Lihle the rescue got the chance to meet a pack of Wild Dog that stumbled onto her property line and took the opportunity to sniff her out.
KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa – The Endangered Wildlife Trust recently shared a video of a rescue dog meeting her wild counterparts, the Wild Dog.
Their Wild Dog expert, Cole du Plessis lives in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park with his rescue Lihle. She had the opportunity to encounter her wild cousins through the fence of his property. Cole stayed with her the entire time, keeping her calm as the Wild Dogs sniffed her out.
“She received a visit from a very curious pack of Wild Dogs, who looked quite keen to start a conversation! This is the first time Cole has had the pack come right into his property, but Lihle has been trained to remain calm during any wild animal encounters, and you can see her checking for Cole’s approval during this encounter. We think she’s a very good girl indeed!”
Lihle was adopted from the Project Dog Durban, South Africa rescue organisation. The Endangered Wildlife Trust shared what her name means, saying it means to have a beautiful personality. They confirmed this is a very fitting name for the sweet rescue.
Cole describes her as his ultimate bush companion and his rock in the sometimes unrelenting world of conservation. They even shared a beautiful image of the pair soaking up some evening sunshine.
Take a look at her incredible encounter below.
