A dog chose to stop and relax in an odd location while ambling through a neighborhood in the Texas city of La Porte. She was obviously out of breath since she had been walking for a while and also because she had several health issues. So the dog entered a house through the front door, made sure no one was nearby, and then took a seat in the porch’s shade.
The young child rested by laying down with her head on the welcome mat. She continued to sleep for several hours, seeming as though she were replenishing all of her energies or watching for assistance.
The family that lived there wanted to help the dog since she wouldn’t leave the location she had discovered.
The family gave her food and drink since she was very undernourished and dehydrated. The young girl gratefully accepted the assistance before going back to sleep.
The family decided to call the rescue organization This Is Houston after the dog continued to sleep in the same spot after several hours. This Is Houston instantly posted on Facebook to locate help and tagged volunteer Kourtney Crenshaw in the post.
Kourtney felt she couldn’t abandon the dog, who the gang had named Lila, for one more night on the streets after learning her backstory. Lila appeared to be delighted to see her when she arrived at the house where she was staying after gathering her rescue squad.
As she described to The Dodo:
“At first, I was a little hesitant, but once she smelled me, she allowed me to pet her and started licking my face right away. I grabbed her up and placed her in my car because she wasn’t using a leash, and we drove home.
Lila appeared to be waiting to be saved, according to the rescuer, since despite her extreme fear, it was simple to win her confidence and get her to safety.
The local veterinarian who Kourtney visited the next day identified Lila as an Australian Shepherd between the ages of 5 and 6 months. He also said that Lila’s demodex mange, which was causing her skin irritation and hair loss, could be treated with an antibiotic course and medicinal baths.
