A beautiful pup was abandon and terrified until an inspector with patience, and a heart of gold came to help.
Possum, a one-year-old Kelpie, was abandoned in the backyard of a property north of Perth.
Possum was absolutely terrified when RSPCA WA Inspector Sam attended the property and would run and cower whenever Sam tried to get close enough to rescue her.
Inspector Sam left food and water, returning daily to the property over the course of a week to gain Possum’s trust.
Finally, Inspector Sam was able to rescue Possum. She was so fearful that Sam had to carry her to the car.
Within moments of arriving at RSPCA WA’s Animal Care Centre, Possum’s demeanor changed completely.
She transformed into an affectionate, adoring dog and was adopted by a loving family within a few weeks. Thanks, Inspector Sam!
