There are many stray dogs on the streets of Bali. One puppy decided to seek shelter in a drainage pipe by the side of a busy road. Cars and motorcycles zipped through and none of them could see the pup’s eyes peeking from the small hole.
Aubrey V Lynn’s partner was heading to the gym when he saw the puppy. She said, “He kept driving past and knew he couldn’t just leave her, so [he] turned around and sent me a message.”
Heartbroken the dog was alone and fearing that it could meet an accident from the traffic, they decided to rescue the poor pup.
Lynn recalled, “We both felt really anxious because sometimes she would come out of the hole. But she wouldn’t let us get close enough to catch her.”
So, they brought dog food and hoped they could lure the pup out of the drain hole. For 24 hours, they sat and waited for the pup to emerge but it simply would not move. But the moment they were about to leave on their scooter, the pup ran right up to them.
And the pup, who they named Charlie, relaxed into their arms and did not try to get away.
They then took Charlie home. And she quickly became family as she adjusted well to her new home.
Lynn said, “We let her sleep and eat in safety for a while and then the first time we went to sit with her, she was timid but warmed up so quickly. You could tell she just wanted to be loved — it was really sweet.”
The pup has fit perfectly into their life and their family of two has now become a family of three.
