Los Angeles-based animal rescue Hope For Paws received a call about a terrified dog hiding under some bushes.
When rescue founder Eldad Hagar and volunteer Loreta Frankonyte arrived on the scene, the concerned caller directed them towards a hedge on the side of a house.
Hagar and Frankonyte worked quickly to enclose the area so the dog wouldn't escape.
When they were able to move in for a closer look, they discovered that the frightened dog they'd been called to rescue was, in fact, a puppy.
