Eldad Hagar, co-founder of the pet rescue group Hope For Paws. got a tip from a good Samaritan about a homeless dog living on the streets near Los Angeles International Airport. That was all it took for Hagar and his team to spring into action.

He set off with German model Victoria Van Violence (who had flown to the U.S. specifically to meet Hagar and learn more about Hope For Paws), and the pair combed the streets until they found this stray pup.

To watch her go from skittish stray to playful pooch — well, like Hagar says, it's just magic.
