Dogs have become an essential reinforcement in many agencies.

The police and military forces have security and bomb-sniffing dogs.

Emotional support dogs are also found in hospitals and care facilities, especially the elderly, terminally ill, or children with special needs.

Indeed, a lot of them are heroes in search and rescue operations.

They have a strong sense of smell and hearing that helps them look for victims and other warning signs keenly.

Some are even considered heroes, especially when they save others whose lives are in grave peril.

This pit bull named Lucy is the hero of this beautiful story.

Animal rescue organization No Kill Kern received a phone call about an abandoned dog in a field. The team immediately went to the area along with Lucy.

Lucy went around to look for the dog.

They could hear it but weren’t sure where it was situated.

After a few minutes, Lucy found the German Shepherd in the middle of the field. It looked scared and hungry.

Abandoned dogs display this behavior after they are separated from safety.

They tend to stay in one place and not leave unless there’s a predator or if they sense danger ahead. And since they do not move from where they were left, they end up hungry and thirsty for days.

The German Shepherd showed a lot of mistrust with humans.

Most abandoned and abused dogs have this behavior. After all, they were with humans first before they found themselves in this unfortunate situation.

There’s always a certain level of mistrust, even if your intention was good.

The rescuers slowly approached the dog, but it only started to run away.

Lucy continued to go after the German Shepherd. The rescue team thought of rethinking their plan to save the poor dog without scaring it away again.

They set a trap in the middle of the field, hoping the dog would run into it.

It’s not the bad kind of trap; they set up a cage in the middle of the field and placed food inside it.

Any dog who has undergone such maltreatment only to then be abandoned in an empty field would surely be hungry. This trap was their only hope.

Within minutes, the German Shepherd walked into the trap.

The rescuers came back and saw that it was now in the cage, but much calmer and more relaxed than when they first saw it.

They leashed the shepherd before they brought her to the shelter.

There, she was named Queen.

Indeed, she was given the treatment worthy of her name. They bathed her, fed her, let her run around, and enjoy her freedom.

She was also warmer to humans. It turns out she was a sweet pea after all.

It was all thanks to Lucy, who spotted her in that field that day.

If it wasn’t for that sweet, brave Pittie, who knows what would’ve happened to Queen. We’re all glad she is safe and sound and got adopted into her new home a few days later.
