In this video, the Hope For Paws team got a call about a homeless dog living in a hospital parking lot. We see a lone member of the team try to find the dog at night, after his attempts during the day were unsuccessful.

And sure enough, he found the dog there at night.

Very carefully, the leash was put on the dog, but she wasn’t accepting it without a fight.

The dog ran around frantically, trying to escape; one can imagine what the dog has seen from living on the streets, so it’s understandable why she would be so skittish.

But eventually, she calmed down, and warmed up to the rescuer.

Once the dog was taken in, she got a bath, and that was all it took for her to look like a new dog.

She was named Oakley, and it wasn’t long before she turned from a shy and frightened dog into the complete opposite.
