The progress was slow, but Coca refused to lose hope — and finally, on the eighth day, Chance decided he was ready to trust her.
“When I pulled up on the eighth day, Chance came running to my car,” Coca said. “I stuck my hand out the window and he immediately licked it. I was shocked! I got out of my car and he started wagging his tail. I knew today was the day.”
Coca slowly began to approach Chance, and this time he didn’t run away. Instead, he lay down, so she held out her hand for him to smell before finally trying to pet him for the very first time.
