In celebration of National Puppy Day, is sharing the heartwarming story, and video diary, of a poor abandoned pooch rescued from a South Los Angeles trash can.

The terrified white pup was found cowering in a corner among a mass of trash, old brooms and a basketball by rescuers, who realized straight away that she was blind so they allowed her to smell them before getting too close.

After their gentle approach, she let them stroke her matted fur while she sat frozen on the ground. Her guardian angels wrapped her in a blanket and on their way home decided to call her Fiona.

The newly named dog then got a full haircut to rid her of an extreme flea infestation and a warm bubble bath.

Next up was a trip to vet Dr. Michael Chang, who confirmed she was 100 percent blind, but a miraculous surgery brought the vision back in one eye. On the way home, the delighted dog – dressed in a fashionable cone – stuck her head out of the car window and saw the great wide world for the first time.

Her amazing video diary ends with Fiona scampering around excitedly wagging her little tail as she plays with her new family.
