Lesbian couple save starving dog by ‘playing injured’

A lesbian couple in Washington, United States, helped rescue a starving stray dog they found in the mountains by acting injured.

The couple had heard reports of the dog living in the wilderness at Evans Creek, who was timid and ‘unapproachable’.

They initially approached the dog with food, but repeated attempts to feed him failed.

After hours of trying, they decided on a different approach – by acting injured to show the dog they weren’t a threat.

One of the couple, who is unnamed, explained: ’I got out and went behind the truck, and then fetalized on the gravel road right by the pup with my back to him. He growled a little bit, but eventually got close enough to smell me. I laid in the road for about 20 minutes before he lost interest and wandered off.

‘I got back into the truck to get warm, and we waited until he went back to a grassy spot on the side of the road to lay down. Dylan dropped me off and drove away. It was cold. So cold!!!  Cold enough that it started snowing.

‘Once she drove away, I got down on the ground with my back to the pup, who we have decided to call Bear (okay, Baby Bear to be exact) and slowly started crawling backwards towards where he was laying.

‘Once he started to get uncomfortable, I curled up in a ball and stopped moving. The next hour was spent slowly inching closer and closer to Bear.

‘By now, Dylan had pulled back up across the road to watch us, and was also warning cars that her insane girlfriend was laying on the side of the road and not to hit me (please!)

‘Finally, I got right up next to Bear.  He growled a little bit, so I started whimpering and yawning (which is a calming signal), and continued to slowly get closer and closer until I was rested up against the sweet little Baby Bear!

‘We had to run home at around 7pm, and when we got back up the mountain we saw Bear laying right where I had last laid with him. Dylan dropped me off, and I went straight over to him.’

The couple were eventually able to take the dog home with them, and are now looking to reunite him with his original owners.

‘REST ASSURED we are going above and beyond in trying to locate his owners, in case he was lost on accident and his family is missing him. We are contacting all shelters and vets to make reports and are checking two years worth of Missing Dog posts!’

Baby Bear is currently residing with a foster couple whilst the search for his original owners continues.

Anyone with any information on the dog should contact Lost & Found Pets Wa State on their Facebook page.
