She was just waiting for someone to come back.😢😢😢
Harvest was just ten months old when someone abandoned her in a residential area while packing her up in a cardboard box. Until a Good Samaritan found her the following day, she remained faithfully seated in the box.
The woman was surprised to see Harvest sitting in the box without food or water on a scorching summer day. But the puppy never wandered, not even in the 104-degree heat.
“She never moved from the box,” the President of Dallas Dog, Patti Dawson said. “She was just waiting for someone to come back.”
Harvest’s decision to remain in the crate the entire trip to the shelter astounded the animal control officials. They put the dog in a kennel with her box because they thought she could be paralyzed.
Volunteers at the shelter chose to leave the box with Harvest after she eventually got out of it.
“They left the box in her kennel because that was her security,” according to Dawson.
Harvest hid in the corner of her kennel for the first several days after arriving at the shelter. “You could just see her shoulders and body trembling from fear,” Dawson said.
But Harvest was adored by everyone who met her. Despite her fear, she had a sweet disposition and gradually began to change.
Harvest was taken in by Dallas Dog two weeks after she was saved and was immediately placed in a loving foster home. Harvest’s genuine personality began to emerge in her new house almost immediately.
Harvest is now energized and enjoys playing with her foster siblings, according to her foster mother. Harvest enjoys snuggling on the couch with her family and watching TV when she is feeling down.
“It took her about a week before she really opened up, and she hasn’t slowed down or looked back since,” Dawson said.
Harvest’s search for the ideal forever family is moving more quickly than usual, thanks to Dallas Dog. Dawson remarked, “She’s just one of those dogs. She has three meets and greets this week.”
Harvest would not ever have to set foot inside a cardboard box again as long as she continues to drink up the affection that her foster family provides for her.
