In an industrial district of Redlands, California, a matted little dog suffered alone for more than a year. Even though others had tried to capture her, the tiny terrier would hide under trailers and cross busy roads – somehow her luck held out as she avoided being struck by vehicles.
On Monday, a worried Good Samaritan spotted the dog sitting in the construction area and cried out for help with rescue group Dream Fetchers Rescue and Faith Easdale.
And then her transformation began. Dreadlocks were cut away and mats untangled. She was bathed and the ticks and fleas floated away in the filthy bath water. Who knew her coat is actually white? She was so relieved.
And another life has been saved.
