Photos: Woman Lies in the Road to Gain a Stray’s Trust

Amanda lay in the road long enough that Baby Bear felt comfortable approaching her.

Lost & Found Pets Wa State is a website run by two women, Amanda and Dylan, who are devoted to reuniting families with their lost pets. What started as a hobby has turned into a real mission, and their website is full of great stories. Perhaps the best is the rescue of a dog they call Baby Bear, who was spotted living in the woods looking emaciated. They found the dog pretty easily, but even food wasn’t enough to gain his trust. The Amanda had an idea:

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.

That seemed to be the ice-breaker, but it by no means the end of the story. The photos tell a wonderful tale of patience and devotion.

Baby Bear wass safe, but he still needed a home.
