You would be surprised at how far some TLC can go for dogs who are rescued. At times, we see them, and they look nothing like their old selves. This proves that when people get together to change the life of a little guy, the sky is the limit as to how far they can really get with him or her. When I was a teenager, my parents decided to adopt a small dog. We were all older, and we hadn’t had a dog at home in a long time.
When my last dog passed away, I was about 9 years old. It took me several years to be able to overcome it. I would remember him but instead of enjoying all the good times we had, I would remember what had happened and I would get sad. One day, my mother saw that I was sad, and when she asked me what the problem was, I told her I was sad because of my last dog.
My parents had asked me if I wanted to adopt another dog about a year after my dog passed away. I didn’t feel comfortable then because as a child, I kind of felt that I was in a way betraying my beloved friend. When my mother saw this, she said the best thing she could have to make me feel better. She told me that if my dog was there with me or if he could see me, he would probably feel sad that I was not happy.
She told me that we had spent many happy years and that I should remember him as he was back then. Not with sadness but with joy. That conversation made it easier for me to join a rescue group and start to make a difference for so many dogs who end up living in the streets, and who are only looking for a home they can call their own.
The dog in the following video has an amazing story you are going to love. It is often that we see dogs who really need to be saved. Many times, they are in very bad physical shape, and they are very skinny. Remember, when a dog is living on the street, it’s not like he’s getting 2 or 3 meals a day. There can be days between one meal and the next. That is exactly what happened in this case. But get ready for your jaw to drop when you see the amazing transformation after she was rescued!
