A stray German shepherd, who eluded capture in freezing cold temperatures, was finally rescued on Wednesday evening by Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
According to the non-profit organization, volunteers tried to rescue the dog for the entire day, but he was so scared, he just stayed away from everyone – even refusing to enter into the humane trap with food being used as bait. At one time he nearly approached rescuers, but the leash spooked him even more than the cars passing by.
And to add more complications to the rescue attempts, the dog was so tall, he kept tripping the trap with his body.
Sadly, his feet were so cold he could be seen constantly lifting his paws up while running across the street trying to hide. Truckers in the area stated he had been dumped.
After a sleepless night and worrying about the dog’s safety and wellbeing, volunteers returned to the same spot early in the morning, knowing the dog would be hungry. This time, he was desperate enough to squeeze into the trap.
His name is Iceberg, and this boy is safe.
