Thanks to the rescue team at Animal Aid Unlimited in India, this hopeless dog found redemption. After crawling into a barrel of tar to find warmth in the night, the pup could only sit and wait in the hope someone would come. She had sunken into the tar so deep, it eventually took rescuers three hours to remove it all from her body.
