Judy Obregon, founder of the Texas rescue organization The Abandoned Ones, spends much of her life looking for lives she could help save. Over the past six years, she's rescued hundreds of neglected and abandoned dogs from areas all around Fort Worth. She's sometimes known as "the dog lady."
When residents of Deer Creek, a Fort Worth neighborhood, told Obregon about a dog who had been seen intermittently wandering alone for the past two years, Obregon was immediately on her way.
Obregon drove over and spotted the neglected, scared dog in the subdivision. The dog was jumpy, but Obregon refused to give up on her - even if it took tremendous patience to gain the dog's trust.
