Everything changed for a crying stray dog who had fashioned a tiny bed out of a pile of snow — and it was all recorded on video.
“He was curled in a tight ball in the snow next to an electric pole,” Natalie Thomson, marketing and digital communications manager for Stray Rescue of St. Louis, a rescue organization, told The Dodo.
After getting a worried phone call from a local woman, Stray Rescue of St. Louis dispatched a search team for the dog.
“Her son had been out walking their dog and came upon this tiny, frail-looking dog in the alley,” Thomson said.
When the rescuer saw the puppy, she videotaped it with her phone. As she approaches him, the small puppy, wide-eyed and exhausted, can be heard whimpering, as if pleading for rescue.
