Homeless dog was afraid to approach people, but she figured out how to save it

When Amanda and her friend Dylan learned the story of a lonely stray dog, who lives in the mountains near the town of Carbonado in Washington, they decided to help him.



The problem was only that the dog for a long time didn’t come close to people and Amanda spent an hour trying to coax him with food but it didn’t get them  very far.



They decided to go back into town to buy some food. Until 3am they were trying to get this poor pup into the truck but they had no luck. And then they got an interesting and a risky idea.


” I got out and went behind the truck, and then fetalized on the gravel road right by the pup with my back to him. He growled a little bit, but eventually got close enough to smell me. I laid in the road for about 20 minutes before he lost interest and wandered off.” – says Amanda.


In fact, it took me an hour to comecloser to the dog. If it began to feel uncomfortable, I just froze on the ground and did not move so it could get used to my presence.


When he started to growl, Amanda yawned and whined to calm him, because these sounds are considered to be apologetic for dogs. And it worked!


In some minutes, the dog layed side by side with the girl warming himself.


After he stopped to take Amanda as an enemy, they managed to put him into the car and took him to the vet.


Now they’re looking for good masters for the dog, but the first and the most important step in his new life has already been made. Fearless Amanda became for him a real rescuer.
