Hope For Paws received a report that this Pit Bull’s home had burned down. His family had decided to cut their losses and abandon him. The poor boy was probably still counting on their return, though. Because instead of moving to a different place himself, he continued to hang around the house, like he was waiting for them.
He was getting enough food to keep himself from becoming severely malnourished, thanks to the neighbors. Still, a real home would be better for him, where a family could take care of him and give him the attention he needed. Someone decided to give the Hope For Paws organization a ring so that they could discuss rescuing the poor creature.
Once again, it was Eldad who responded to the call. When he did arrive at the location, he had no difficulty finding the homeless dog. He initially thought that the dog would see him as a threat and therefore attempt to escape. But to his shock, the Pit Bull approached him, tail wagging and all. He was so ready to have someone pick him up and take him home.
Because of the dog’s surprisingly relaxed disposition, Eldad decided to let the dog have the entire cheeseburger that he’d brought. He didn’t give it in small pieces like he usually did. After all, the dog needed it, and he thought the act would help establish trust between the two of them. It worked and the dog became increasingly affectionate.
Before long, they were already acting like old friends who hadn’t seen each other in ages. Somewhere between the playful gestures, Eldad was able to put a leash around the Pit Bull’s neck. After that, it was time to head to the dog’s new home. He was given the name Popeye.
