A four-year-old pooch, who had been rescued after having been destined to be dog stew in the Asia illegal dog meat market, was rescued a second time after she ran away from the rescue organization in Manhattan during last Tuesday’s blizzard. According to the Animal Haven in SoHo, Pandy, the mixed-breed adorable pup had been on her walk early that afternoon when she became spooked and bolted away from her handler:

“She was being walked today by one of our incredible volunteers in the winter storm and got away from him. We are heartbroken and have been searching all over the city in the bitter cold and snow. She was lost in Soho at the corner of Grand and Lafayette and was last seen on 18th Street just north of Union Square about an hour ago. She is microchipped and wearing a purple collar with a leash attached. Please note that Pandy is extremely shy and may try to run if you approach her,” the group posted on their Facebook page.

And so frightened little Pandy ran nearly 40 blocks to the entrance of the Lincoln Tunnel where she could easily have been killed in the heavy traffic, but fortunately she was spotted by our boys and girls in blue – this time by the Port Authority of New York and the New Jersey Police Department as she was just about to enter into the tunnel. The officers weren’t aware of Pandy’s plight, but were able to grab her dragging leash and transported her to the ASPCA on East 92nd Street. From there Pandy was were able to be identified and returned to the rescue group via her microchip.

Pandy suffered from the cold and bleeding paws; she seemed to need some extra love from volunteers and the police – everyone was happy to oblige. After all, Pandy had already traveled more than 8,000 miles to come to New York and ran 2.5 miles in the city during the snowstorm. What a lucky little dog!

Could it be that Pandy has nine-lives just like her feline friends? What a story this pup could tell if she could only talk.

    Thank you!!!! The torture and pure hell that the Asian meat market dogs go through is absolutely heartbreaking. How could anyone treat an animal like that??? Shame on you who torture and kill man’s best friend. And shame on you who look the other way and simply do nothing to stop it.

      I dont say things like fire within kathleen.
      And i never said I was a vet. Iv never said anything about myself no matter how much you yell and flap around. Why would i be talking about myself to an unhindged stranger. Hello ! this is pet rescue report not online dating ya bone head.
      You keep referring to me as a vet and asking me if im a vet at the same time?
      You seemed a little confused, again your blood pressure just spiked into the danger zone again.
      But dont worry. Some day youll convince an online entity (compleat and unimportant stranger) about what a rational , mature, educatded acomplished, respected professional working in the “thick of it” as you say, you are.
      But as for the here and ones buying it.

    Im just not sure you know the amount of blood and guts and terror involved in the danger in this particular international rescue. Giant trucks with animals and people are going over clifs.
    The law is still on the side of meat farmers.the humain chain from asia to europian, meditarian,central ans south america and europe are taking the personal risk and financial blow.
    The deal was we promised we would adopt them out.
    These are one generation gems people. they are the first to make it our alive before the laws change and the stories of the bond between these dogs will be ledgendary.
    They have come to far and seen too much to be sitting in a dog shelter.
    Find out who has them in your town. Have an event, Have a big party for them. Present them, tell there story and follow thru.And if there any dogs left over have an event in a differant parking lot 2-weeks later. And Kathleen, dont worry about my spelling. I know you know what im trying to say.
