That's the word Eldad Hagar uses when talking about rescuing Ava, a homeless dog living on the streets of Los Angeles.

Hagar, co-founder of the LA-based animal rescue Hope for Paws, said he rushed over to rescue Ava last month after being tipped off by a good Samaritan. It's believed the pooch had been living on the streets for several weeks before Hagar got to her.

With the help of Victoria Van Violence -- a model from Germany who had flown to the U.S. specifically to learn more about Hagar's work -- Hagar managed to earn Ava's trust and whisked her off to a veterinary hospital.

In the video, Ava transforms from a skittish and scared pup, to a warm, cuddly bundle of love after a bit of coaxing and affection.

"It took just 10 seconds from the moment I initiated physical contact with her, until she was just loving being touched," Hagar told The Huffington Post via email. "To me, this is like magic -- the speed that she accepted my love…is just amazing."

    Wolves are so much part of our lives and so misunderstood.
