A concerned citizen called Hope for Paws about a dog needing rescue.

Carey Linnell from Los Angeles, California, called for help because the neighbors heard a dog crying. They didn’t know what to do since they felt scared about how the poor dog would react.

Eldad and Loreta of Hope for Paws went out and helped. They found a homeless German Shepherd hiding under a van. The neighbors said she had been there for several days already. The dog they named Rain was whimpering and had the most heartbreaking cry you’d ever hear.

The dog ran farther inside the parking area when Loreta tried to reach out to her.

Rain seemed so scared of the human interaction that she continued to whimper even when offered some food. She would also run back and turn around or go under the van when Loreta attempted to get near her.

Eldad wrapped the exit ways with a net so Rain couldn’t run away. He went into the alley behind the parked van so the dog would move toward Loreta. Slowly but surely, they finally leashed her. But their challenging rescue didn’t end there.

Rain was obviously under a lot of stress.

She was pacing and tried to avoid both Eldad and Loreta as she tried to hide at the back of the vehicles again, but our hero rescuers were never discouraged. They tied an additional gentle snare around Rain’s neck. The scared dog finally calmed down as Loreta continued to pet her.

Rain finally walked out of the open and hugged Carey. It was as if she was thanking her for calling rescuers. They got her in a cage and brought her to the shelter.

There, Rain got the dose of love and pampering she deserved.

Loreta brushed her face and bathed her. Rain was quiet and well-behaved the entire time. You can see the gentleness in her face, loving Loreta’s loving strokes on her face. Rain finally felt the love she deserved.

It was no surprise that this sweet dog got adopted right away.

Allison, Kyle, and Ernie Dunbar welcomed Rain into their family. They changed her name to Sassy Pants Dunbar, and it’s a name that fits her personality very well.

Eldad and Loreta visited the Dunbars, and our dear Miss Sassy Pants was so happy to see them both. She ran like she had met an old friend and went for kisses, hugs, and cuddles. She even gravitated more towards Loreta, which proved that a dog would never forget the person who rescued her.

It was such a heartwarming scene seeing Sassy Pants happy and free.

She was so active and ran around the lawn like wild! She even got a paw brother to play along with. Sassy Pants was so much happier; she looked like a different dog from that one they rescued from the alley – and that’s a great thing.

This is why it is important to look after animals who need help. What Carey did was beyond awesome for calling for help for poor Sassy Pants – a call that gave her a chance at a better life.
