Chihuahua abandoned. An animal rescuer rescues a tiny pup.
Domestic dogs are dependent on humans to survive. If left alone they either become scared or aggressive. Things like these always happen because of the need to protect themselves.
An animal rescuer received reports about a chihuahua, later named Maggie roaming around the highway. Maggie’s owner abandoned her by dropping her off on the side of the road and drove away. Fearing for the dog’s life, the rescuer drove to the area as fast as he could.
The rescuer witnessed how terrified Maggie was when he arrived at the scene. She just kept on running away from him whenever he approaches her. After a couple of minutes, he successfully caught her.
But as soon as the rescuer tried to pick Maggie up, she bit him. The rescuer was taken aback by the sudden move, but it didn’t budge him. He’s used to this kind of ordeal, so he stayed and saved the tiny pup from the scorching sun.
When successfully captured, the rescuer then brought her to the vehicle and gave her food. The poor baby ate hastily as if she never had anything for days.
The rescuer then brought Maggie over to SPCA to ask for help. However, they refused since they don’t accept aggressive dogs. So, the kind man brought her to his home.
He took care of Maggie as if she’s of his own. Sure, it took him time to win her heart, but soon enough, she became the sweetest pup!
Maggie still has a long way to go. She’s finally at a foster home, learning the ways of life and getting over the trauma she went through. Once she’s ready, she’ll be on the adoption list.
This tiny pup’s story should be an eye-opener to everyone. Please know that dogs only become aggressive because of the stress and the need to protect themselves. The most important part of them all, they can also be tamed by gaining their trust.
