It’s always heartwarming to observe a helpless animal saved. It’s the story of a stray dog who became trapped inside of an abandoned school in St. Louis for reasons unknown. Fortunately for the dog, he was discovered by some caring individuals who promptly alerted a local rescue organization.
Stray Rescue of St. Louis has always worked with animals who have had difficult lives, so when they were notified of a trapped pittie, they rushed to aid the sad creature. It wasn’t an easy rescue, though, because the dog was terrified and perplexed. As soon as he sensed human proximity, he bolted and hid. Who can judge him, though?
Donna Lochmann of the Stray Rescue had dealt with a lot of similar situations before, so she knew what to do. Surprisingly (or not), the helpless dog saw kindness in the humans hunting for him, and he simply appeared in front of Donna and her colleagues, tail wagging.
“Teacher’s Pet (as the rescue organization named the dog) was really called in by a couple of local ladies,” Natalie Thomson, the Stray Rescue’s director of marketing, recalled.
“They phoned us because they heard howling from the school.” When we arrived, there were two dogs in the property, but Teacher’s Pet appeared to be the only one who appeared to be imprisoned.”
Getting the dog out of the building, on the other hand, proved to be more problematic. The rescuers couldn’t get inside because they didn’t have authorization, so they had to take him out the window, which made Teacher’s Pet even more uncomfortable.
Thankfully, things changed as soon as they stepped inside their car, and the rescued pit bull couldn’t contain his delight.
And, because such a story could only have one happy ending, it wasn’t long before the puppy was adopted by a kind family. He could now enjoy his independence and the magnificent life he had always earned!
