For two weeks, a dedicated rescuer patiently hand-fed a dog who had been found with a zip tie around his muzzle. The dog, named Beckham, had been through a traumatic experience, but with time, patience, and love, he began to trust humans again and eventually found a new family to call his own.

The story began when a call came in about a dog with a zip tie around his muzzle. This was a shocking and distressing situation, and the rescuer knew that they had to act quickly. Pinky Paws Search & ResQ was brought in to help capture the frightened and wary dog. They set up traps to catch him and his future foster mom even launched a drone to locate his whereabouts– but Beckham proved to be quite clever, circling the crates and avoiding capture.

After several attempts, the rescuers finally managed to catch Beckham. They knew that there was still a long road ahead for this traumatized dog, but they were determined to help him heal and find a loving home. His foster mom brought him home and began hand-feeding Beckham his meals while he hid in the bathroom. She worked to gain his trust and show him that humans could be safe and caring.

It took two weeks before Beckham was introduced to the rest of his foster mom’s pack. During this time, he began to show small signs of progress, such as nibbling on a toy – something he had never shown interest in before. This was a significant moment, as it indicated that Beckham was starting to feel more comfortable and playful.

With time and patience, Beckham continued to learn how to trust humans again. He eventually found the perfect family to help him continue his journey of healing. His new family will provide him with the love, support, and guidance he needs to fully recover from his traumatic past and embrace his new life.
