Eldad Hagar of the nonprofit organization Hope For Paws left immediately after receiving an urgent text message about a sick dog abandoned in front of an auto repair shop. He then drove from Los Angeles to Compton to rescue the dog.
When he arrived, he met the shop owner, who informed him that his niece frequently watches Hope For Paws’ rescue films and that she was the one who sent the text message.
As it turned out, the dog showed up in the neighborhood a few days ago. It walked around until it decided to seek shelter in the repair shop. And although the owner was more than willing to let it stay, he was unable to offer the necessary medical treatment. Therefore, his niece volunteered to contact the group for assistance.
The dog looked dreadful and was obviously ill. However, despite its state, it enthusiastically welcomed the rescuer upon his arrival. The instant it spotted Eldad, it stood up, wagged its tail, and greeted him.
The rescuer thanked the shop’s owner before carrying the dog to his vehicle. He also requested that his thanks be extended to his niece for doing the right thing.
Eldad named the dog Aoki. Aoki was scanned for a microchip at the veterinarian’s clinic, but he did not have one. In addition, a thorough examination indicated that he suffered from Demodectic mange. If he had not been saved in time, his health would have worsened considerably more quickly.
Aoki began to recover after rounds of antibiotics, multiple medicinal baths, and lots of love. He felt and appeared significantly better than when he originally arrived at his foster home. His wounds healed, and his lustrous black coat regrew.
Soon thereafter, Aoki began his search for a new family, and with the assistance of his friends from the rescue group, he received the greatest gift he could have ever wished for. Just before Christmas, his adoptive family welcomed him into their house.
The members of Aoki’s new family adore him, and he surely feels the same way about them. He loves his parents, but he is most especially pleased with his human sibling.
