In this video, Hope For Paws looked to rescue a dog in need, and this one would be anything but easy to take in.

The poor pup was found shivering, and was terrified of her potential rescuer.

The attempts to get close to the dog were met with loud barks, and when the leash was presented, she attacked it furiously.

Even after the leash was on, the dog wouldn’t accept any kind of affection. It took awhile before she would fully accept being even lightly pet.

Even though he was still weary of her, the rescuer was able to put her on his lap, without any resistance. It took a lot of effort, but he was able to make a friend out of the dog.

The dog was named Holly, and we see that she didn’t have a problem making any new friends once she was taken in—it was a complete 180 from the start of the video.
