Recently, a little dog named, Truvy entered a doctor’s office waiting room. She saw two strangers greeting her. At first, the 3-year-old pup cautiously reached the men and woman without knowing what they wanted. After all, she had been taking care of herself for some time, so she didn’t easily trust others. Moments later, she got clicked everything, she knew them.
They got a call from a lady that lives across the major road near the cemetery. She said the little dog had been there a year, but she was getting braver and they were afraid she might try crossing the road. She wanted to know if we could come and try to get her.” Cindy Nash the founder of Nicholas’ Pet Haven said.
Later that day the rescue group ventured out to find the stray pup and set humane traps. Then they met Dr Harshivinderjit S. Bains who had been watching over her from a distance.
“He told me he loves that dog and wanted to take her home,” Nash said. “She had been living inside his clinic as it was being built and managed to stay there all last winter when it was so cold. He provided her with bedding, food and water for a year but could never touch her.”
When Nash returned that evening surprisingly the little do was sat inside the trap ready for rescue. “I brought her to my house not knowing how she would act,” Nash said. “I sat on the floor and opened the cage. She ran straight into my lap and I got the biggest kiss [imaginable]. She was an absolute doll. Covered in sticker burrs, I put her in the tub and started cutting out the matted mess. She was so happy to be saved, and it melted my heart.”
The next day they met the vet, and there they found her microchip. “We called the family, and they were ecstatic!” Nash said. “They moved to Texas a year ago and Truvy went outside in her new yard. Little did they know, she could squeeze through the iron fence, [and] off she went!”
According to them, Truvy has been missing for nearly 13 months when she was rescued. Truvy’s mom said that she searched for her for a month after she had disappeared. She also emailed all the clinics and pet rescues and shelters within 60 miles about her. For that reason, Amy Logan, Truvy’s mom made sure that her microchip stayed up to date.
“While we never gave up on finding her, after over a year, it was still a shock finding out she was not only found, but in good health after all she had been through,” Logan said.
On the next day, Logan reunited with Truvy. It took her a minute to figure out that it was her mom. Whenever they got home, she was settling down and knew she was home safe and sound. She was so lucky to be with her mm again.
She’s not the same shy girl she was a year ago,” Logan said. “[But] I can’t express how grateful I am to Dr Bains for everything he did to care for and protect her.” Dr Bains was worried that he didn’t get to give her a forever home, but was happy to hear that Truvy is finally with her mom.
Thanks to all the teamwork between the rescue team, Dr Bains and everyone in between, Truvy and her family can bring their lost times back.
