Searchers Looking for Missing Child Find Homeless Dog in Abandoned Home

When Stray Rescue of St. Louis rescues stray dogs from the streets every single day. They never know where they will find the next dog to join their family. But one dog came to them while a search was underway for a missing child.

“The search was on for a missing child. As the search party went through one abandoned house after another, they were certainly not expecting to find a dog,” Stray Rescue of St. Louis wrote. “But when they did, they contacted Stray Rescue.

“It’s actually a fairly common call as stray dogs find refuge in these abandoned homes,” they added. “And that’s where we found Parachute.”

The Mastiff mix was very afraid and gave rescuers a bit of a panic attack when she teetered close to the ledge of the derelict home. Watch the video to see how it turns out!

And if you’re wondering what happened to Parachute? Well, here you go. It seems fitting that Parachute ended up in a family with children, given it was the search for a missing child that lead to her rescue. We’re so happy to see Parachute really did find a safe place to land!

"Not sure if Parachute likes the kids more, or if the kids like her more!" -Parachute's Dad, Ben :)So happy to see this!! Thank you for sending to us! <3 <3 <3
