The following story and video is about the most touching story I have ever heard about and it is about Fiona, and how this Blind Homeless Poodle Mix Dog Gets Rescued by some very compassionate and caring animal rescue workers. The dog was homeless and living on the street in a pile of trash, basically. It was totally blind and scared. When the workers tried to comfort the dog, she urinated out of fear and just sat scared and afraid, unable to see what was going on around her.
Here is an excerpt from the original story about how this Blind Homeless Poodle Mix Dog Gets Rescued and how this poor little poodle-like dog living on the street made it’s transformation to a loving and trusting dog.
If you’ve recently encountered (and cried over) a video of a pup named Fiona, you’re not alone. More than 1 million people have watched the clip — which follows Fiona’s transformation from a squalid, blind street dog to a spiffy, happy fluffball with partially restored eyesight — since it made its debut online a week ago.
We tracked down the folks who rescued Fiona, and posted the video, to find out about her skyrocketing fame thanks to the freaky powers of social media and the Internet.
Fiona was actually rescued more than a year ago by Eldad and Audrey Hagar, a married couple who run a non-profit organization called Hope for Paws out of their Los Angeles apartment. The Hagars operate their rescue organization on a shoe-string budget; Eldad, 36, has grown fond of posting YouTube videos of their often-dramatic street rescues when time permits.
Fiona’s saga was originally conveyed in two separate videos last year. The first one showed her being saved from the streets, shaved, bathed and freed of a terrible flea infestation. That video made a plea for donations to help pay for Fiona’s medical care. The second follow-up video showed footage of Fiona undergoing surgery, being able to see again for the first time, playing happily and snuggling with the Southern California couple who adopted her.
Watch the video below about this amazing and heart warming story of this brave little dog and her journey from homelessness to adoption and how her sight was restored in one eye.
