Neighbors living in Tennessee watched a beautiful white dog live alone in an unused lot for years. She survived by killing rabbits and squirrels. There had definitely been many attempts to rescue the wild animal, but she would become aggressive every time someone got too near her. So, some of them would just toss her some food and leave her some water.
But then, the owner of the property decided to do a huge construction project, and the dog had to be removed. This caused great concern within the community. Thankfully, a patient woman named Ryan Graney, a Nashville resident as well, decided to do something.
After she learned that the dog was going to be displaced, Bryan bravely went to see the dog every day after she got off work. She offered the dog, which she started calling Molly, food while patiently sitting on one spot. It took a lot of time, but eventually, the dog began to come close to her.
Then one day, she noticed that the dog followed her home. From then on, Molly was staying outside her property. She declined to go inside her yard, preferring to stay by the sidewalk. Nevertheless, the feral pooch waited on her.
Ryan continued to feed her for weeks. Until one day, she decided to coax the wary pooch into her backyard. She refused to go to Molly to feed her. Instead, the kind woman placed the food on her property and patiently waited for her to come in. Once the dog was inside, Ryan locked the gate.
Part of the family
Ryan tried to get Molly to come inside the house, but the dog refused to do so. It took several months before she was finally able to get her in. And it took drastic measures before it happened.
Ryan put a capsule of Benadryl in a hot dog, fed it to the dog, and waited for Molly to fall asleep. She then carried her inside. And when the dog woke up, she accepted her new living conditions right away. It took almost a year to finally get her inside a house.
It didn’t take long though for Molly to officially become part of the family. She got along well with Ryan’s other dogs and learn how to be a house pet.
