A Senior Beagle’s Second Chance: How a Couple Rescued an Abandoned Dog and Gave Her a New Home

While driving to their home in rural Georgia, Adri and her partner stumbled upon a beagle wandering in the middle of the road. Concerned for the dog’s safety, they stopped and immediately went to her aid.

Upon holding her, they were heartbroken to see the beagle looking both scared and incredibly forlorn.

Adri comforted the small dog, reassuring her that she would be safe. They then took her home with them.

Attempting to Gain Mocha’s Trust

The couple named the rescued beagle Mocha and began the process of gaining her trust by hand-feeding her.

Worried that Mocha might have been separated from her puppies, they returned to the location where they found her to search for any puppies, but found none. It became apparent that Mocha had been abandoned postpartum.

Introducing Her to the Household’s Dogs

Mocha was then introduced to the couple’s other rescue dogs, marking a turning point in her recovery. The other dogs taught her how to engage and play outside, welcoming her into the group.

Mocha initially kept her distance from Adri, prompting Adri to interact with her through a glass patio door.

Initially, Adri would place her hand against the glass and call to Mocha. As the other dogs approached the door to greet their owner, Mocha began to join them, finding security in this method of contact. However, she would still flee if Adri opened the door.

Over time, Adri began to extend her hand outside the door, to which Mocha responded with affectionate kisses.

Mocha’s Breakthrough

After four weeks, a breakthrough occurred when Mocha approached and sat next to Adri without any coaxing. Overjoyed, Adri realized it was the first time Mocha approached without looking for an escape or being enticed by treats. “She was cautious, her eyes darting around, but she sat there with me,” Adri recalled.

With continued love and patience from the couple, Mocha’s fears gradually subsided.

Initially, the plan was to rehome Mocha, but as time passed, it became evident that she had already found her forever home with them in Georgia.

We celebrate that Mocha has found a loving family that provides the care and affection she deserves, finally securing the happy home she needed.
