Dogs have a great sense of understanding. They always behave in a gentle and polite way with their helping hand, owner, rescuer, etc. Meet Zoomie, a Rhodesian-mix stray puppy who needed someone to help her after her family abandoned her in the woods.

ACpR’s director, Kyya Grant, responded to his call with one of her staff members. She realized that the rescue wouldn’t be a quick one when they got there.

Grant said that the dog was very scared and barking so much and it was really hard to catch him. Instead of trying to catch the puppy, Grant decided to gain her trust. She put the crate away and started talking to the dog, reassuring her that everything was fine.

The puppy was still scared to let Grant get close, so Grant decided to try something different. “I left briefly, went back that night, put some food out, and talked to her some more,” Grant said.

The puppy was still alert but Grant could tell that she began to recognize her because she was hardly barking. Grant offered kibbles and the puppy slowly came out of her hiding place.
It took a few bites of food and then reached up to Grant and placed her head in her hand.

The next morning, the rescuer went back to the side of the road where the puppy had been seen. Puppy recognized her and showed excitement, told Grant. The puppy was clearly thrilled to see that someone had finally come back for her and she celebrated the moment by running around the road. “She got all bouncy and zoomie, that’s why we ended up calling her Zoomie, ” Grant said.

Grant was worried about bringing the dog home and she thought that the puppy might not get into the crate on her own. So, she decided to reach down and pick the dog up herself. Grant said, “she didn’t react at all, she let me pick her up, so I put her in the crate and came straight home.”
Grant took her to ACpR, where she received medical care and an official spot on the rescue’s list of adoptees.
However it took a little time, but with the help of shelter staff, Zommie started to become more comfortable with her surroundings.
