Two sweet dogs named Camryn and Emma are back together again, after being abandoned by their owner in a national park. Suzette Hall, Founder of Logan's Legacy Rescue, was tipped to the dogs by a Good Samaritan, who was feeding the two dogs for about two weeks.
“She kept trying to get them, but they were too skittish,” Hall said. The dogs would accept the food, but never leave each other or the spot of abandonment.
The person who spotted them called Hall for assistance. “We were having the worst heatwave and rainstorms when she called,” Hall said. “I really didn’t think they’d still be there, but they were! Just laying there next to each other.” The dogs would not go anywhere without each other, even into the trap. “They were both trying to go into it together, which never works,” Hall said. “The trap won’t shut if two of them are in it.”
To counter this, she used a snappy snare, a tool to capture a dog by the neck humanely. Once she got one of the dogs, she would use that to capture the other in the trap. “It took hours,” Hall said. “But I wasn’t giving up.” Eventually, she was able to capture the male dog, eventually named Camryn. He was placed in the van and she went to get the female dog. “I reset the trap, but Emma wanted nothing to do with it,” Hall said. “She just wanted her brother so bad.”
Rather than going near the trap, Emma circled the van in search of her brother. “I got in the van and held her brother,” Hall said. “I was rubbing Camryn and showing Emma that everything was OK.” Emma was hesitant at first, but soon jumped in the van to reunite with her brother. “They were so excited to be back together,” Hall said. “Emma just kept kissing her brother.”
The dogs were taken to a vet. They were briefly separated to be evaluated, spayed, neutered, and vaccinated. “When [the vet] first brought them out from the back, they were dying to see each other,” Hall said. “They just kept touching noses as if to say, ‘OK, we’re together. Everything’s OK.’”
The two are currently in a foster home together while they search for a family. “I want to find them a forever home together,” Hall said. “I’m not going to separate these two.”
