There have been numerous memorable animal rescues. All rescues give them a new lease on life. The following story is about the rescue of a large white dog who had been walking the streets for nearly four months in a rural community. Megan Allen, a Los Angeles animal rescuer, discovered the Great Pyrenees after he began hanging outside a woman’s home. To save “Miles,” she travelled two hours to Buttonwillow, California. Miles grabbed a few goodies from her hand but refused to be leashed. Miles didn’t want to be caught, so the local fire department stepped in to help.
Megan sought help from Danny Spanks of A Safefuur Place Animal Rescue, as well as Mad Love Dog Rescue and the Kris Kelly Foundation, after she was unsuccessful in rescuing Miles the first day.
Soon later, rescuers rushed to Miles’ aid!
When Miles wandered into a fenced area and hung out with a loose Husky, Danny, with the help of new recruit Courtney, caught him (the husky, named Luna, was returned home to her owner).
Miles may have been wary after being alone for so long, but after Courtney placed a leash around his neck, Miles seemed eager to leave the streets. When Megan came to pick him up to take him back to Los Angeles, Miles was beaming.
The days of wandering the streets for miles have come to an end! Mad Love Dog Rescue placed Miles in a foster home after he was examined by a veterinarian. “We were notified after he was recovered after what we’ve been informed was a year as a stray,” the rescue adds. “That’s a lot of time… much too much time.” Miles was his name, which seemed appropriate given how many miles he’d traveled.” (Editor’s note: it’s unclear if Miles was a stray for a year or four months.) It’s too long in either case.)
Mad Love Dog Rescue is now accepting applications for Miles.
Miles is an approximately 1.5-year-old dog. He’s a “goofball” who’s “funny and playful,” but he “hates to be trapped indoors without his humans,” according to his breed and early life.
Miles, according to Mad Love Dog Rescue, requires a home with “a very large yard with secure high fence or wall” where he may spend his days and return to his family at night.
