Now and again, we encounter a rescue story that’s a little too out of the ordinary, even by rescue story standards. This adorable Pitbull, for example, was said to be lactating when Hope For Paws received the call about her whereabouts. But when they arrived in the area to check things out, they did see the Pitbull, but they did not see any sign of lactating. Regardless, there was an abandoned dog that needed their help so they set out what they’d intended to do.
Getting her to come to them was hardly a struggle. All it took were treats and the rescuers patiently calling out to her in that light, gentle voice that we use when we want to pacify our pets. When she got close enough to touch, they tried petting her after handing over a treat, and well, she was receptive. Since she was already this comfortable with them, one of the rescuers thought it was now okay to put a leash around her neck — a miscalculation that almost caused the dog run off without looking back.
Fortunately, they were quick to rally and resumed giving her treats until she settled down again. At one point, she became so relaxed that she decided to lay on her back so she can get some nice belly rubs! Not too long after that, they were finally able to put the leash on her, and she was more than eager to get into their vehicle. They named her Cinnamon.
Now, this is where the story started to get weird. As the were ushering Cinnamon to hop into the car, a woman approached them and said that Cinnamon used to be her dog. And that she gave it to a friend but now they had left and didn’t take the dog with them. She also said something about the dog being very playful, which she was obviously, and that she liked to ride in the front of the car, which she did.
Regardless, the rescuers found Cinnamon as a stray dog and they were determined to bring her back with them so that she can receive proper care. Thankfully, the woman did not object to this and the rescuers went on their merry way with Cinnamon. And she was more than happy to come along with them — as long as she sat in the front, that is.
Here’s to a long and happy life and a forever home for Cinnamon.
