In this heartwarming YouTube video, a poodle that was reportedly abandoned and hit by a car brings a rescuer to tears as her fear turns to affection.

Rescue from the Hart posted the video on Thursday, and it details the rescue and recovery of a dog they named “Layla.”

The founder of the rescue organization, Annie Hart, described the moment to the Huffington Post.

“My heart sank as we pulled up and saw Layla sitting there alone on the side of the road,” Hart said. “Hundreds of people had walked by her before we arrived and they did nothing to help her. They chose to not stop and see Layla’s despair and abandonment, and to not take action.”
