He Was Living On The Streets For Months. When Rescuers Arrive, Watch How He Shows His AppreciationAshley Maisano
When dogs end up homeless on the streets and are strays for a long time, fending for themselves, they usually become shy and afraid of people. Many of the rescues we watch are not easy. Video after video you see dogs running away from rescuers, while they try to come up with clever and safe ways to catch them.
This rescue, however, went much differently. Brutus, a one-and-a-half-year-old pit bull, was living on the streets in downtown Los Angeles by himself for a few months. He had no food or water, except for what a group of mechanics working at a nearby auto repair shop gave him. They tried to care for him the best they could, but they knew he wouldn’t survive much longer on the streets. What Brutus needed was a real place to call home with people who love him.
Hope For Paws, a local rescue organization, was notified about Brutus and came to the scene to attempt to rescue him. They were prepared for the hardest of rescues, but what they didn’t realize was how badly Brutus actually wanted to be saved.
