Julie, a volunteer at a dog rescue in Detroit, was called to help a dog stuck in the attic of a house around two years ago.
Dog found in abandoned house
When she arrived at the house, she realised matters were much more serious than she previously thought. The dog had been left alone in the house because his owner had gone to prison! To make matters worse, he had been gone for around 10 months. How the dog was still alive was a mystery, and nothing short of a miracle.
Julie tried to entice the dog out of the attic using treats. And after a few minutes, the dog finally started to trust her enough to come out of his hiding spot.
A brand new start
Julie immediately took the dog home with her, and knew she couldn’t give up on him. She named him Star, and helped him come out of his shell.
Today, Star is a happy and confident dog, and life in the attic is just a distant memory.
