The Houston Police Department discovered Ziva, an eight-month-old pit bull, padlocked in the city's Acres Home neighborhood.

She was severely malnourished, covered in sores, had an eye and skin infection, as well as split paws. She had also lost most of her fur to mange, a type of skin mite.

Dog rescue organization A Chance To Bloom took Ziva in and got her the veterinary care she needed.

One of the vet techs fell in love with her and fostered her for a couple months.

Ziva has since been adopted.
