When in Doubt, Pick up the phone

Last night my friend Susan called to ask me if I knew anything about a little brown dog that she had seen running on Eastside Road. She had seen it last night and the night before and was worried because it looked to be a dog who belonged in the house. 

After all, night-time temperatures are down near 20 degrees, so a tiny short haired dog doesn't belong outside.

I didn't know anything about the dog, so this morning she called Animal Rescue to see if a small brown dog had been reported missing - and it had!

She was able to connect with the owner and tell her where she'd seen the dog - who turned out to be a 10 month old pup. The pup had gotten frightened by a neighbor dog last Sunday and had run off. Since she's new to the neighborhood, she didn't know her way home, and by now the person was sure she'd have frozen to death or been eaten by coyotes.

But after talking to Susan she took her old dog and went out walking where the pup had been seen... and now all are safely home.

I love sharing a good news story. And this one just goes to show... If you see a dog in the neighborhood who is unfamiliar or looks like it doesn't "belong," it's worth taking the time to call the local rescue to see if someone is searching for it.

Susan will be walking on air all day today because she was able to put puppy and human back together... and I expect the pup and her owner are pretty happy as well.

dogs are always worth the effort

Charita - I do too, which is why I had to share it.  One of my best moments when I worked in rescue was when we had an elderly German Shorthair and the owner came looking, hoping we had her. He had left her in a friend's care while he took his Grandma to a cancer center... and came home to find the friend had let her get lost and hadn't even looked for her. The joy on both their faces was indescribeable.

Karen - Yes, when they happen they really make your day - or your week.

Connie - or any other time!

Hello Marte - heart warming story to share with us.  I have friends that work in rescue and they seem to share the same feelings that you do and also have lots of great feel good stories.

Barbara - There are days when rescue work breaks your heart - and other days when it mends it.
