An injured pit bull, who chose a Glendale, Ohio, nativity scene for his own sanctuary, has been rescued, reported CBS 5 News.
The dog, dubbed "Gabriel," was found on Friday morning, curled up and resting in the hay where he appeared to be an actual part of the peaceful scene.
Today, Gabriel is in the care of the rescue agency, Cincinnati Pit Crew, who shared the following statement shortly after Gabriel's rescue:
Tonight, our hearts are very full. Rescue isn't easy work, but it's always rewarding at the end of the day. Some very special people came upon this today and through networking with various rescues, CPC was able to help find a safe place for Gabriel and start the process of finding him a loving family. Thank you to all those involved with today's special rescue - The Village of Glendale, All Dogs, and Dream House Rescue and to Noah's Ark West Chester!
The condition of Gabriel's body suggests that his life has been hard, but he is in good hands today. Since his discovery, he has been checked out and treated by a veterinarian and he is already recovering in a foster home.
