In Taiwan’s nature
are many abandoned dogs and so talking a walk in the countryside was
an encounter with a lame dog weakly waddling along a riverside. She dog
lost most of its fur and it could hardly be seen it once was a brown
and underfed the dog didn’t pay much attention when our member
approached her. But
suddenly another brown dog, looking much healthier, was rushing out of
nearby trees and barked at our member, positioning itself in between
dog and the human.
The dog obviously was trying
to protect its mate!
However, when the dog
learned our member meant no harm and she offered some food to them,
where approaching and the brave little “guardian angle”, later called Coco, was shaking its tail.
A few hours later, our
member had brought some food and leashes and was searching for the two
again. Soon Coco and her mate, now
Flower, were found and finally our member brought them both to her car
rescue them. But at the parking lot she was in for a surprise, because
kids were playing there. One approached the two dogs and said “Oh, you
two dogs!” The kid, about five or six years old, explained he used to
those two dogs to play with, but one day his dad said they ran away.
When meeting the boy, Coco
and even Flower were suddenly much livelier and
wanted to play with the kid who was stroking them.
But after a while his father
arrived and it became obvious the dogs where afraid of him. Soon
to wave his arms around in the air and claimed, those dogs would not
their family. Both Coco and Flower
to escape, when they heard them man speaking loudly. It seemed both had
bad experiences with him. The little boy was crying and begging his
get back his dogs, but with the obviously angry man, this was out of
question and so our member brought the dogs into her car and drove off.
Coco and Flower are now completely cured and
are looking for a good home, where they can feel save and loved.
