Adopting a dog is one of the most rewarding things you can experience as a pet owner. And that’s because most of the dogs put up for adoption have never known life in a caring and loving home.
By adopting a dog, you are giving them a second chance to experience all they deserve in their short doggie lives.
Being welcomed into a loving and supportive household has a huge impact on their overall health and happiness.
And this is best exemplified by the following heartwarming before and after adoption photos:
The after photo is brighter in so many ways…
The ears are up and the tail is wagging…

It’s all in the eyes…
It was once a petrified little pooch but now has the courage of a lion.
