Stray dogs can often stay in an area for years without getting rescued. This is what happened to a dog named Dixie, who lived in parking for three years. The indifferent people around her saw her as just another dog around the area. However, all that changed when one man stepped up and rescued her.
The man who put effort into rescuing Dixie was Danny. At first, the man thought it was going to be easy. The dog was receptive and ate the treats he offered. However, every time he tried approaching her, Dixie would run away.
Since Danny failed to put a leash on Dixie during the first day, he had to try again. In the next few days, the situation didn’t get any better. Dixie only avoided Danny more frequently.
Danny observed that if anyone gets too close to Dixie, she will run to a different location. The dog frequented a fenced area that had no entrance. It was her safe place, where no one could disturb her.
Danny also found out that there were other rescue organizations in the area. Those organizations were also trying to capture Dixie and had failed several times. After knowing this, Danny coordinated with them to make sure the little dog finally gets rescued.
The organization Danny worked with set up a trap near Dixie’s safe place. They also installed a camera inside the trap to check whether the dog would enter it. Fortunately, one day Dixie went inside the trap, and that was how she got rescued.
That event marked the end of Dixie’s life on the streets. After that, Danny immediately sent her to a foster home where a wonderful woman took care of her. The foster parent is in no rush to find a permanent home for Dixie, so she can enjoy her time with them as much as she likes.
