When animal lover Amanda Guarascio heard about a lost dog in her area she knew she had to help.

Someone had reported a sighting of a dog that was not allowing humans to approach it, despite it appearing to be severely malnourished. The nature spot where it had been seen wasn’t far from Amanda’s home.

Amanda decided to act fast and immediately set out to the spot where the dog-in-need was last seen.

A Facebook post about the dog claimed that people had been trying to help it for days yet nothing seemed to encourage him. He did not want the food he was being offered and ran off if any human even tried to get close.

After seeing the post, Amanda had an idea. She thought she knew how to get the dog out of the woods.
