“Dead” Dog Lifts His Head-Up When The Person He’s Been ‘Waiting’ For Comes To Take Him Home

Judy Obregon, the founder of a dog rescue organization called The Abandoned Ones, received a call about a stray Poodle-mix she had been trying to save. But as soon as she saw the photograph of the dog on the ground, she knew it was too late. He had already vanished. Obregon got a call earlier about local kids tormenting the dog.


“Kids were throwing food out on the street, so the dog would run out onto the street,” Obregon told The Dodo. “Then neighbors saw some children tying a water hose around his neck.”

In the end, though, she couldn’t find him. She went back to the neighborhood three times in order to try and trap him but with no success. Then, after receiving the photo from the woman who had reported the dog to her in the first place, it shattered her heart. If only she’d been able to capture him sooner.

“I started crying because I felt like I didn’t do enough,” Obregon said. “I felt like I wasn’t there on time to get to this dog before he ended up in this situation.”


However, the dog didn’t deserve to be left there like that, so Obregon ran to him. When she arrived, the most incredible and unanticipated thing occurred.

“When I came to him, he was still in the same spot, but his head was up,” Obregon said. “I was probably the happiest person in the world.”


Gully was discovered by Obregon, who named him Gully. She was certain that if she didn’t arrive soon, he wouldn’t have survived. Gully was undernourished and dehydrated when found. He couldn’t walk because he was so weak. He was understandably frightened as well. Gully, on the other hand, seemed to calm down once he was inside Obregon’s vehicle. He realized that he had been rescued.


“He started giving me kisses,” Obregon said.

After a few days at the vet, Gully made a full recovery. Obregon’s friend, Crystal, took him in as a foster while they searched for a forever home for the deserving pup.

Gully’s transition from street dog to loved pet was astonishing. Everyone who met him was astonished that he had so quickly put his former lives behind him and trusted people right away. Then Obregon got the good news: Gully had been adopted.


He now has the ideal livelihood and will never have to worry about being hungry or chilly again. He’ll never be maltreated. The “dead” dog was very much alive—and faring well!

Obregon will be ‘forever grateful’ to the woman who called her up and sent her that heartbreaking photo of Gully.


This is why I do what I do,” Obregon said. “And I have to say that if it wasn’t for that neighbor, who I will never know, Gully wouldn’t be alive. She pretty much was the one who saved his life.”
