Woman Moved And Left Her Terrified Dogs Caged On The Sidewalk With The Trash
A woman had been evicted from her Barstow, California home, and had left garbage bags filled with trash and unwanted clothes on the curb for the morning garbage pickup.
Alongside her trash, she also left behind her two dogs in a wire cage. The poor pups were terrified and confused as to why their owner had left them there outside all alone with no food or water.
Thankfully, a Good Samaritan saw the pups the next morning and immediately called Allen Boartfield, a volunteer with Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue, who drove to the house.
He named the dogs Catch and Treasure and tried gaining their trust. Although they were both scared, Treasure warmed up to him, but Catch was much more cautious. While trying to protect his sister, he nipped Boartfield’s hand a few times, but this didn’t stop Boartfield from saving them.
From that moment, it was clear that Catch was very attached to Treasure. He refused to be anywhere other than right next to her.
Boartfield brought the pups to Camino Pet Hospital in Irvine, where the pups were examined. It turned out that Catch had a cold and had to be put into isolation for treatment. Treasure was alright health-wise, but he was so matted that it caused her pain and she was barely able to move.
They groomed Treasure and gave her a much-needed bath, and not only did she appear different visually and physically, but spiritually as well. With her new look came a whole different dog. She was so much happier and friendlier now. She loves everyone she meets and wags her tail when people approach her.
Her brother Catch is still recovering and hasn’t quite broken out of his shell yet. Once he is fully recovered, the two of them will be put up for adoption– and must be adopted together.

10 Dogs Who Are Having A Worse Day Than You:
We’ve all had a bad day now and then, but when it comes to these dogs, they’ve got “ruff” days covered. Whether they woke up on the wrong side of the bed, are feeling a grumpy, or just didn’t realize it was vet visit time, these dogs give new meaning to having a bad day.
Check out these 10 dogs who are having a worse day than you:
1) This Dog Who Tried To Find The Perfect Spot
This adorable Frenchie just wanted to get comfortable. Just a few little digging motions and he would be all settled in for a nap. But it wasn’t in the cards– and OOPS, off he goes.
2) This Dog Who Got Caught With His Foot In His Mouth
Have you ever said something you instantly regret? It’s like you can’t get your foot in your mouth fast enough. We think this pooch opened his mouth at the wrong time and BAM! Instead of being reprimanded for saying something off-color, he just punished himself 😂
3) This Dog Who Has No Sense Of Timing
“Okay Karen, I’m ready when you are. Toss that ball!” This dog’s sense of timing is a wee bit off, but who’s to judge. It happens to the best of us, buddy.
4) This Dog Who Has The Clingiest Sibling
Sure, siblings are fun but everyone needs some alone time. This Golden Retriever can’t catch a break. His buddy has no sense of personal space and gives new meaning to “me and my shadow.”
5) This Dog Whose Owner Went Too Far
Is it any wonder dogs get cranky? One look at this guy and you’ll understand. If you thought your day was bad, just think about how it feels to be this pooch. We feel your pain, pal.
6) This Dog Who Isn’t Supposed To Be On The Furniture
When this dog’s owner isn’t home, this pooch figures he can do whatever he wants, and that includes being a total spaz all over the furniture. Little does he know his owner has hidden video cameras and he’s going to get a speaking to when his dad gets home. It was fun while it lasted though.
7) This Dog Who’s Just Too Tired
Sometimes you’re just too tired to care #NuffSaid
8) This Dog Who Mistakes A Bikini For A Toy
If it looks like a chew toy, it must be a chew toy, right? This Beagle has it all wrong. His owner will either be surprised by his new find or in total hysterics. Either way, this beachgoer is short of a top– but thankfully, she’s a good sport about it.
9) This Dog Who Nearly Destroys The Restaurant
Sometimes in life, a dog’s got to do what nature intended him to do. When this loveable Lab saw a cute black pooch, all bets are off, and there he goes. And the table goes with him.
10) This Dog Who Got Beat Up By A Cat
Sometimes in life, size doesn’t matter. Nor species. He may be the tougher opponent but this cat is a straight up ninja.
