A dog was found abandoned, abused and near death in Simpson County, but with the help of a local animal clinic she could make a full recovery. 

The small dog was found near under bush by a creek in Franklin, Kentucky, just down the street from an animal shelter. The woman that found her immediately brought her to the Fix Foundation, a spay and neuter clinic.

The dog was in poor condition. It was dehydrated, malnourished and had a raw nose from what the volunteers assumed was from trying to scratch and dig her way out of the carrier she was left in.

The workers tried to save her, but was unsure if she would make it through the night. They named her Hope.

By the next day, Hope's health had improved, but was still in critical condition.

She was transported to The Arrow Fund a clinic in Louisville that treats animals who are victims of abuse.
