Rescuers save starving Cocker Spaniel from streets of Los Angeles

It’s always disheartening to see a dog who’s been abandoned. These poor animals just want to be loved, but often through circumstances out of their control, they get left behind and have to fend for themselves.

When an abandoned cocker spaniel was reported to be roaming around a neighborhood in Los Angeles, a few good people came to his rescue.

Hope for Paws is a non-profit organization that strives to help lost, hurt, or abandoned animals find homes. This particular case was a little more dire for this dog.Meet Amos, a cocker spaniel was left to fend for himself in the streets of Los Angeles.

Hope For Paws had gotten the call about Amos from a few concerned neighbors who saw the dog wandering around the streets. According to a few of the residents in the area, the dog had been spotted wandering around for nearly a month.

His clear distrust of people is enough to break anyone’s heart. Thankfully, one kind-hearted rescuer by the name of Lisa was able to get close enough to Amos to feed him and even get a leash on him.
