She was relinquished, half-visually impaired and starving to death; yet because of the commitment of a gathering of good Samaritans, one fearless pit bull is motivating another opportunity to live and love. In the video above, look as Eldad Hagar, prime supporter of creature save association Hope for Paws, and a group of aides protect Savannah, an excellent pit bull, from a recreation center in the Los Angeles region. “Individuals will in general desert their creatures [in that park],” Hagar told The Huffington Post in an email this week.
“It’s a truly wild region, numerous coyotes are dependably near, and it’s only an appalling thing that individuals do figuring the canines can some way or another get by without anyone else.” Savannah, said Hagar, was in a terrible state when he found her. One of her eyes was badly injured, she had wounds on her body and she was clearly starving.
“Once I approached the bushes where she was hiding, I realized that she had no more fight in her. She was so hungry, so tired,” Hagar wrote. “The process of starvation is horrible. The body first breaks down all the fat for energy, then muscles, then internal organs… it’s a slow and very painful death.”The rescue took more than two hours, but finally, Hagar was able to coax the pooch out of her hiding place and into his arms. Savannah was whisked to the vet, where she soon underwent surgery to remove her left eye and a large tumor in one of her ears. After the surgeries, her “sweet spirit came alive,” Hagar wrote in the clip.
