"I didn't want to startle him because I knew he couldn't see," she said. "But the moment that I kneeled down next to him, he was so friendly. He responded really nicely to me petting him and touching him. I offered him some food, and he immediately ate it - he was voracious."
Camblor spent several minutes on the ground with Don Felipe, trying to show him that she meant no harm and that he was safe. When she sensed that he was comfortable, she scooped him up and put him in the back of her van, and drove to the organization's vet clinic in Puerto Peñasco.
"He actually sat in my lap in the back of the van," Camblor said. "He was so responsive to the slightest kindness, just leaning into me and enjoying his pets. He would have felt confused, for sure. He'd probably never been in a car, but he seemed ready to trust."
