A heartwarming story of an abandoned dog’s journey to trust and love has captured the hearts of many. The dog, now named Rosita, was abandoned by her previous owners and spent months waiting for them to return. A dedicated animal rescuer named Judy spent months trying to gain Rosita’s trust and bring her to safety.


Judy would often sit in her truck, attempting to coax Rosita closer, but the dog would always return to the spot where she was abandoned. Finally, after months of persistence, Judy finally managed to capture Rosita and bring her to safety. It took at least an hour to coax her out of the crate, but once she was out, the process of building trust began. It took about a week before Rosita finally decided to trust Judy.


The connection between the two grew stronger as the rescuer made a routine of telling Rosita, “I love you,” and kissing her on the nose every morning. This simple act of love and reassurance helped Rosita feel safe and loved.

Despite having fostered Rosita for two years, Judy has decided not to keep her permanently. She believes that if she kept Rosita, it would be more difficult for her to save more animals in need. Instead, Judy continues to foster her and provide her with the love and care she deserves.
