COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -
She's got a common name, but don't be fooled -- Shaggy's story is all her own.
"After 5 years, I knew something had to be done," said Manuela Schafer.
For years, Manuela drove down Platt Springs Road, passing Shaggy on her way to work.
Schafer's charity "Chasing Tails," eventually tried catching her, but couldn't get it done.
"The area where the dog was located, for our small group it was too much to handle," said Schafer.
So Schafer reached out to Eldad Hagar. He and his wife are known across the country for launching elaborate stray animal rescues.
"I looked at the pictures, and could see her condition was just terrible," said Hagar.
So Hagar put out the call for volunteers. Within 24 hours, more than 40 massed in Columbia. Using skills he learned as an Israeli Army Commander, Hagar coordinated the capture.
That was Sunday. Since then, tens of thousands have tuned in to Shaggy's webcam to see how she's doing.
"It's a beautiful thing to see," said Hagar. "It's like watching evolution in high speed."
"She's doing great compared to where she was," said Schafer.
Shaggy has a herniated diaphragm, heart worms, and a broken tail, but thanks to an army of volunteers and thousands of new friends in the flesh and online, she's on the mend.
"It's absolutely incredible," said Hagar. "She wakes up in the morning and wags her tail. A dog that hasn't been touched in 5 years. It's incredible."
