Theo was terrified when he was rescued but was transformed into a cute and happy dog once again

Eldad Hagar, from Hope for Paws, and Annie Hart were in Compton when they noticed a dog hiding under a garbage trailer who appeared severely neglected. Neighbors said the dog’s owners had moved a year ago and left the dog behind.

He was terrified of human contact, and it took Hagar awhile to catch him.

I will warn you that the beginning of the video is heartbreaking and difficult to watch. However, the transformation – both physically and in spirit – is truly amazing.

Theo, as he was named at the rescue, went on to a foster home through The Mutt Scouts. There, he danced and played with pit mixes and his spirit returned.

    So sickening that people will leave behind a pet like that to fend for themselves. Especially one so small. What a bunch of shitty neighbors too for not helping this poor little soul!
