"I sat in the kennel with her and over the course of 48 hours I just went really slow, and got her to eat food out of my hand which is a really good step," Arturo said.

Tweedy was taken in by LA Animal Rescue and placed with a foster family, and when she arrived, she was still scared, confused and closed off. Her foster family gave her a few days to warm up to them, giving her plenty of space and time, and when she was ready she began to seek them out all on her own. They still thought she might be a little nervous because she was having trouble looking at them — until they realized there was a problem with her eyes.
