Suzette Hall, the founder of Logan’s Legacy has many stories about rescuing pups. Some of them were easier than expected because the pups followed her car without objection. But some of them were kind of challenging and consisted of multiple failed attempts and many sleepless nights.
A small white dog Worth, who waited five weeks to be rescued is one of those cases. Hall had to spend days and nights in a row to rescue her. Before Hall came along, Worth had already spent three weeks on her own. A Good Samaritan saw the little pup walking around in an industrial area in Los Angeles and called the seasoned rescuer for help.
Hall got there quickly and deployed all of her rescue tactics to get her attention. She tried traps, foods and everything. But nothing would work because the people working there would chase her away.
She coaxed the pup into a fenced-in truck yard. She was about to slide a lead over the dog’s head when someone there opened the gate for the pup to escape. That was the last time she saw Worth in that area. She kept going back every day hoping that Worth would come back but she never did. Hall thought that she was gone.
Two weeks went by without any sign of the pup. Then one night, Hall received a message from a follower about a little dog. Surprisingly, that was the same pup she had been looking for.
Hall quickly went to the field where the dog was seen last. After looking for a while, something familiar appeared in the distance. It was her! Hall couldn’t believe that it was her. The dog hair was longer than she remembered, and she was covered in mats.
With the help of a security guard, Hall got the dog to her car for safety. Worth settled right in. she took the front seat and smiled for the first time in weeks.
“I called her Worth because that was the name of the street she was on and because she was worth all the trouble,” Hall said.
Worth is now in foster care. But Hall already has an awesome adopter lined up for her. She will be happily living in her forever home.
“She was probably the hardest rescue I’ve ever done. But she was so worth every minute of it” Hall said.
