A concerned woman named Esmeralda Alvarez sought the help of non-profit animal rescue Hope for Paws regarding a little dog that had been hit by a car. Eldad Hagar, the founder of said organization, found the canine hiding underneath a vehicle, nursing her broken leg.
He saw right away that she was in pain because of her badly fractured limb. Her injury also caused her to lash out at Eldad, baring her fangs at him when he tried to come near.
With nothing on the mutt’s mind but pain, fear, and hunger, all she could think of was fleeing and hiding from humans.
Eldad spent some time trying to get the pooch, whom he named Arya after viewers’ suggestions, to trust him. First, he let her sniff the gentle snare he wanted to use to pull her out from underneath the car.
When that did not work, and Arya showed signs of getting ready to run away, the rescuer got a collapsible plastic fence out of his car and put it around the vehicle under which the canine was hiding.
That way, he could take his time earning Arya’s trust without fearing she would escape. Eventually, Eldad succeeded in putting his famous red Lucky Leash around the little mutt’s neck.
By the time he pulled her onto his lap, she had let down her guard—Arya finally realized Eldad had no intention of hurting her. Esmeralda came by and shared a piece of chicken nugget with the starving dog.
At the veterinary clinic, x-rays showed that Arya’s femur had snapped. Moreover, she had rocks in her stomach; she was so hungry that she tried to eat them.
Arya’s excellent surgeon, Dr. Antonio Pedraza, repaired her fracture. In just three weeks, the pooch was as good as new; she was running and playing in her foster home—courtesy of LA Animal Rescue—as if she had never injured her leg.
After her needs had been taken care of, Arya proved to be an affectionate little pup who loves smothering her humans with kisses. She’s currently looking for the perfect family to open their hearts and homes to her.
