Piper, a German Shepherd, was sick and abused when the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County saved her from a shelter and nursed her back to health.
Now, Piper is competing to win $5,000 for the rescue group and the title of the nation's "Dirtiest Dog." She wants to pay it forward, but she will need online votes.
To vote for Piper, visit the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County website. The contest ends at midnight.
