"Have you ever thought about what happens when a dogs owners abandon them?" "She. Watches." She can't wait to be reunited with her family.
This week folks, in Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania noticed a dog resembling a collie roaming around a local park. She looked cold and alone. She wouldn't let anyone come near her.
Worried community members reached out to Janine Guido, the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue, a known organization dedicated to rescuing animals.
"She stayed in the spot almost as if she was waiting for her family to come back ". Unfortunately they never did despite Guidos efforts. Guido relied on the help of the community to locate and save the dog. People reported sightings to her so that Guido could track down the lost pup.
However it wasn't a task.
"On my second visits I managed to feed her by hand " said Guido. ". Whenever I tried putting a leash on her she would back away."
Guido came so close, to gaining Carlas trust for the frightened dog to run off into the woods.
In the meantime Speranzas Facebook page played a role, in spreading the word so that people could help locate the dog. "Have you ever wondered about the fate of a dog abandoned by its owners?" Speranza Animal Rescue shared this news on Facebook highlighting how she patiently waits for her family to come back.
"The park was quite crowded " Guido mentioned. "She kept getting startled by all the people around her." Eventually she managed to escape from the woods with others following her.
Despite two days of searching there was no sign of her on Wednesday causing concern among many.
However Thursday morning brought some news when we received a call saying that Carla had been found sleeping under a porch at the back. Guidos adventure had already begun.
"I almost caught her once but she got scared again " Guido explained.
Carla ran away.
A hours later Guido started streaming on Speranza Animal Rescues Facebook page leaving everyone curious about what would happen next.
As the camera faced out from the drivers side of the car and captured their journey down the road Guido narrated his experiences. Expressed his horror, over what had transpired in hours.
Guido received another phone call a hours later informing him that Carla had been spotted again. In a video Guido excitedly exclaimed "We found her! Your new life begins now. We appreciate you. Will keep you safe."
Speaking to The Dodo Guido shared how he gained the trust of this timid pup. "I managed to coax her onto a porch " he said. "She couldn't escape because the two other ladies had blocked both doorways." "I secured her with a leash and from that moment, on everything changed."
Guido discovered that Carla was 10 years old didn't have a microchip and was severely underweight by 15 to 20 pounds when he brought her to the clinic.
"We don't know who she belongs to " Guido explained. "There haven't been any missing persons reports. Unfortunately we suspect someone abandoned her which explains why she was living in that area."
Carla was exhausted after spending days outdoors. According to Guido "She could barely keep her eyes open."
Guido promptly arranged for Carla to stay in an peaceful home ensuring her safety and allowing her to recuperate. Carla arrived on Thursday evening.
Once she has fully recovered we will make Carla available, for adoption.
Guido expressed, "Carla is such a soul although she appears frightened. However soon as I got her into my car she seemed to sense that she was, in an environment."
