A local shelter in Memphis, Tenessee received a call from concerned citizens telling them that a stray dog needed help. She was howling loudly and sadly and it seemed that she was depressed. Some people tried to give her food, but she was never tempted to eat any.
Animal control sent someone to help the dog at the parking lot of a retail warehouse club. Even with his experience and his equipment he was unable to catch her. He tried for several days, but the dog was just too fast and clever. He decided then that he needed help.
The animal control officer called a charity rescue group who agreed to help out. One of their rescuers came to the parking lot and tried to catch the dog too. When he failed, he decided to use a different tactic. Love and patience.
The next day, he went back to the parking lot armed with an armchair and some food. He even brought his own dog. His plan was to stay there and gain the trust of the abandoned pooch. He tried giving her some food and gently calling out to her.
On the third day, he noticed that the dog was warming up to him. He continued his plan, and on the ninth day, he was finally able to get her.
The rescue group brought the pup to a vet and they were surprised to hear that the dog was in excellent condition. It became apparent to them that someone took care of her but then decided to take off her collar and leave her in the parking lot.
They named the dog Samantha and put her up with a foster home. They tried looking for her owner, but no one made any claim. So their next move was to find her a new forever home.
Thankfully, it didn’t take long to find that family. Samantha now lives in a loving home where she would never be left alone anymore.
