TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

A dog found in terrible condition on an east Toledo porch is now getting the care she needs. 

The Toledo Area Humane Society said Hope was rescued by Lucas County Canine Care & Control when a Good Samaritan brought her in as a stray last Friday. 

The woman said she found the four-year-old German Shepard on a porch in the 1200 block of Navarre Avenue. 

TAHS said Hope was transferred to them to receive care, and was in pretty bad shape. When Hope first arrived, she was severely malnourished, dehydrated and flea-infested, with in-grown toenails and ear infections. Thankfully, TAHS said that she is slowly getting better.

"She wasn't really responding a whole lot and then we just gave her the IVs and ran her some fluids and then she gradually came around, said Dr. Anna Brown, Senior Staff Veterinarian at the Toledo Area Humane Society.

Anyone with information about Hope should call the TAHS animal cruelty hotline at 419-891-9777 or submit a tip to TAHS online.

If you would like to assist with her recovery needs, donations can also be made online.
