It's hard to type with tears in my eyes...I just hope and pray that they find their forever home, and will live a happy life together, and rest in Peace, sweet little Penny, I hope you are playing with all the other Angels across the Rainbow Bridge...I just can't understand how someone could have been so cold hearted and uncaring, to just put these three little Dogs on the Street, and leave them to fend for themselves...It breaks my heart, human beings are getting colder and more heartless every day...Thanks Barb...

Thanks for posting Barb but of course we all wanted a happy ending for all 3 but she could have died homeless. Noted and shared.

Thanks Barb. dear. Noted I still am welling up at the thought of poor little Penny and what these darling dogs must have gone through. Thank God for the lovely old lady who was feeding them.. I loved the gentleness and loving way of the young guy who captured them. I would SO love to adopt them, but apart from living in Australia, I don't think the 16 cats at miy place would be too pleased! I am so SURE the ywill get a good home they are such darling dogs. I will pass this on to friends.

Thanks Barb and thanks to Nicky for forwarding - what an utterly lovely video (except for the sad news of the death of poor little Penny, the sweet little darling!). I too thank God for the lovely old lady who was feeding the dogs. I will try and pray for the SOB who shot the dogs to be blessed with every virtue (including repentance) - and ditto for the one who dumped them. I loved the patience of the man who caught them and the love and affection he showed the dogs, letting them know they would at last be safe.
Tried to send stars but not able to yet.

Hi, Barb, Eldad Hagar accomplished the rescue so smoothly! I'd love to know if what was shot at the dogs
could be removed, or if it was decided that it wouldn't pay to operate? It was wonderful to see those tails going when they knew they were in a safe and helpful place.

Thanks Barb for sharing this with us. It breaks my heart to see how heartless some humans can be. I just can not (and will never) understand how someone can dump their pets like this and how someone can be so cruel and hurt them. I am so grateful to the lady who was feeding them and for everyone who helped rescuing them. These precious dogs remind me of my rescued cats, how they were suffering just because their previous owners treated them like throw away objects.

Hagar rescued them in the knick of time. Had Penny died while they were in the street the boys would have been so confused and heartbroken.

I'm crying after(while) watching. I just don't understand people being cruel to animals in any way. I'm sure these dogs will get adopted pretty soon. At least that's what I'm praying for. Thanks for sharing. I too will share this video.

Poor little sad that she passed but glad that it wasn't alone in a parking lot. So thankful for the man that did such a wonderful thing capturing these little babies. Now, hopefully the remaining two will find a wonderful forever home.

This was such a heartwarming video. I'm sad for Penny, but am happy for the other two. I have a little rescue chihuahua and eventhough, I know she was out on the streets for a while, I still can't imagine it. And although I see it everyday here and in other forums, I still can't wrap my head around the animal cruelty I feel bombarded with on a daily basis. At times, I begin to lose hope and it's nice to see such a wonderful rescue and be able to share it. Thanks Barb.

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. Kudos to those who saved the puppies. This is a prime example of the best of humans and the worst. Dropping these dogs off was a horrible things to do; shooting them was horrible, feeding them was wonderful, reporting them to the shelter was positive, and the rescue awesome.
