For any animal, being rescued is probably a pretty scary thing at first.
A scared pup is forced to fend for herself for who knows how long, and then suddenly there are all these humans surrounding her and calling to her. The terrified dog has no idea what is happening and might be hesitant to trust anyone. It takes a lot of patience and love to finally convince a homeless dog that being rescued is the best thing in the whole world.
A rescue organization dealt with this very difficult situation recently after hearing about a homeless golden retriever that needed help, ABC News reported. The pup, eventually named Clarabelle, had been living on her own and needed to be rescued.
Hope For Paws searched for Clarabelle until rescuers were finally able to locate her. The commotion terrified the sweet pup, though, and she immediately hid where rescuers couldn't reach her.
