Judy Obregon, who helms rescue organization The Abandoned Ones (TAO), often frequents the grim roads near a dumping ground around Echo Lake Park, Texas – a location notorious as a ditching spot for animals. She skillfully spots live animals among the decomposing bodies and brings them to the shelter.
During one such drives, she noticed a puppy beside a fence. She immediately stopped her car and stepped out. The little pup was crying and limping as she tried to get to Judy as fast as she could. Judy cupped her face with love and brought her into the car.
She observed that the pup, now called Callie, had a string round her neck that had snapped off in her attempts to break free. Judy noticed the other part of the string in the same fence where she was waiting. Poor pup! She didn’t move from her spot hoping that someone familiar would come looking for her.
Relieved at being rescued from the decay, Callie gave Judy a very sweet kiss on the cheek! She was taken to the vet’s where she whined when touched and was found without a microchip. She seemed considerably healthy even after going through such a nightmare.
Callie is recovering well from her under-nourished state. She has developed a healthy appetite and seems to have emotionally recovered from the trauma of abandonment. Judy finds that dogs like Callie are always eager to forgive.
Within two days, Callie was smiling and up on her feet. Her past was behind her and she will soon be up for adoption. Let’s hope she gets the happy ending she deserves!
