A puppy’s amazing rescue after getting trapped in tar

 In Blog, Rescue Stories


She’s the sweetest little angel you’ve ever seen. All four of her delicate little legs were stuck together in tar and she was completely unable to move except for her head. She had no idea what had happened to her and she was trembling with fear.

The 3 month old darling had been playing near a patch of road that was being repaired when all of a sudden she found herself stuck right to the road, her tiny little legs unable to free herself. A young boy playing in the neighborhood saw her struggling and managed to pull her off the road and bring her safely to his home where he then called us to the rescue.

It was 9 o’clock at night when we got her back to the shelter but we couldn’t wait a moment to begin the vegetable oil and bath treatments to remove the tar.

After two oil and bath treatments that night, we let her get a good night’s rest and then gave two more treatments the next day, getting all the tar off except for a few small patches.

Sometimes people say that helping animals is thankless work because animals can’t talk, but if there was ever an animal to show otherwise it’s this little sweetheart. Just watch the ending of the video above!

She is now back with her mother now and she lives right outside the house of the little boy who saved her. The boy’s family feeds her and is ready to call us right away if she ever gets into trouble again.

    If it wasn’t for he young boy who spotted her, pulled her off the road and caring for her before the AAUI came to help, outcome could have been disastrous. I wish the boy can see the happy puppy again.

    Everyone at AAUI is wonderful!
