A couple of months ago, some women were taking a drive in the middle of the desert in California when they spotted a white German Shepherd. They tried to approach it, but it was very nervous and wouldn’t let them get close. The women didn’t give up, however, and returned to keep leaving food for the pup. When she was still too scared, the women became worried about the high temperatures and called Hope for Paws (HFP).

The dog, later named Venus, had managed to avoid all humane traps and animal control, so Eldad Hagar and his team knew they had to act fast. They brought a trained person to tranquilize her and a mobile vet unit, so that they could provide all necessary care for her as quickly as possible.
Venus fought the tranquilizer, but soon passed out and the team was able to remove her from the desert. She was checked out, found to be okay, and everyone went to a hotel to sleep for the night. When she woke up, the dog was obviously confused and upset, but Hagar sat with her, trying to earn her trust. In the morning, Venus began to relax when the women who were feeding her came to eat breakfast with her.

When she was more comfortable, everyone said their goodbyes and Venus made her trip back to Los Angeles with HFP. She was soon placed with a foster through Coastal German Shepherd Rescue, where she shares a home with two other German Shepherds.
Now, she just needs a forever home – someone who wants a loyal, loving dog who will only have eyes for them. Apply through Coastal German Shepherd Rescue if interested!
