Offices found an underweight, abandoned pit bull puppy curled up in a plum box. They were able to bring him to the safety of a rescue, but the little pup refused to leave the plum box.
In a video by The Dodo, animal welfare workers describe how the little pit bull named Plum was sweet-hearted and friendly, but wouldn’t allow anyone to take him from the plum box he was found in.
The puppy seemed to find comfort and security in his box, maybe even a sense of belonging or home. They shared a photo of the little pup curled up in his box on his first day at the shelter on his official Instagram page, @plumpelstiltskin_.
Plum was taken in by the LifeLine Animal Project, where staff worked on gaining the little pup’s trust.
After some time, Plum began to trust the people helping him and gained a sense of comfort and security. He finally got out of his box and explored!
Speaking with The Dodo, an employee of LifeLine Animal Project said that he quickly bonded with the employees at the organization and they decided to start his Instagram page. After posting for just a month, they found a potential adopter!
There was only one problem, and that was that the adopter had another dog and Plum didn’t always do well with other dogs. However, after taking Plum to meet the other dog, it seemed like the perfect fit. That meant Plum had found his forever home!
They shared the news on Instagram, saying, “I’M ADOPTED! Thanks to all my friends who helped me along the way and stay tuned for updates from me in my wonderful new life!”
Plum continued to grow, put on some healthy weight, and began thriving with his forever family.
It’s so sweet to watch his transformation in the video below:
