FRESNO, Calif. — An injured dog dropped off at an animal shelter in Fresno, California, now has a new home.

The terrier-doxie mix named hope was emaciated and missing a leg when she was found in November, NBC station KSEE reported.

A woman saw the pup and knew they'd be a perfect match because they both had a rough year.

Kathy Ferguson lost her husband and had to get a bone marrow transplant. Now she says hope has helped her heal.

The animal shelter helped her track down the woman who brought her in so Kathy could thank her.
