Someone abandons a pet in plain sight.
A guy wearing a hood and a mask brought Trap, a leashed pit bull, and stopped just right outside the store. He casually tied the leash on a nearby fence, but the guy never knew that he walked right in front of a hidden camera.
Everything was recorded, including the moment when he took the dog’s picture as if to report that he had done it and left the scene as fast as possible.
After leaving the poor pittie behind, the guy even went inside the store to tell an obvious lie saying, “Somebody tied this dog up.”
The poor dog was looking at every person that walks by him.
Minutes after the man left, Trap was left scared and anxious, desperately trying to find his owner among the passersby. Sadly, every person just passed by him and avoided him. The store’s owner felt sorry for the dog, and so she decided to take him in for a while. Fortunately, the dog was able to calm down and had a place to stay for the night.
The store owner made the right decision to reach out to Mr. Bones and Co regarding the abandoned pitbull.
Mr. Bones and Co is a non-profit animal rescue organization in New York City. Elizabeth (Elli) Frank, the organization’s founder, rushed to the scene to take the abandoned pittie from the store.
Trap was nervous around Elli at first and he just stayed as a big unhappy pittie at the backseat of her car. She took Trap to their trainers in New Jersey and had Trap stay there temporarily as an emergency boarding case.
They found out that Trap was in so much pain.
After the vet examined him, they found out that the dog had severe muscle atrophy and hip dysplasia, causing pain in dogs.
If left untreated this could lead to more complicated muscular diseases. Despite the pain he was going through, Trap never really showed that in front of everyone. Elli and the rest of Mr. Bones and Co were now even more willing to help this pooch.
The second day in the training center, he was already a different pooch.
It was amazing how much Trap transformed just after a day in the training center. Elli could see the glow and joy in his eyes that was full of anxiety before.
She was able to spend Christmas together with Trap and even dressed him up with a fun costume. Even when he was taken to a foster home with his new mom, Kristin, it was incredible how Trap immediately settled in as if it was his own home.
Trap transitioning to a happier life.
He was snuggly and as playful as a puppy even though he weighs over 90 pounds. It was clear how Trap was happy being snuggled by both Elli and Kristin as he would always do something to get their attention.
With Trap being constantly spoiled with attention, we could just expect that he’ll be happy almost every day. Trap will soon be taken for a hip replacement with his new foster mom to accompany him. Hopefully, things will just get better for him and will find the perfect permanent home in the future.
