Fiona the Poodle was named Dog of the Year by ASPCA

Fiona the Poodle was named Dog of the Year by ASPCA.  “Fiona” was the little white poodle that was rescued earlier this year from a trash heap in South L.A. and was totally blind, hungry and scared.  Rescue workers discovered this poodle and the incredibly touching video was made to document the events of that day.  You can see our original post about Fiona’s rescue here.

Thanks to the many people who shared the story, word of this amazing rescue and of the difficult road ahead for this scared and blind little poodle traveled all of the web quickly.  This made it possible for public awareness to spread and Fiona got the help she needed from many donations to help fund the surgery needed to restore the sight in one eye.

Take a look at the follow up video about Fional, the amazing and resilient little poodle who would not give up.  This story brings a tear of joy to my heart and I am happy to be able to share it with our readers here.



There are many stories similar to that of Fiona but I am very happy that Fiona the Poodle was named Dog of the Year by ASPCA.  She deserves the attention and the recognition.  I wish that dogs would never, again, end up in some trash heap, abandoned and left to die.  But fortunately, for many, they are rescued and are shown the kind of love that they deserve.

If this story touched your heart, please SHARE and LIKE this post and spread it around so others can enjoy it, as well.  As always, thank you for reading!

    I will glady take Fiona if she is still without a forever home. I love dogs and I have had three Poodles! The first two died of old age and now I have Patty (a red toy) and Sunny (a yellow Lab). Sunny has always been very gentle and loving with Patty but she is 12 years old and I’m afraid of what Patty will do when it’s time for her to go to Heaven. Fiona was so cute and playful that I fell in love with her right away <3 I have a fenced in yard and Patty loves other dogs, as does Sunny! Fiona would have a blast here in Huntington, West Virginia and she would be the owner of a totally devoted dog lover!

      Jeanne, that is so sweet and loving of you. I would also jump sky high at the chance of adopting sweet little Fiona. I cried like a child, when I first saw the original video of her touching story. I have two cats and Lucy, our star mini poodle, but there’s plenty of room for one more here.
      I don’t know who to contact for adopting Fiona, but if I find out, I will post it on this site, for sure.
      Thanks for your comments and keep reading.

    I found my toy poodle Dusty when he was 4 months old underneath my car. He was in very poor health and needed alot of TLC. I thank God for him everyday because he does bring us alot of job. Today he is 8 years old and a very spoiled lovable happy poodle.
