Dogs Touching Stories

Old Dog Was Rescued After Living Nearly A Decade Under A Container

Living lonely without a home is something that you can’t imagine if you are not the one who directly experiences it. You don’t know how much it horrible, and how you can survive like that for days, let alone for years.

The senior dog in this story had a past that would make you feel heartbroken. She had lived under a shipping container for 9 years and went through every single day by herself, lacking everything. Until she was rescued by Hope For Paws, an animal rescue organization, her life started to turn the page.

They recently got a call for help from a woman saying that while doing TNR work in the area, she saw a dog in a junkyard. The team came on the scene and found the dog lying under a container. She was an old dog and had been homeless for nine years. People told them that her owner was deported and the poor dog was just left behind, struggling miserably in these poor living conditions.

From time to time, the nearby people tried to help her by giving her some food. But needless to say, everyone knew that it was not enough for her. In addition to the lonely life, the unfortunate dog also suffered from pain. She was hit by a truck one day and was not taken to the hospital for medical treatment. Therefore, she eternally lost her right eye.

The team spent some time giving her treats and finally, they earned her trust. They slowly took her from under the container, then named her Josephine. Pheenie was known as her nickname.

She seemed not to be scared of strangers, letting them pet her. It had been too long that she hadn’t received such affection.

Realizing she was in unwell status, the team decided to take her to the vet for proper care. They gave her a bath (the first bath after many years), then made a health check-up for her. According to that, she had several medical issues and needed some treatments. But she was safe and had a warm place to take a rest now.

After such a dark life, Pheenie found her light. Hope For Paw’s friends at the L.A  Animal Rescue gave her a new life that was full of love. Pheenie enjoyed both warm sunlight and cold white snow. She got some friends and often went out to play with them. It was like she lived a totally different life. She was loved again, and she deserved it.

Five months after being rescued, Pheenie lied next to the fireplace, and breathed her last breath in peace.
