Animal rescuers know that rescues can either have good or bad outcomes, and some cases they encounter bring out their absolute worst fears. When this poor thing, curled up in an old tire in Mexico, was found, though, it was far from certain how things would end up.
A man was driving through the outskirts of Puerto Peñasco when he noticed something moving inside the tire on the side of a dusty road. Curious, he stopped to take a closer look, and he was horrified by what he saw.
Inside was a sickly-looking dog with horribly matted fur. He immediately set about to rescue the animal and grabbed his phone.

“She was in terrible condition,” said Christi Camblor, founder of the non-profit that responded. “She was a longer coated dog, and she was just matted to the core. They had to shave her down, and when they did she was just riddled with fleas and ticks.”
The dog, named Yoko, responded well to the treatment they provided her, and miraculously, after a few days, she was ready to go home with one of her rescuers, Claudia and will remain in her hands while they wait for her to be adopted into a loving forever home.
