Meet Zoomie, a homeless Rhodesian puppy in need of help after being abandoned in the woods by his family.
She was delegated to take care of herself at the age of 4 months. She took shelter under an olive grove along the road as well as a nearby stream to avoid dehydration.
In the hope that the man would be interested and help her, she waited there for more than a week.
One day a complete stranger noticed a puppy huddled along the road and also started bringing her a burrito every time he passed by. He quickly called Adams Region Pet Rescue (ACpR) to let them know the young pet needed help.
Kaya Grant, director of ACpR, and one of her staff answered the call. As soon as she got here, she realized that the rescue would take some time.
Dai informed Dodo, “She was so worried and barked so much”. “Dogs are very elusive in this situation.”
Grant made the choice to gradually gain the young puppy’s trust instead of trying to cage the frightened pet. She set the container aside and started talking to the pet too, letting her know that everything was fine.
The dedicated rescuer decided to try a different technique due to the fact that the pup was still too scared to let Grant get close.
Grant recalled, “I went out for a bit, came back that evening, put some food down and talked to her more”.
Despite the fact that the pet still hesitated, Give could see that she was familiar to him, since she hardly barked. The puppy rose from hiding after Grant threw a pile of food on the ground.
Before getting up and resting his head on his rescuer’s hand, the pet took some food.
Dai returned to the roadside, where he had seen the puppy out early in the morning. She was stunned to find that the young pup not only knew that he had actually saved her, but was glad to see her.
She was delighted, Grant remarked.
The puppy ran in circles on the road to demonstrate how happy she was to see that the man had finally come back for her.
Give stated, “She got all the jumpers and zoomie”. That’s why we decided to call her Zoomie.
Grant was worried that Zoomie might not fit into the package on her own when it came time to take her home. Therefore, she decided to pick up her beloved dog herself, bending down.
Dai said, “She didn’t react at all. I put the dog in the kennel and drove straight home after she agreed to let me pick her up”.
When Grant brought Zoomie to the ACpR, the puppy was given medical attention and placed on the main adoptable rescue watch list.
It took Zoomie a while to open up, but with the help of the shelter staff, who also picked her up with a quiet house friend to calm her down, she gradually began to feel even more at ease in her surroundings.
Soon after, the couple went to an orphanage and immediately fell in love with Zoomie. They applied for adoption as quickly as possible, and Zoomie soon had her own household.
Grant claims that Zoomie loves her new life. When she’s not playing with her buddies in the dog garden, she regularly sleeps with her new sibling.
While the team is missing Zoomie, they will always have great memories of the adorable puppy and her touching rescue.
Give said, “She’s definitely the cutest”.
