In Albuquerque, New Mexico, a 10-month-old puppy is finally safe after eluding rescuers for months. Dash, as he was named for his obvious talent to run away from anyone trying to pursue him lived on hunting rabbits and birds.
According to the Pawsitive Life Rescue of NM, the organization who has been actively trying to rescue the pup spotted by many in the West Mesa area, the pup became a popular sighting on social media. Unfortunately, the poodle and schnauzer mix had no idea he was so well known nor did he seem interested in being corralled and had steadily been able to escape any attempts to trap him.
And then came the rescue organization’s big day; they set up four traps and within 24 hours, Dash was safe from the streets forever.
His rescuers think Dash has spent most of his life on the streets; when found he was matted to the skin. Groomers spent hours cleaning him up, and when finished they had removed four-and-a-half pounds of matted fur, fleas and lots of ticks.
Little Dash has a long way to go as he is beginning to feel a bit more comfortable and his gaining weight. He plays, he’s working on his bathroom skills and even enjoys an affectionate snuggle.
Dash isn’t ready to move on to a forever home yet, but if interested in adopting this little guy, follow his progress on the rescue’s Facebook page.
