Blossom the chocolate lab was living on the porch of an abandoned house in Oklahoma. She was shivering, hungry, and terrified of any human contact. A concerned neighbor named Erika repeatedly tried to catch the neglected dog. She could not get near enough to catch Blossom, so she left food and water for her every day. One day Erika snapped a photo of the heartbroken dog leaning pathetically against the wall of the porch and posted it online.
That was the day Blossom’s life changed forever. A rescue team from Woodward, Oklahoma saw the photo and made it their goal to bring this neglected dog to safety.When WOOF pet rescue learned about a beautiful stray dog living in the porch of an empty house, visibly scared, they believed the right thing to do was to take her at their shelter in order to provide her with more decent life. The problem was that Blossom was afraid of people and she wouldn’t let anyone go near her.
The reason for this was unknown to the people from the rescue group so they assumed it could have been abused in the past. After offering food and water, they somehow managed to gain her trust and that’s when they took her in. Blossom’s skin was in a very bad condition because she had never taken a bath in her life.
The people from WOOF knew they had to clean and bath her before they gave her other treatments. After having her first bath and the medications Blossom started to blossom. Thanks to the people from WOOF, Blossom learned what it means to be loved and surrounded by people who care. Her life is so much fun now. She enjoys rolling in the dirt and taking long walks, but most important of all, she now knows how to smile.
