A stray dog approached a shelter and extended his paw for help. The puppy was dirty and confused, and waited outside the gate, hoping for help. Members of Off The Grid Animal Sanctuary, in Cleveland, Texas, noticed his presence immediately. One of them said: “I heard barking, then I noticed a dog looking inside.” This Texas-based nonprofit is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating animals of various sizes, and its founder, Bionka Smith, welcomes them with love.

The woman shared this touching story on Instagram: She rushed to meet the puppy, although she was hesitant at first because of the dog’s large size. She wrote: “I could tell he was looking for help, but his cup scared me for a brief moment. Maybe I was afraid he would bite me, maybe he was afraid I would hurt him, but having a special connection meant we trusted each other.”

Once Smith felt he could trust the dog, he named him Deputy. I spoke to him calmly as he approached, and when he got close enough, he extended his hand as if asking for help. So the woman took him by the hand, trusted him, and welcomed him into the temple. Being a stray, Weiss had to go through quarantine before he could meet the other residents of the shelter. But before the quarantine began, there was something special to do: meet Kumo, the guard dog and leader of the pack, who welcomed him warmly.

In less than a week, Weiss completed quarantine and was introduced to the rest of the sanctuary’s group of animals: he integrated perfectly. He now spends his days running and playing with his new canine friends and sleeping his nights next to Bionka Smith, his beloved rescuer: “He’s an exceptional dog and loves to have fun! Weiss is living the dream.”
