Smart poodle barks at car, knows humans desperately need to see what’s inside

November 18th, 2020

Most people know that poodles are among the smartest of dogs. But this poodle shows that they’re as caring as they are clever.

The poodle’s owner was visiting her friend.

One morning, they were all about to hop into the car and get some brunch, when the poodle started acting strangely.

The dog refused to get into the car and kept on barking and scratching at the hood of the vehicle. The owners were confused and tried to pull the dog in the car. But the poodle kept on scratching at the hood and started whining.

The owner and her friend looked at one another. Could the poodle detect something that was wrong with the car?

So they lifted open the hood and saw a small ball of fur. The creature dived under the engine.

The humans kept on peering into the engine. Eventually, they got a good sight of what was inside their car. It was a tiny adorable kitten.

If they had started the car with the kitten hiding in the hood, who knows what would have happened?

The owner pet her poodle, realizing that the dog had just saved this kitten’s life.

At first, the humans tried to get the kitten free on their own. But they couldn’t reach him. So they called up Hope For Paws, a local animal rescue service.

The animal rescuer arrived as soon as he could. Soon, he had seen the kitten with his own eyes and worked out a plan on how to get the poor creature free.

So he tried to reach for the kitten from underneath the car. But the kitten kept on hissing and biting back. The rescuer had his work cut out.

Instead, the rescuer tried approaching the kitten from a different angle.

Yet any direction was a challenge. The rescuer’s main concern was that if the kitten darted out, then he could run into traffic.

So to protect the kitten, he and the people who had called him set up a barrier between the car and the road.

Hopefully, this would protect the kitten if he panicked.

But as they were setting up the barrier, the kitten ran from the car and hid under another vehicle.

The rescuer rushed to the other car. Then the rescuer lost sight of the kitten. He suspected that the animal was in the other car.

So they set the barrier around this car quickly.

But the rescuer couldn’t see the kitten. So he started checking under the other cars that were parked along the road.

Eventually, he spotted the kitten hiding behind a wheel.

Once more, they set up the barrier and attempted to rescue the kitten.

So the rescuer pushed a net under the wheel.

Then the kitten crawled into the engine of this other car.

That’s when the rescuer came up with another idea. He played a video of kittens meowing on his phone, hoping that the sounds would make the kitten cry back.

It worked, and the rescuer could tell exactly where the kitten was hiding.

Then they opened the hood. The rescuer saw that the kitten was standing on top of the car and grabbed him.

After hours of trying, they finally had the kitten out of harm’s way.

The rescuer then took the kitten back to the shelter. Soon, he had bathed the kitten and ensured that he was healthy.

And pretty soon, the kitten became playful and friendly. The rescuer realized that this adorable animal would have no problem finding a forever home.

Thanks to the poodle, this kitten is now thriving and living a happy life.
