Abandoned and blind, poodle’s story goes viral (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON – In the popular Dreamworks movie “Shrek,” Princess Fiona sacrifices her beauty and transforms into an ugly ogre. But for Fiona the poodle mix, the transformation went the other way around.

In a video that’s quickly gone viral, Eldad and Audrey Hagar, founders of the animal rescue nonprofit Hope For Paws, tell Fiona’s story from start to finish. First discovered in a trash heap near an abandoned building, Fiona was flea-infested, terrified and completely blind.

The Hagars took the neglected pup home and cleaned her up. A vet was able to restore vision to one of her eyes through a cornea replacement, The Huffington Post reports.

Fiona is now fully rehabilitated and was adopted by a new family. Watch the video below to see her journey.
