Fortunately, some good Samaritan saw the dog and called Hope for Paws to let them know. They also blocked the area off so that the dog would not be disturbed in her hiding spot.

Brave had recently given birth but she had not been nursing. They also were very cautious to make sure there weren’t any puppies nearby, and after determining that Brave was alone, they took her to the vet to check for a microchip.
