WATCH: Claremont dog 'Hope' found starved, abandoned seen playing with puppies, wagging tail in shelter video

CLAREMONT - A New Hampshire pit bull's tail is wagging after being properly fed, taken care of and loved since she was found starved and abandoned earlier this month.

The female pit bull was found alone on Claremont railroad tracks one cold, rainy night in early Nov.

The dog was brought to Lost My Way Animal Shelter where Cathy Sullivan, the shelter's owner, said it would take months of medical care to nurse the dog back to health.

Less than a month later, the dog, who has been named Hope, is living up to her name.

Hope has received the medical attention she needed to bring her back up from the shockingly low 27 pounds she weighed when she was found.

Lost My Way Animal Shelter posted videos of Hope playing with new puppies at the shelter, grabbing treats and wagging her tail from happiness.

This is what Hope looked like just a month ago.
