Hope For Paws received a call about a homeless dog who had been sitting outside of an apartment complex for days, alone and crying.
Rescuers arrived at the scene to help this poor pup, but as soon as she saw them come closer, she ran up the stairs to get away. They blocked off both stairway entrances to block her so she couldn’t escape.
With nowhere to go, the nervous pup tried to slip through the bars and jump off the balcony! Rescuers backed away so she would stop and not get hurt. They tried to coax her down the stairs with some food, but she was understandably hesitant.

Eventually, she reluctantly came down the stairs toward rescuers, but jumped off the side of the stairs, which thankfully wasn’t too high. She then ran off, but still stayed in the area. Rescuers realized that she was afraid of men, so one of the female rescuers, Loreta, led the rescue from there on out.
