An abandoned dog was sitting and watching. She was on lookout for her owners, but would not let anyone come close to her.
Residents in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania worried about her safety, as the dog clearly needing help and had been left in a park in the freezing cold. Good Samaritans reached out to seasoned rescuer Janine Guido, founder of Speranza Animal Rescue, who drove out to save the dog.
Carla would approach for food but run away any time Guido tried to put a leash on her.
Guido was on Facebook live streaming explaining what happened in the morning and her frustration in catching her. But then the camera pivots to her back seat and there’s Carla!
After many days of trying, Carla was finally caught.
Guido drove Carla to her vet and found that the dog had no microchip and was around 15 to 20 pounds underweight and it seems that Carla has been on her own for a while.
She was “covered in fleas” and limping from minor frostbite on her paws and possibly some arthritis. But she wouldn’t be exposed to the cold any longer.
“No more sleeping under cold pine trees in the snow – tonight you will be sleeping in a warm and cozy home with your foster family,” wrote Guido. “Love you so much already, Carla.”
When she’s ready, Carla will be put up for adoption.
