Venus, a white German Shepherd, found herself in the middle of the desert when her previous owner decided he no longer wanted her. With no access to any food or water, she ate food scraps from motorists and drank from a muddy puddle of water she found beside the road. She fended for herself for so long and struggled to survive.
White German Shepherd gets Help from a Group of Friends
Eventually, a group of friends with backgrounds in animal rescue learned about Venus. They immediately decided to help and did all in their power to bring her to safety. They knew how wary she was of people, so they took their time gaining her trust.
Four months quickly passed by, and Venus was still in the run. Every attempt to use a humane trap to catch her ended in vain. She trusted no one and evaded rescue for so long. But that was until the animal rescue group Hope For Paws was called in.
Eldad, the head rescuer, contacted his veterinary friend, Dr. Amsel, for help. He explained to him what the situation was they both agreed Venus’s situation was pretty unique. Hence, they needed a completely different approach to save her.
Barbie, Robin, and Tracy, the trio that looked after Venus, Dr. Amsel, a vet, Eldad and Lisa from Hope For Paws, and a few other volunteers drove to the desert to execute their plan. It was their last resort, and they couldn’t fail this time. They waited for the dog to stay away from the road, and it took two hours before they had their shot.
With a tranquilizer gun, Dr. Amsel darted Venus, and the dog panicked and ran as soon as she was hit. She slowed down and then fell to the ground. She spent the next two minutes trying to escape until the sedative finally took effect.
Four rescuers rushed Venus back to the mobile vet unit, and Dr. Amsel immediately attended to her. They made sure she breathed fine before they continued to the nearest hotel, where they spent the night. And by morning, the dog was ready to leave the desert. Venus had a really tough time. Thanks to everyone who played a part in her rescue, she found her way back home.
