Animal rescuers discovered Scootch under his abandoned home at the end of a gravel road surrounded by other abandoned homes.
Even though it was pitch black, they could see the brown Pitbull with their headlamps. When Donna approached him, he huddled in a corner and let out a low growl.
He abruptly stopped snarling once she tossed a hotdog at him. When Scooch noticed the meal, he hauled himself up with his front legs.
“He was so hungry that he flocked toward every bit of food I threw at him.” Donna sent a statement on the St. Louis Stray Rescue website. –
“We worried how long this poor dog had been alone and terrified here.” We agreed that enticing him out with food was the safest and least stressful choice after some back-and-forth.”
