Maddox began making arrangements for the nearly nine-hour drive between the shelter and Coby’s soon-to-be foster home in Dover, Delaware. That’s when Pilots N Paws, an organization that flies at-risk shelter dogs to their foster homes, came to the rescue, and managed to drop Coby into the arms of his loving new foster mom, Olivia Fritz.
But from the second the plane landed, Fritz knew earning Coby’s trust wouldn’t be easy. “Coby was so tucked into the seat that it was difficult for my husband to get him out,” Fritz told The Dodo. “Once he was out of the plane he went limp from fear … He was so shut down that really he did not respond to anything or anyone.”
