You may not know this, but dogs notice specific things about humans that people are unaware of. When a dog senses a good person with good intentions, they warm up quickly to them. The classic, telltale tail wag indicates an extremely happy pup who feels safe around someone.

When a dog meets their soul person, they form a special, mutual connection with them. This was the case for a stray pup who wouldn’t come out of hiding for anyone, until a little girl came its way.

The Fearful Fur Baby Hiding From the World

Like humans, our furry stray friends have a personality, and how they interact can affect how they find their way home when lost. You’ll likely find lost pups hiding in marshy areas, bushes, parks, etc.

Just recently, a stray dog had been hiding in the backyard of a little girl’s grandparents. Despite all efforts made by the grandparents to get it out of hiding, the stray dog wouldn’t come out. 

The Pup Wouldn’t Let Anyone Approach

The sweet stray dog was too afraid to come out of hiding. The nice grandparents would feed her, which made her stick around. But no matter how much they tried to entice her, she wouldn’t let anyone get too close.

Stray dogs have often been abused or neglected by their previous owners, which can make them afraid and cautious about any human who approaches them. So they may not trust or feel very safe around humans.

The Sweet Little Girl Who Came Along

On this life-changing day for the pup, a sweet little girl and her parents visited her grandparents. The grandparents told them about the stray pup, and they decided to try to get the pup out.

The parents first approached it, but the dog was too scared and instead retreated back in fear. The dog didn’t strike them as a dangerous or mal-tempered, but rather merely sad. So they felt it was safe for their daughter to give it a try.

Our Furry Friends are Smitten With Children

Dogs are adaptable creatures that can bond with humans, including babies. Naturally, both dogs and babies have a common desire for a playmate to roll in the dirt and create fond memories with.

They are smitten by these little humans who they can form strong connections with. Another interesting fact is that they can sense a child  is vulnerable and harmless. So it wouldn’t be unusual if this stray pup were to be smitten by this little girl.

Coming Up With a Name

When they brought the dog home, the little girl didn’t hesitate to make her feel welcome. She named her furry friend “Magic.” They wouldn’t leave each other’s side, going on several walks to the park together.

In the bid to create a new life for the dog, the little girl’s parents got it scanned and checked at the vet for any medical issues and also to confirm her age.

Finally United With Her Soul Person

The vet double-checked and confirmed that the dog was definitely not chipped and appeared not older than six months. But they didn’t stop there. They believed the dog was lost and probably had a devastated owner looking for her.

So, they searched everywhere to see if she was truly lost, but they came up with nothing. Perhaps, the puppy was just destined to be there, united with her soul person.

Goodbye Hugs and Kisses

Magic and her sweet little owner shared a bond that would make some adult dog owners jealous. They played on the playground together, and even while her owner slept, Magic would remain on her bed tucked in with her.
