over to her new foster home!
She has her first real meal and couldn’t be happier. She ate happily and then curled up for a nap. Then it was time for a bath. EEEK! She was covered in fleas. It was hard to see them before. The little pup didn’t love the bath but she seemed to understand it was necessary.
Her new foster mom names the sweet dog Lucy. She wraps her up and keeps her nice and warm. It’s at that moment, Lucy seems to realize she is truly loved. Her foster mom notices, as her fur dries, that there is a wound on her neck. They see this when a dog has been chained up for too long. It’s likely Lucy was kept outside on a chain and then let go when her owner just didn’t care anymore.
Lucy is currently having the time of her life as she gets nice and healthy and waits for a permanent home. She has become best friends with another pup named Mini. She protects Mini from one of her foster mom’s cats that gets a bit too playful.
We are so happy Lucy is safe and sound and will never be on her own again! For info on Lucy and other dogs available for adoption, click here! Let’s share Lucy’s story so she finds her forever home.
