When rescuers first found out about an abandoned pit bull living next to a busy freeway, they knew they had to act fast. Each day that passed was another where the pit bull’s life was in danger. Finally, rescuers were successful in rescuing him it was in the most amazing way.
One day, Hope for Paws, a rescue organization based in Los Angeles, received a serious phone call about an abandoned dog. Unlike many of the other phone calls they have received, this dog was in a dire situation….
19. Dire Situation
So what kind of bad situation was this pup in? Apparently, a pit bull had been living extremely close to a freeway in Los Angeles. The caller that phoned in the situation was worried that the pit bull would wind up getting hurt…or worse.
The pit bull was visibly scared and so Hope for Paws decided to intervene immediately. So Hope for Paws dispatched a few volunteers to head out to the area, however, the situation wasn’t as easy to remedy as they hoped.
Michele Claseri and a few others headed out to find the dog. They eventually found him hiding behind a bush and attempted to approach him. However, he was absolutely terrified of people.
16. Running Away
The pit bull continued to run away and avoid the rescuers for weeks. While this was occurring, the rescuers decided to give the pit bull a name. They named him Veyron.
Rescuers began to grow more and more worried. They were especially worried that if they scared off Veyron too much then they would scare him off into the road. This was something they worked hard to avoid.
Finally, after so many failed attempts, the rescue group decided to try something a bit more drastic. Eldad, the founder, and a few more volunteers decided that their best bet would be to corner the pit bull. However, they had to proceed with caution.
13. Dangerous Situation
It was a pretty dangerous situation that the rescuers found themselves in but they knew it was well worth the risk. Veyron was far too scared of them to ever be rescued any other way. Finally, they managed to corner him.
The pit bull was finally cornered near a fence, so he was unable to run away with ease. The rescuers then placed a leash over him and began to pet him so that he would feel safe. They put their ‘Lucky Leash’ on Veyron and went on their way.
They then brought out a cage and placed Veyron in it so that he could be easily transported to the rescue center. He looked so fearful, however, the rescuers did their best to relieve his stress and anxieties.
10. Rescue Center
Veyron was then transported to the rescue center where they began to care for him. The first thing they did was give Veyron a nice and relaxing bath! It really helped to calm down his nerves.
9. Foster Home
Then it was finally time to find a temporary foster home for Veyron to live in. Rescuers looked until they found the perfect home for him. After all, he was still pretty wary about humans.
Despite being scared of humans and easily spooked, Veyron was lovely and was looking for affection. Hope for Paws stated that, “He was very receptive to human contact and love.”
7. New Home
Finally, the rescue organization found the perfect home for Veyron to stay in. It took a little while but eventually Veyron began to open up and show his personality off. It was a great sight to see.
At his new home, Veyron has managed to become friends with some of the other dogs staying there. He loves to play around and spends his days really enjoying life.
One of Veyron’s current favorite things to do is to go swimming. He loves to jump inside of the pool especially during an especially hot and sunny day.
4. Forever Home
Veyron is still on the lookout for his forever home. The rescue organization has been working steadily to give him the proper exposure. They want everyone looking for a dog to find out about Veyron.
In the meantime, Veyron has also been undergoing some dog training. This will prepare him for his new forever home so that he will always be on his best behavior. It has also helped out his confidence as well.
2. Doing Better
Since Veyron has been rescued he has been doing a lot better! He has continued to progress and trust humans more and more. It’s been a wonderful transformation that everyone has been happy about.
1. Great Rescue
If Hope for Paws hadn’t managed to intervene in Veyron’s life, who knows what could have happened to him. Now he is living a far better life and is getting all of the love and care that the has always desired and deserved.
