This homeless dog was found living in a pile of trash. She accepted help from her rescuers, and now one year later, look at her amazing transformation!
Hope for Paws is a rescue based in Los Angeles that is dedicated to rescuing animals living and suffering on the streets. They often post videos of their rescue and the animal’s transformation, which tend to be equally heartbreaking and inspiring.
One dog in particular, Miley, was found on a trash pile after Hope for Paws received an urgent call about her living situation. She had reportedly been living there for several months, scavenging what little food she could find and developing irritating skin infections and parasites.
Eldad Hagar, the founder of the organization, said this about stray dogs:
“Many people don’t realize how exhausting it is to be a stray dog,” Hagar says. “You’re always on alert because you don’t know who is gonna come behind you or who is gonna attack you or who is going to be not kind to you.”
In an ideal world, animals would be treated kindly, or at least left alone by those who don’t like them. However, there are many people out there that not only wish harm on dogs and other animals, but they act on these wishes and pose a threat to stray dogs with no human or shelter to protect them.
Fortunately for Miley, someone finally called to alert Hope for Paws of her dire situation rather than allowing her to continue dying on the trash pile. When Hagar located Miley in the trash, he could tell from far away that she had mange because of the patchy condition of her fur and skin.
After bringing Miley to the vet, they determined she had mange, parasites, bacterial infections and was suffering from malnutrition. With medicated baths and lots of love, Miley began the slow road to recovery.
A few weeks after her rescue, another rescue who was found living in a drain pipe under a busy freeway was brought in. He was named Frankie and was very fearful, but Miley took him under her wing and the two quickly became close friends.
Watch the video below to see what Miley looks like now in her forever home and her sweet moments with Frankie, the chihuahua.
