Give a Stray Dog Family a Safe Landing
Wednesday, 18 July 2012

A kind hearted traveler flew into Love Field on July 5th around 7:45pm and noticed a stray mother dog at a convenience store on Mockingbird and Lemmon. He pulled over and noticed her looking at everyone coming out the store and suspected she was hungry and thirsty. When he pulled into the store and tried to approach her, she didn't run away but casually walked in the other direction. He bought some dog food and water, placed it next the store, and she came back and ate it all. After that, he tried to approach her but, again, she casually walked away.


He contacted us for help. A great combination rescue team came together (as different people noticed this mom in need). She seems to be a very sweet dog who is just confused. Here is a tiny video of her eating from her rescuer's hand.


Last Saturday, the rescue squad confirmed that there are 3 puppies, one on one street hiding under a house and two on the next street over under a shed. They nabbed Sam and will try trapping mom and other pups later this week. He has a foster home through July 27th.


For their safety and health, we cannot take unvaccinated puppies into the shelter, so we are looking for Guardian Angels/foster homes so this little family can have a safe landing.
