During the heavy rains at the end of December Cathy and Bob were taking groceries to her mother who is on hospice. A beautiful large black dog with a pink collar was running on Triunfo Cyn Rd in Westlake Village. A car was following her, but they had their dog in the car and were unable to stop. They gave us their dogs leash since we didn’t have any of our Dog Days Supplies with us. The dog crossed Triunfo almost getting hit and went up a hill toward Three Springs. She tried to go through a wrought Iron fence and was stuck at her hips. We thought we were going to have to call the fire Dept to get her out. After a few minutes she was able to push through as she yelped in pain. Once in the backyard, Cathy went around the street and were able to put a leash on her. She seemed relieved and was happy to get in our car. We took her to our house, dried her off and gave her a soft place to lay down. She was very tired. We scanned her and she had a microchip, but it was not registered. She was so sweet and kept trying to pull our hands toward her to pet her. It was so hard to take her to the Agoura shelter. We felt sure she had to have a family, but no one ever came for her.
Unfortunately, no owners ever came for Dora. She became stressed and was showing signs of dog reactivity. So the shelter deemed her “Rescue Only” .
