After They Rescued A Homeless Dog Off The Streets, She Led Them Straight To A Tiny SurpriseAshley Maisano
Many stray dogs are out on the streets of Los Angeles, left to fend for themselves. Many of them are in bad shape, and most aren’t spayed or neutered which results in even more strays on the streets.
Someone had called Hope For Paws, an animal rescue organization, to alert them about a homeless dog that they saw living in a nursery. Rescuer Lisa Arturo offered the dog some food, but she didn’t come forward for it.
The dog was sweet but was very scared, so she hid under a car. Despite her fears, she still wagged her tail. They were finally able to get their leash around her and named her Petunia.
Petunia was lactating, so they knew she had to have puppies somewhere. They walked with Petunia and she led them straight to her newborn puppy who was lying on the ground in the leaves. The puppy was only two days old, and they named her Petals.
They thought there might be more puppies, but Petunia just kept taking them right back to where Petals was found. After coming to the conclusion that Petals was the only puppy, they brought them to get checked at the vet and were placed into a foster home. At the foster house was another dog, named Olive, who helped Petunia raise her puppy.
Now they are looking for a forever home! To adopt Petunia and/or Petals, please visit Shelter Hope Pet Shop.
