Huff Post: Three Puppies Rescued From Storm Drain After Mother Dog, Gaia, Is Killed In Hit-And-Run

A few months ago, we fell in love with Fiona, the blind dog who melted our hearts with her courage. Fiona had been found in a trash heap in Los Angeles and was rescued by Hope For Paws, an organization run by Eldad Hagar and his wife, Audrey.
But last week, Hagar posted a new video on YouTube, in which he shared the heartbreaking story of Gaia and her three puppies.
Pregnant and suffering from a broken leg, Gaia had been abandoned in the "middle of nowhere" in central California. Against the odds, Gaia survived her injury and soon gave birth to three adorable female puppies.
However, Hagar told The Huffington Post the dogs' situation had become desperate as Gaia's injury continued to worsen.
"A couple of women had been giving food to the dogs, helping them survive," Hagar said. "But Gaia was in a lot of pain. Her leg was rotting. She would have needed amputation."

5. I'm crying after reading about the one puppy who ran to the Mom...
how can people be so wonderful, like the rescuer, and so horrible like the one that dumped her?
