Not all rescue missions are straightforward, as Hope For Paws will inform you. When they received a call about Biggie, an abandoned pup trapped in the dried up LA River, they were joined by the Bill Foundation to rescue him.
There was no easy access into the river for miles, and they were hard pressed for equipment, so the community did what they could do provide them with some. One staff member of Hope For Paws went in alone using a tied-together broken ladder and sat patiently on the floor, waiting for Biggie to become used to his presence. The sight of a leash seemed to spook the poor fur ball, but eventually, he trusted the man enough to let him hold his eyes closed and clip the leash on.
The amazing thing about this pup is that once the staff gained his trust, he became friendly and playful. Even more incredibly, when they lifted the fur ball up using a cage that had to be rotated awkwardly to be pulled out, the pup remained calm and collected. That’s one brave, strong fur ball!
