Hope for Paws, the rescue group base out of Los Angeles, California, got a call about two homeless pit bulls who had been living together in a truck yard for over six months.
A woman working in the factory next door had been feeding the pair, but when she found out she had to relocate, she contacted the rescue group to see if they could help the dogs.
Eldad Hagar, the founder of Hope for Paws, went to the truck yard with the goal of saving the dogs, and brought along a team of volunteers from the U.S., U.K., Costa Rica and Australia.
“Once we secured the area, Lisa Chiarelli and Lisa Arturo joined me to try and corner the dogs,” Hagar told The Dodo. “The rescue was quite challenging because we always had to watch for our heads as we were under the trucks most of the time.”
The team went for the male first, who they named Clark. Clark was clearly terrified of the newcomers to his makeshift home, but didn’t put up much of a fight. He appeared to sense he needed to be rescued, and that these people were there to help.
Clark was shaking as his rescuers finally got a leash around him, but then someone was able to reach out and pet him. He didn’t seem as scared after that.
Clark’s rescuers left him tied near the fence while they went in search of the female dog, whom they later named Lois. As soon as she saw Clark by the fence she went to him, but ran away again shortly after out of fear.
Lois was pretty scared, but as soon as she and Clark were brought together again, she calmed down.
The pups were transported to the vet in separate cars, and as soon as Lois saw Clark come in, she started wagging her tail like crazy. It was very clear to everyone that these two loved each other very much — and that keeping them together would be the absolute best thing to do.
“After they received baths and medical care, they really started coming out of their shells, and now we really need help in finding them a loving forever home together,” Hagar said.
Lois and Clark are now waiting for their forever home, and will be adopted out together. If you’d be interested in adopting this adorable duo, you can contact LA Animal Rescue for more information.
