Abandoned dogs also come in pairs.
Hope for Paws rescued two Maltese siblings from the junkyard. Hope for Paws founders Eldad Hagar and Lisa Arturo are proactive individuals in saving dogs, cats, and other animals in need in the United States. Hope for Paws regularly share their rescue stories on their YouTube channel, which has almost 5 million subscribers.
One of the most-viewed rescue videos of Hope for Paws was the rescue they did for the dog siblings at a junkyard.
The two siblings, one male and one female, are covered in motor oil. They are aloof to people. Eldad and Lisa named the two dogs Elmer and Elsie.
Elsie is more frightened than Elmer, so they decided to rescue Elsie first.
Elsie went at a tight space inside the junkyard. Eldad and Lisa had a hard time reaching her. She would also move her head away so that the snare won’t fit her head.
After a few minutes of adjusting the snare, they were able to capture Elsie.
Slowly, Lisa pulled Elsie out of the tight space. Elsie stiffened her body so that Lisa won’t easily drag her. When Elsie was out, she froze in front of Lisa. Lisa gave her time to loosen up. She slowly put on another leash on Elsie while removing the snare.
Meanwhile, capturing Elmer took less effort. As soon as he saw Elsie was okay, he appeared and approached her sister. Eldad and Lisa were able to put on the leash to Elmer quickly.
Elmer and Elsie were bathed at the shelter. They were covered in motor oil.
After their rehabilitation, Elmer and Elsie can’t stop playing and running in the yard! No more dirty junkyard for these two lovely dogs.
