Suzanne Hall’s rescues have been easier than expected, such as that of a stray puppy that followed her to her car but was unresponsive. But the toughest relief operations have resulted in many failed attempts and restless nights. Watts, a small white dog, was one such example, having waited five weeks before being rescued. For three months before Hall’s arrival, Waters was alone. When the Good Samaritan saw the pup wandering in an industrial area of Los Angeles, he asked for help from experienced rescuers.
Hall arrived on the scene immediately and employed his standard rescue techniques. “We tried all the traps and food,” Hall said. But nothing helps, the men who work there pursue her. Hall dragged the pup into the fenced yard of the truck. When she tried to put the leash on the dog’s head, someone on the property opened the gate and the dog managed to escape. This was the last time Hall saw Worth.
“I walked past it every day, hoping it would come back, but it never came back,” Hall said. At the time, I thought he was gone. Two weeks have passed and still no sign of the rambunctious pup. One evening Ms Hall received a message from one of her followers about the puppy. To her surprise, it was the same puppy she was looking for.
Suzette Hall got in her car and drove to where the dog was last seen. After watching for a while, something appeared in the distance. “I looked and it was her,” Hall said. I couldn’t believe it was her. It was unreal.” The dog’s hair was longer than Hall remembered and she had pigtails. With the help of a local security guard, Hall put the dog in his car. Worth immediately sat in the front seat and smiled for the 1st time in weeks.
I called it Worth because that’s the name of the street it’s on. Suzette Hall explains. And because it makes all the work worth it.” Worth is currently in foster care, and Suzette Hall has found a wonderful foster partner. Soon he will be living in a loving home as if those five weeks never happened. “This is probably the toughest rescue I’ve ever had to do.” Hall said. But it was also worth every minute.
