Life at the Shelter
We can only imagine what it’s like for a dog living in a shelter. The don’t know if they will ever live with a loving family again. It’s sad. Luckily, this story has a happy ending. You can tell right away this dog is shy.
The other dogs instantly start barking and trying to attract attention when people walk in. But not this dog. He just sits quietly in the back of his cage. He almost looks depressed. Maybe a little scared. It’s not clear how long he has been at the shelter, but he seems hopeless. Is he stuck here forever?
Things quickly change for this dog. He sees people approach his cage and look in. He seems scared. There is a good chance he seen people approach his cage many times and move on. But something is different this time. A look of cautious optimism comes over him. It’s too soon to get his hopes up, but maybe today is his lucky day.
Sure enough, the cage opens up, and his new owner walked in. The dog was reserved moments before. But now, he can’t contain himself. He jumps up with excitement. The look on his face is one of pure joy as he darts back and forth. Just as this dog had lost all hope, he was given freedom, and he was given a loving family.
