Hope For Paws received a report that these two Poodles had been living in the sewer under lanes of traffic and that people had been feeding them, but none had ever been able to take them off the sewer. A volunteer had joined in on this rescue operation, which was convenient because this particular situation wasn’t exactly like the others they’d previously encountered. Blocking the known exits was one thing, but getting into the sewer, securing two possibly hostile dogs, and then getting back out with them would require a lot of teamwork and patience.
And that was exactly what this newly-formed team of rescuers did — they knew that there was no way they could convince either of the dogs to come out of the sewer where they could be secured using a snare. So what they did was they blocked the only exit they could use to get on one side, and then they drove to the other side so they could get themselves into their hiding spot. It was dark, dirty, and a little too big which meant that the two dogs would have plenty of room to run and avoid them, but escape was completely out of the equation.
When they were finally able to corner both dogs against what looked like a collapsed wall, they were understandably less than friendly, even as the rescuer tried to give them a cheeseburger. They did, however, manage to put a snare on each of them, which made it easier to haul them out, although they were still careful not to yank too hard and hurt the dogs. The real challenge was getting them out of the sewer without a struggle, and thankfully, both dogs had relaxed when they realized that their rescuers had no intention of separating them or hurting them.
They were both due for a make-over, and after receiving a relaxing bath, that was exactly what they got. Clean and freshly dolled up, they were now twenty times friendlier than when Hope For Paws first found them.
