    Completely blind in both eyes, Fiona was found covered in filth with her fur matted and flea infested cowering in the corner of a trash dump.

    The Hagars had scooped up the white dog who was still so frightened she urinated again, and again when they took her to the car and back to the house where she was confronted with their friend pack of dogs.


    The couple immediately began cleaning up the dog, who they had named Fiona on the drive back to their West Los Angeles home.
     

    Fiona's fur was so severely matted with the worst flea infestation the couple had seen in all their years of rescuing dogs they had to shave it all off
