Jared Twedell, a native of Oregon, was on his way to the neighborhood recycling facility early on Sunday when he observed something peculiar.
Twedell stated, “There are railroad tracks next to the gate, and out of the corner of my eye, I spotted this flicker of movement.” “I initially believed a deer was lying on the tracks.”
Twedell rolled down his window and whistled at the animal, hoping to get it to move off the rails. Twedell knew it was a dog when a set of ears perked up.

However, he was bound to the tracks.
I entered a panic mode, Twedell admitted. The rope pulled him back as he attempted to walk toward the car.
At least three trains pass through that location every day, and Twedell had no idea how much time he had left. Twedell pulled over to the side and jumped out.
He was clearly terrified, Twedell recalled. “I was concerned about whether he would permit me to approach him. Hey little buddy, I replied as I stroked my calf. His tail has just begun to wag. I was confident I could approach him at that point.”
The dog’s safe untying and transportation into his car were Twedell’s only current priorities. The young dog was fatigued from being outside in the hot weather, and it was obvious that someone had left him there on purpose.
According to Twedell, “the rope was tied in a figure eight, like one would use to tie a boat to a dock.” Someone acted maliciously when they committed this. “Simply put, I felt sick.”
Twedell immediately realized that he would be taking the puppy home, so he loaded him into his car and started driving. He initially gave the puppy the name Train, but his family decided that Samson would be a better choice.

When they returned home, Twedell gave Samson a wash and cleaned the burrs from his fur. Samson had a small cut on his neck, but otherwise seemed to be in good health. He wasn’t slender and didn’t have long nails.
Even better, Samson got along well with the family’s other pets, which included a huge Flemish rabbit, cats, and two other rescue canines.

The dogs have been getting along superbly, according to Twedell. Since I got Samson home, all they have done is play.
Samson, despite his size, is only a few months old and is anticipated to get significantly bigger.
He is undoubtedly large and rambunctious, according to Twedell. “I’m sure someone got him thinking they’d get a tiny puppy and didn’t anticipate him to be 60 pounds at 6 months. He’s still so young, yet there was no shade outside and the temperature was over 100. Even if there hadn’t been a train, I doubt he would have made it there.
Samson is currently being fostered by Twedell, but it’s already very likely that he’ll end up living with the family permanently.
Samson seems to have all the things.
After being returned home, Samson licked Jared Twedell’s hand.
Twedell said, “He’s a really great dog. Someone was keeping an eye on this tiny guy.”
