People were scared of her because she looks like a wolf. Her transformation will take you to other lands!
Hope For Paws has rescued hundreds of dogs from the cruel streets of Los Angeles. What makes this rescue different from all the others will surely surprise you.
Eldad Hagar and his dream team head over to a neighborhood in South Central. At first view, they see a pup who needs help and a new life. But as they got closer to the dog, they realized that she wasn’t really a dog at all, not entirely.
From Eldad’s own Flickr account, and from the rescue video below, we collected the highlights of this rare and wonderful day, using Eldad’s own words and photos.
“Usually we rescue dogs, but this time, I am pretty sure that we rescued a wolf-hybrid!!”
“Julia had an old rope tied to her which indicates to me that someone owned and neglected her to a criminal level… this poor girl was so swollen from infections, she was bleeding, pus was oozing from everywhere, and it’s hard to see because of this coat, but she is just skin and bones.”
“Lisa offered treats and worked slowly to gain Julia’s trust.”
“Even though Julia was so skinny and starved, she took food so gently.”
Eldad and Lisa felt it was time to try to use the lucky red leash to convince Julia into their car. Julia needed immediate medical attention and each passing time was more dangerous for her and caused her pain
“Julia was a little unsure about hopping into a car, so we had to encourage her and explain to her that things are about to get AMAZINGLY BETTER ? “
Once Julia arrived at the clinic, she was tested for Demodectic Mange. The results were positive. Eldad and his team knew it would be a tough road for Julia but totally worth it.
“Julia’s paws were so swollen, her nails were so long… so much discomfort, but it was all about to change.”
“As the water broke down the scabs, Julia started bleeding from everywhere. This is a necessary step… a medicated bath.”
After Julia’s bath, she rested her head on Lisa. She was so happy that it was finally over. With this movement, it was apparent that Julia’s rescuers had finally gained her trust.
After a week of medical treatment, Julia was ready for a new home. Finally, she could live the life she had always wanted and deserved. Her true colors showed, her tail learned to wag. And oh, all those sweet smiles… they just wouldn’t stop coming!
The most amazing part of the story is that Julia found her forever home. She will NEVER have to worry about food or being alone on the streets ever again! Her rescue is truly heart-warming to watch (see the video below!). Thank you, Hope For Paws for all that you continue to do for dogs in need!
