Julia was shaking in fright and cold when PAWS volunteers rescued her from the floods of Ondoy on October of 2009.
As if that weren't enough, she was soon diagnosed with CTVT, a highly contagious and painful disease.
It was because of this that adoption counselors advised Francis Geologo and his family to choose a different dog instead of her.
But to everyone's surprise and joy, Julia's adopters patiently waited and cared for her during the entire treatment and recovery, which took months.
Finally, on March 6, 2010, Julia went home.
Everyday the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center cares for animals who are victims of cruelty and neglect.
