Fiona, the heartbreaking Poodle-looking dog rescued from a trash pile by the Los Angeles-based group Hope for Paws, has made national news. Her online video went viral—and for good reason. Watching this tiny, blind dog (living in literal filth) transformed into a bouncy, beloved pet with vision restored in one eye is heartwarming to say the least.
Fiona's story will be shown on ABC's World News with Diane Sawyer tonight, March 27, at 6:30 p.m. local time on Channel 7. It's also been making waves across the globe through media outlets such as People Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail and CNN. To see what all of this is about, watch the video. Yes, it's difficult to see, but it ends on such a high note.
Hope for Paws founders Audrey and Eldad Hagar seem to have a way with lost creatures. Another one of their "famous" rescues involved Edie, rescued hours before euthanasia last year. The couple created Hope for Paws to help save animals in this country from neglect and abuse. Their Facebook pages are followed by thousands upon thousands of animal lovers across the world.
