An undeniably cute, albeit somewhat "scruffy" dog, was taken in at the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility on Feb. 27.
Though the small dog was facing certain trauma from the frightening situation, she still managed to "put on a smile" when a volunteer took her photo - hope was easy to see in her beautiful eyes.
Today, just a few days after her story was published, the one-time stray is free from the animal control facility, saved by the rescue agency, Hand In Paw.
Following her release from the facility on Thursday, the once nameless dog was given the name "Sky Primrose," and she was treated to a much needed grooming session, and a trip to the veterinarian.
Sky Primrose is suffering from an upper respiratory infection and has a leg injury, but she is being treated and she should make a full recovery.
