The following video will break your heart. And lift your spirit.
Produced by the animal rescue organization Hope for Paws, it chronicles the journey of a dog named Theo.
After being abandoned by his owners, the canine was found under a trailer in Compton, California. His hair was all matted. He was initially terrified by human touch and/or interaction.
But Hope for Paws took Theo in, cleaned him up, nourished him and, within two weeks, the dog's tail was wagging and he was happily enjoying the company of two other rescues.
Watch this incredible, inspiring transformation now:
Last year, Hope for Paws posted the video of a dog saved from a trash heap and nursed back to health.
