… until they made it to the vet, and Tweedy realized that someone was finally trying to help her, and that her life fending for herself on the streets was completely behind her.
"When we got her into the car after the initial uncomfortableness of the rescue, she definitely calmed down and just sat there," Arturo told The Dodo. "I wouldn't say she was my best friend yet, but I was petting her paw and she didn't move away. She didn't look at me but she was like, 'I'll let her touch me.'"
After being examined by the vet, it was determined that Tweedy had a broken elbow, fractured teeth, a skin infection and an ear infection. They quickly began treating her for her ailments, and as her pain began to fade, so did more of her fear. She let Arturo pet and love on her, but still had trouble bonding with anyone else, and it was clear that she still had a long way to go in her recovery journey.
