I had tears in my eyes the whole way through this. It really was a beautiful rescue. Such a happy dog at the end:

    • Constance

      I thought that too. Levin would love this one.

      Michael Savage, too. He’d love this.

    Angels do indeed walk among us. Thank you God, for refreshing my faith when it seems to sag.

    Yeah, made me cry when I first saw it a few weeks ago. Great story! Now we just need that attitude towards unborn children! Great post Rightscoop!

      Hi Cory,

      WELCOME to the SCOOP!

      Please pass it around — to nice people only though

      Ciao!

  • SpikeT

    Oh Scoop. A parable for the times WE are in.

    Mercy, what a touching piece.

  • Spartan4Palin

    Scoop, you’re the best.

    Thanks for making me cry and smile at the same time!!

    For people who abuse or abandon these animals

    A special place in hell for them —-

    For the RESCUERS – a special place in Heaven

    Have you lost a special friend ? - There is hope >>

    Gotta go now !

  • tvlgds

    Ok, I’m a blubbering puddle! There are so many amazing rescue stories out there. I thank GOD for the people who give selflessly to these critters. I agree there’s a special place in hell for those who abuse and neglect animals.

  • gothicreader

    No matter how you talk to them and sometimes how you treat them, they will always be your best friend.

    Your “best” friend doesn’t care if you have money, how you live, what the color of your skin is, or what language you speak. They will always be there for you and forgive you.

    A true reminder that we can all learn from our four legged friends.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Brilliant! Thanks for sharing that reflection. I’ve got four cats & three dogs, and I love ‘em all the same!

      • tvlgds

        I’ve got 4 rescued cats -3 of them rescued from my vets’ office that their employees rescued off the streets. They know I’m a sucker and a good mommy because they pretty much got my whole paychecks when my other 2 were sick (they were also rescues) Unfortunately, I did lose them both. The 4th one I rescued from a family of ferals that hung out at a friends’ house.

        • wodiej

          my best friend is the cat lady. Has 5 or 6-all strays that wandered by her house. I told her-they knew who the cat person was in the neighborhood.

          • tvlgds

            I have to fight myself not to be that person. I’d love to save them all, but I know that I can’t and I’ve seen too many hoarder stories where the humans and animals end up living in very unhealthy conditions. I have my hands full with 4. My dad swears they have a “sucker” sign on their house since they also have adopted 3 strays that wandered over.

            • wodiej

              I know, that’s sad too. Each person can only do so much. Sucker…yep, they seem to know. God bless you and your family for having such love for these creatures that are totally dependent on us.

              • tvlgds

                My sisters are all the same way too. One is a vet tech and she not only has cats and dogs, but has a squirrel that’s missing a foot, so she won’t release it…they load up 7 cats, dogs, birds, and a handicapped squirrel in a cage, every time they have to evacuate for hurricanes. Between the 4 of us and my folks, we could almost open a zoo! LOL!

  • stinkprogress

    I couldn’t help but notice all of the terrific inspiring ART, thank god for Nancy Pelosi and Obama care, without them both these Artist’s would be cheated out of such brilliance

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Is that feces art you’re referring to?

  • Bunjy

    Made me cry and smile all at once. Thanks for sharing it with us. I’m going to donate to the organization so they can continue with their good works.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQI5D66OXO7X2FE4NVCZC7BAMA Joe

      Hi bunjy,

      WELCOME to the SCOOP!

      Please pass it around — to nice people only though

      Ciao!

      • Bunjy

        Thanks! Already done.

  • WordsFailMe

    Gratitude, something we rarely see in humans.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Ain’t that the truth?

  • tvlgds

    Here’s oneI’ve been following for months

      You guys are killing me today !

      For the RESCUERS – a special place in Heaven

    • Nukeman60

      Dang, the condensation on my glasses is bad today. I’m going to have to adjust the furnace humidifier. :)

      • GreenBeretWay

        This has my mascara running down my face (haha)

      • Pyrran

        Yeah, I musta been chopping onions.
        Or maybe it was the dust.

        • tvlgds

          at my house it would be cat hair! LOL!

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Bless these souls and everything they might do in life. They’re angels on Earth, and, yes, there is such a thing.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6KRHXVK5ZCSWJ5GJQ5Z6GIJICA Dax

    Wow! Great touching story. Im sure many people will go rescue a dog thanks to this.

  • GreenBeretWay

    Seen some pretty vile stuff in my life and most of it never had a happy ending,glad this story ended with Princess Fiona rescued and safe.Dr Chang the vet that restored her vision(Probably free or low cost) is also a hero in my book.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donald-Arey-III/100001713622116 Donald Arey III

    Dammit Scoop! I almost cannot watch these videos.

    Dogs, so loving, trusting, and forgiving that it breaks my heart to see one that is suffering so much. I teared up after the eye surgery part when she started to wag her tail and her body language changed dramatically. She looked like she forgot about her suffering and just became a happy puppy.

    • p m

      Yes – that wagging tail, and her jumping up to play near the end, so bouncy. Am ending this around.
      Thanks for this RS and to posters who’ve added more.

  • poljunkie

    Dogs are the best! I dont know how we would get thru the day without their unwavering friendship and loyality.

    Ours have us totally trained.

  • Amy

    Oh, now I really have the baby puppy bug. I think it’s time to rescue another mutt. :-)

    • MiketheMarine

      My parents just got a Golden Doodle. cute dog.

      • Amy

        Those are cute dogs :-) Our neighbors have a Labradoodle whose a sweetie.

        We have only one now. A lab mix who is as lazy as the day is long – and according to my youngest son, lonely. LOL

    This link is to a story showing that Israel has withdrawn from the UN human rights council. This could be the opening move in WWIII.

    • WordsFailMe

      Wonder when the FOX bobble head will start babbling this story.

      Thanks Mike

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E4C65QOIQ4XH67F6MEHWTXGODY Alan

    God Bless the people that rescued this dog.

    it now has a full life thanks to people who care.

  • JRD1

    Thank you scoop. Just sent a donation to make up for that idiot who put his dog on the roof of his car.

    • MiketheMarine

      I remember that story. What was that pinheads name again? Wasn’t he an aspiring actor or something ? Oh, wait, I think I know who it was.

      • Nukeman60

        I know one thing. He is no Ronald Reagan.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MJGP4QXZ5PRW2MFA5E25CV2WNU rosalie

    Thanks for that heartwarming vid. I couldn’t get through it without tears, but they were happy tears.

  • veek46

    I dare anyone to watch this video and not cry. I dare you!!

    • DebbyX

      IMPOSSIBLE!!

  • Constance

    Oh geez. I’m sobbing. God bless people like this. God bless all of those poor animals who are never saved. I will be crying for awhile today…

  • DebbyX

    Oh my God, I can’t even see thru the tears. Heartbreaking and happy all at the same time. Be right back, need kleenex.

  • Lady_Penguin

    You can’t get through the video without tearing up. Donated and tweeted.

  • tvlgds

    Another one I’ve followed for mos. This is a bait dog who was rescued. He’s doing very well, but still has medical issues.

    Thank you for the wonderful story. It’s almost more than I can bear to even watch things like this-I am such a dog lover and I just cannot stand to see animals mistreated. Fiona was rescued by angels.

    I took in a little Shih Tzu once. My brother found her wandering the streets and was going to take her to the pound. She was all matted up and going blind also. Her teeth were almost worn down to the gums. I took her in, cleaned her up, took her to the vet and had her a few years before she died of cancer. Initially I was trying to find her a home and my best friend got a good chuckle out of that. She said that dog won’t ever leave your house…she knows me well. I’ve adopted a few Yorkies from rescues too. They all have some kind of problem that’s why they get dumped. Nothing is perfect in life. It’s best we learn to accept imperfection in order to learn the perfection of God’s love.

  • Linky1

    OK, Scoop, you know where to hit me. All of my dogs have been rescues – to see something as heartwarming as this….well,…sniff, sniff, sniff. Gotta go hug my dog.

  • aZjimbo

    Freaking awesome.

  • kong1967

    Wow, that was touching and almost made a grown man cry here.

    Glad to see that PETA didn’t find her. She’d be dead for sure.

  • NCHokie02

    Off the subject of the dog but an interesting article from the daily caller on the Middle East and how we are seen.

  • Lee0521

    I worked for an animal rescue organization for 5 years and I saw some pretty horrible things. The faces of all those animals still haunt me. My own cat is a rescue from the street. He was two months old when I found him lying in the dirt, all covered with fleas and ticks. Twelve years later, he is a strapping 15 lbs and my best friend.

  • B-Funk

    You know, on this blog we focus on the negative side of human nature- most of which is politics. I have to remember that there’s so much more of human nature that is good. Thanks for the video Scoop!

    WOW, my eyes are leaking.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jaspersilvis Jasper Silvis

      Nice Grinch reference! :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/jaspersilvis Jasper Silvis

    Thank God PETA did not find her first, or she would have been “lovingly euthanized”.

    This post solidified my next place in life as far as my volition goes. I’m recently laid off from my job as IT support, but I feel like going back to my days now as a certified Animal Cruelty Investigator. Thanks, Scoop.. not everybody can do it, but somebody has to. And if it must be me, then LET it be me.
