Eldad Hagar and Hope for Paws have made yet another incredible rescue. This time, they received a call from a concerned neighbor who had watched a dog be tied to a tree for ten years. They had called the police, and a Sheriff arrived demanding that the owners bring the dog inside.
However, the concerned neighbor knew this wasn’t a solution and begged them to surrender the Newfoundland named Turk to Hope for Paws. When they finally agreed, Hagar drove out to his house and transported him to a veterinary hospital. Hagar described Turk as smelling so bad that he could barely breathe on the car ride there.

At the hospital, it took over four hours to clean Turk up from his ten years of accumulated filth and they found a painful tumor that needed to be removed. Happily, they began medical treatment and Turk became a happy guy.
Hope for Paws paired with Frosted Faces Foundation, who found him a forever foster. Turk will now have the life he deserves, but it should never be okay for a dog to suffer such a horrible living situation. If you see something like this happening, never be afraid to speak up, because beautiful dogs like Turk cannot speak for themselves.
