I think everyone can agree when I say that a mountain is a dangerous place. With its tall trees and wild bushes, also predators lurking around everywhere, it is most definitely not a place for a little dog.
In California, a family who lives in the mountain found a scared and matted black and white dog taking shelter in the deck of their home. The dog was skittish, and she immediately runs off when someone gets too near to her, but they knew she needed help. They provided her food and water right away and called an organization called Hope for Paws to further help the poor thing.
Eldad Hagar, from Hopes for Paws, came prepared to take the homeless dog. He blocked the opening of the deck with a gate and slowly approached the dog with a tasty treat in hand. When the dog took the food he carefully slipped a leash over her neck. Eldad then checked the dog for a microchip to trace her owner, but he didn’t find any. Since she doesn’t seem to be injured and just matted, Eldad took her to a local groomer and named her “Fergie”.
Fergie was brought to a foster home with The Forgotten Dog Foundation. She received medical care and was starting to ease into her a new home. The caretakers believe she is around 2 years old and a Poodle-mix.
Fergie was shy and it took her some time to get used to her new surroundings. It seems like the adorable dog didn’t have a chance yet to feel love and affection that she deserves. Eventually, though she was able to bond with the people around her.
As of today the sweet and adorable Fergie still stays in her foster home waiting for someone to adopt her. Waiting to have someone she can call a family.
