She plays dead on the road, when I understand why my heart is filled with warmth

Upon learning about Bear, a forsaken and lost canine in the Evan’s Creek mountains, Amanda felt compelled to take immediate action.

Teaming up with her friend Dylan, they embarked on a mission to locate the solitary dog. Despite their persistent efforts, attempting to entice Bear with food and treats for over an hour proved futile.

Undeterred, they returned the next day only to find Bear in the same spot. Their attempts to coax him closer were once again met with resistance.

Determined to make a breakthrough, the girls hatched a remarkably creative plan. Amanda decided to feign helplessness by lying down and “playing dead”, hoping to draw Bear closer.

The following day, Amanda positioned herself on the ground in the suspected area, and what unfolded two hours later warmed the hearts of countless animal enthusiasts.

The saga began when a driver spotted a distressed and malnourished dog at a campsite in Evans Creek, Washington State. The dog, later identified as Bear, exhibited fear and aggression when approached.

Days later, Amanda caught wind of Bear and, with her friend Dylan, endeavored to rescue the dog and transport him to an animal hospital.

Despite their attempts to lure Bear with treats, his suspicion prevented any close interaction.

Refusing to surrender, Amanda adopted a different approach.

Assuming a fetal position and playing dead, she caught Bear’s attention. He cautiously approached, sniffing her for 20 minutes before losing interest and retreating.

Undeterred, Amanda persisted. An hour later, Bear returned and sat beside her. Over the next two hours, she earned his trust, assuring him that she meant no harm.

Together, they journeyed to the vet, where Bear received the much-needed assistance he craved.

The animal welfare organization Lost & Found Pets in Washington attempted to locate Bear’s owner without success. Fortunately, a caring family expressed interest in adopting Bear, providing him with a loving home.

This heartwarming tale of Bear’s rescue, a testament to the unwavering dedication of these animal advocates, deserves to be shared far and wide.
