Chloe, an abandoned dog, found herself in a shelter surrounded by strangers. Like many other animals, she had been left by her owner. In the unfamiliar environment, Chloe hid her head against the wall, too frightened to let anyone near her.
To find Chloe a loving home, the Saving Baldwin Park Shelter Dogs posted a picture of her on Instagram. They knew she needed love and care to have a chance at happiness.
Shira, from Animal Rescue Mission, saw Chloe’s photo and knew the perfect person to foster her: a man named Darvish. Together, they went to the shelter to pick up Chloe, but it wasn’t easy. She was scared and reluctant to trust anyone.
With patience and the help of some treats, Shira and Darvish convinced Chloe to leave the shelter and enter their car. They allowed her to take her time and finally, she climbed into the back seat. However, Chloe was still frightened and searched for a corner to hide in.
Shira managed to soothe Chloe and even received a small kiss from her. Once they arrived at Darvish’s home, Chloe needed more time to adjust. She hesitated to leave the car and enter her new surroundings.
The first few days were difficult, as Chloe refused to leave a corner in Darvish’s bedroom. He patiently let her take her time to explore and adjust. Eventually, Chloe began to trust her foster dad and followed him everywhere.
Seeing her progress, Darvish knew he couldn’t let anyone else adopt Chloe. Once the adoption was complete, he renamed her Mira.
From a scared dog abandoned by her owner, Mira has transformed into a confident, happy animal.
