While driving along a remote road near Noble, Oklahoma, a woman named Alysse Matlock caught sight of something fluffy ambling along the pavement.

Drawing nearer, she discerned it was a miniature Australian Shepherd.

Concerned for the dog’s safety, she halted her car and attempted to coax it into safety. However, the pup, unable to grasp her benevolent intentions, grew fearful and darted away.

Thankfully, Alysse managed to capture a photo before the dog vanished and later shared it on Facebook, seeking assistance from the community.

To her relief, others had encountered the furry wanderer too!

After posting the photo of the pup, her comment section got flooded with replies, as others wrote about seeing the exact same dog patrolling the neighborhood.

However, nobody knew where she came from.

A few days later, the pup, now named Journey, was spotted in the middle of Noble, 10 miles from where Alysse initially met her.

Since colder days were coming, many of the town’s animal lovers were concerned for Journey’s safety, knowing that she needed shelter to survive.

Another concern was raised when somebody noticed that her belly was distended, which meant that this pup was heavily pregnant and the pups were coming soon!

After hearing this information, Alysse went out to look for the pup; this time, determined to get her somewhere safe.

After finally locating her, Alysse ended up spending three hours trying to convince Journey to trust her. But, as 1 a.m. rolled around, and Journey still wouldn’t give in, Alysse was forced to come back another day.

After returning the very next day, Alysse noticed somebody peeking behind a large piece of trash. Upon further inspection, she realized that it was Journey, who found a makeshift shelter from the cold.

“She’d spent the night curled up in a busted recliner by the side of the highway,” Alysse wrote in a video.

Yet again, Alysse tried to get her into the car, but Journey just wouldn’t comply.

Finally, Alysse and a couple of the town members managed to spot Journey at the top of a hill, which gave them an idea.

With a bit of teamwork and a lot of hotdogs, the rescue team successfully contained the little rascal and got her into the car.

“It was such a relief when she was finally caught. All of us strangers that had stopped on the side of the road that morning started hugging,” Alysse told The Dodo.

As Alysse finally had the pup in her care, she immediately took her to the vet who confirmed that this soon-to-be-mama was going to give birth in the next five to seven days.

However, the very next morning, Alysse woke up to some strange squeaking sounds.

Two little pups were right next to Journey and their other four siblings arrived soon after. Journey became a mom to an adorable and healthy litter.
