An abandoned dog was sitting there watching. She was on lookout for her owners, but wouldn’t let anyone compared to her. Residents in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania worried about her safety, because the dog clearly needing help and had been left during a park in the freezing cold. Good Samaritans found Janine Guido, an experienced rescuer, the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue, who drove the dog to rescue.
“Ever wonder what a dog dumped by her owners does?” Guido wrote on Speranza Animal Rescue‘s Facebook page. “Sits and watches. Expecting her family to return back.”
“This dog has been expecting 5 days. For the past 3 days, since I’ve been called, I’ve been out there,” Guido continued. “She had eaten out of my hand yesterday and therefore the day before. But scoots away once I tried to leash her.” Carla would approach for food but run away any time Guido tried to place a leash on her.
“Lots of individuals are flooding the world. Trying to catch her: Sadly, today is that the first time in almost every week with no sightings. She’s getting spooked. I’m praying she remains there. PLEASE if you see this dog. don’t chase. don’t feed her. don’t follow her or plan to catch her.”
She disappeared for a couple of days, but Guido received a call that Carla was spotted on someone’s porch. But again, the dog got spooked and ran off toward the woods. Shortly after, Guido got a call that Carla returned to the house .
That’s when things finally began to seem up. Guido explained on the Facebook live broadcast what happened in the morning and how frustrated she was when she caught her.her. On the other hand, the camera pivots to her back seat and there’s Carla!
After many days of trying, Carla was finally caught.
Guido drove Carla to her vet and located that the dog had no microchip and was around 15 to twenty pounds underweight and it seems that Carla has been on her own for a short time.
She was “covered in fleas” and limping from minor frostbite on her paws and possibly some arthritis. But she wouldn’t be exposed to the cold anymore . “No more sleeping under cold pine trees within the snow – tonight you’ll be sleeping during a warm and comfy home together with your family ,” wrote Guido. “Love you such a lot already, Carla.”
Before heading to her family, Carla got a way needed bath and a “nice beef roast sandwich from Arby’s on the drive home.” Clearly exhausted from her ordeal, Carla took an extended, long nap.
After a couple of days of rest, Carla is settling in alright and recently enjoyed a weekend stroll along with her foster siblings.
When she’s ready, Carla is going to be put up for adoption. To help Speranza Animal Rescue with Carla’s care and therefore, the other animals they rescue, visit their website.

“We aren’t sure why you were dumped therein park that day. We aren’t sure why your family could allow you to down as if they did – However, you don’t have to worry about cute girls. “Congratulations, Carla. You so deserve your fairy tale ending.”
