This was Miley just one month ago on Nov. 15, 2013.

She was once someone’s companion, but for reasons unknown, her guardian(s) abandoned her.

Hearing this, we can rant and rave about how we’re upset with humanity and how people always let us down, but that would do a great disservice to dogs like Miley and the amazing individuals behind their rescue, care and recovery.

As Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice,” and arguably, it bends toward kindness, as well.

It was on Nov. 15 that Eldad Hager, co-founder of Santa Monica, Cali. rescue group Hope for Paws, came to pick up Miley from her makeshift “home” — a trash pile in a vacant Los Angeles lot. The group received a tip from a local resident who reported that Miley had been living there and fighting to survive for several months.

When Hager arrived at the scene, he was stunned at what he saw. He told The Huffington Post that the place looked as if it had been “struck by a tsunami.”

Miley’s condition was just as bad. Hager stated that her physical deterioration was “definitely one of the worse cases” he had ever seen.

After about an hour or so of comforting Miley, Hager finally gained her trust and was able to drive her to Los Angeles’ Veterinary Care Center for immediate treatment. Once there, vets discovered she suffered from mange, parasites, bacterial infections and malnutrition. Amazingly, even with these painful conditions, she still managed to make it through each day living at the trash heap, clearly showing her remarkable will to live.

Today, Miley is doing much better, and is currently up for adoption at The Fuzzy Pet Foundation.

TFPF reports on Facebook that adoption inquires have been pouring in for her from all over the U.S. and even as far away as the U.K. With so much interest, Miley will certainly have a forever home in no time, and we look forward to seeing her happy soon, and enjoying life with her new family.

In the mean time, watch Miley’s amazing rescue and transformation below — its a definite must-see and includes footage of her budding friendship with adorable Chihuahua Frankie, who was recently rescued from a drain pipe. (Adoption inquires for Frankie can be made through The Forgotten Dog rescue.)

why does a homeless dog get more attention than a homeless person? or more attention than the inhumane ways "food" animals are treated? I love dogs, don't get me wrong...but I also love every other being on this planet...it's time to start caring about ALL of us!

because a homeless person has the chance to change their ways where as a dog or any other animal can\'t

I would never split them up. They'd have to be adopted together with the understanding that they live out their entire lives together. <3
