When Stray Rescue of St. Louis entered a derelict home recently, they went upstairs and spotted a Pit Bull, alone and resting on a mattress. Seasoned rescuer, Donna, was first to approach the dog.
Stray Rescue described what happened next on Facebook:
“Over the broken glass and through the open window, we made our way up the stairs and passed a stained-glass window. He was lying in a patch of sun on the corner of the mattress, just staring out the window. I wondered what he was thinking about.”
“‘Whatchu doing? You wanna go bye-bye? Let’s get you out of here,’ Donna said to him.”
They managed to coax him to their vehicle.
“It only took him a second or two to be certain we were the good guys, and he eased off the bed and came over. Somehow, he trusted her and down the stairs and through the door he led us.”
It was obvious the dog was in pain and in urgent need of not only medical attention but love.
