It’s heartbreaking to find animals that are malnourished or left to fend for themselves. The rescuers at Hope for Paws are terrific at finding and saving dogs just like when they saved a severely matted poodle and changed her life.
This time, they received a call about Cowboy, a Blue Heeler that was living under a dumpster for over 11 months. The Blue Heeler dog was abandoned in Compton, California but thankfully, a good samaritan would leave food and water nearly every day. She later called Hope for Paws when she saw one of their dog rescue videos online. When they found Cowboy the Blue Heeler dog, they coaxed him with burgers and were able to bring him to a shelter to get a much-deserved bath and some tender loving care.
