If there’s a homeless dog in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Hope for Paws of course! That’s exactly what a compassionate local did when they found a small poodle who had been living on the streets. Though they had been feeding her, they knew she deserved better so they made the all-important call to Hope for Paws.

As Loreta and Eldad neared the location they immediately saw the poodle rummaging around and chasing birds. Loreta made friends by offering her food and led her away from the noisy street to a safer area. Eldad attempted to block off the area using the plastic fencing, but this girl was way too smart to fall for this trick. The poodle now named Coco, wasn’t about to make it easy – she twisted and turned in an attempt to free herself but after a few moments of struggling, she finally gave in and relaxed enough to realize she was in good hands.

Coco was transported to the vet and they discovered she had a cut on her neck underneath the matted fur that covered her body. After treatment, pain medication, and a new haircut, Coco turned into a happy, sweet, and playful girl. Her days of loneliness and uncertainty were finally over. All Coco needs now is a forever home, could it be yours? To inquire about adopting her, go to Smooch Pooch Rescue’s website.

Help Hope for Paws continue their life-saving work by making a donation today and be sure to SHARE Coco’s happy ending with your friends and family!

It is wonderful to see help for these pets that owners don\'t care about, but Is there a reason for the blaring music or was it supposed to calm the dog down?

What a beautiful sweet dog! Thank you for helping her and all the others. These videos are wonderful but heartbreaking when you think of all the animals that aren\'t located and rescued. God bless them all and all the people at Hope for Paws.

I don\'t know, but that "poodle" sure looks like a Bichon Frise!

Looks like a Bichon to me as well. In fact our Bichon passed away this past year at 15 years old, and his name was Coco as well. Very ironic. Where is this dog located?
