There is something about a shelter dog that really makes you believe they understand more than we give them credit for. From the moment you walk away from the shelter with your new companion, you can see the excitement in those puppy-dog eyes.
Any adoptive pet parent will tell you they can feel gratitude from their loving dog. You may not ever know the full story of your dog’s past, but after a rough journey to your home, your pooch is always a little bit happier to see you come home at the end of the day and a little more eager to snuggle up with you.

You know that certain level of gratitude many adoptive parents talk about? It builds a bond that is impossible to break. After spending days, months or years together, you will become an inseparable pair. No matter what your dog’s back story is, you two have found each other and the future is a little bit brighter with your dog loyally by your side and you by his.
