Prue, the founder of a rescue organization, got a call one day. It was from a woman who was concerned about a stray dog that she saw. This dog did not look healthy at all. The dog hardly had any hair, and she was roaming the streets aimlessly.
The woman tried to capture the dog, but she was unsuccessful. It was challenging to capture the canine. It would act out when someone tries to come near it. That’s how Prue knew that the dog needed to be sedated before they could shelter her.
The strategy of the rescuers was to use a sedation pill and mix it with some dog food. They would place it strategically where the dog can see it. The obstacle that they may encounter is if the dog would walk away once it is done eating. It will be difficult for Prue and her team to find the canine then.
Thankfully, the dog ate the food near a garage and stayed there. That was where she was captured. Belle, the hairless dog, had to stay in the vet clinic for three weeks. Even then, she was still very wary of people. Prue was worried for her because she seemed unadoptable.
When a woman named Kaho saw Belle’s picture, she realized that she wanted to help her. She called Prue and asked if she can foster Belle. Prue said yes.

For the first week, Belle would only stay under the bed. She would only get out to eat or go to the bathroom. Since Kaho also had two dogs, they helped Belle get out of her shell. Belle opened up to the dogs, but it took her three months to open up to Kaho.
When Belle was ready to go to another home, Kaho realized that she wanted to keep her. She already had four other dogs by then. If Belle went to another family, it would change the whole dynamic of the pack.
She did not want that. Kaho adopted Belle, and Belle is now happily living with her four siblings and her mom, Kaho.
