Puppy So Relieved To Be Rescued He Buries His Face in Rescuer’s Arms

A tiny puppy abused and cast aside is safe in the arms of rescuers at Stray Rescue of St. Louis after they received a call from a Good Samaritan. The concerned caller told them the dog was concerned resident hiding among a junk pile where a lot of neighbors dump their trash and unwanted belongings.

A wicked person thought that’s where this puppy belonged.

Rescuers noticed “Chowder” had wounds on his face. “He’s just a little puppy! His eyes are messed up and he has puncture wounds on his face. Despite what he’s been through, he is so happy,” Stray Rescue wrote on Facebook. “He is safe now.”

When Donna approached Chowder he wagged his tail and let her pick him up. The Good Samaritan told them that there are people in the neighborhood involved “with Pitbulls, meaning dog fighting. Poor Chowder was probably used as a bait dog and bitten by a big dog.

The moment they got Chowder in the car, he buried his head in one of their shoulders with relief.
