When a dog is abandoned, they will spend a significant portion of their days wondering if they are ever going to have the chance to be adopted. Those who have visited animal shelters in the past know that these locations tend to come with a palpable amount of sadness. The animals are aware of their fates and they know that they are powerless to change them.
They desperately want to be taken home and given love by a human. The dog in this story was left searching for a forever home. As a dog who had spent most of his life tethered to a chain, he knew that it would be difficult to find the right fit. One special woman finally found her way into his life recently. By all accounts, their meeting was a prime example of love at first sight.
She knew that the dog had experienced abuse during the past. As a result, she was worried about how the dog would adjust to their new home. Fortunately for us, cameras were present when this dog decided to say “thank you” to his new owner in the best way that he knew how. He knew what was happening as soon as he hopped into this woman’s car.
Stories like these go to show that dogs are far more intelligent than most people realize, from an emotional standpoint. They have an acute awareness of their situations and they know when they are not wanted. That is why they are able to display the proper level of appreciation once they are finally given the chance to head to a home that is all their own.
This is what every shelter dog deserves and we wish that all of these animals would be able to find homes. The dog in this story may be one of the lucky ones but that does not change the fact that our nation’s shelters are still jam packed with animals who are in need of a loving residence. Please be sure to share this awesome moment with your friends and loved ones.
Who knows? You just might inspire someone you care about to make a major difference in a dog’s life. Let’s all come together and make sure that these types of stories are able to become the norm and not an exception. Don’t be shy about sharing away, everyone.
