- A black Lab mix was thrown from a car onto the railroad tracks, but he refused to move away and waited for his owners to come back.
- Suzette rescued him from a dangerous situation by baiting him with food, since he was so hungry.
- The pup, now named Soldier, is getting the love and medical care he needs while he waits for a new home.
When a black Lab mix was thrown from a car onto the railroad tracks, he laid down where his owners left him and waited desperately for them to come back. A concerned onlooker saw that the pup would refuse to move even though he was getting hungry.
Suzette Hall, who is known to help stray dogs around Irvine, California, received a message of concern about the poor pup. She shared, “They always wait when they’re dumped because they’re so loyal and they think that the person is coming back.”
Suzette expressed her concern that the pup might get hit by a train, since the girl who messaged her said that the pup “would barely move until the train was almost there.”
She rushed to the train tracks and found the pup, who initially “got up and started to run.” When she “threw chicken his way,” he stopped, but “he was very scared and hesitant.”
So, she set up a trap with some hot dogs and chicken inside, and hid herself so the pup wont get scared. She tried to wait patiently, but worried that the dog might take his time. Thankfully, the dog gave in to his hunger and went in.
Suzette shared that she could have waited as long as it took, since she didn’t want to just give up.
Fortunately, it only took a few minutes until the pup, whom she named Soldier, was secure in the trap.
She then drove him to her vet to get checked.
Soldier is currently staying at the Camino Pet Hospital, where he is getting plenty of food and medicated baths.
Thanks to the love and care he has been receiving, Soldier is recovering. He even started wagging his tail when receiving loving pets from the vet techs.
Soldier is now waiting for a new family that will give him the life he deserves — thanks to the Good Samaritan who spotted him, and Suzette, who took the time to rescue him.
