Millions of pets throughout the world suffer from animal abuse. This puppy found at a shelter in Romania was one of them. The dog suffered from a lifetime of abuse at the hands of its previous owner and was eventually taken away to live at a shelter. Unfortunately, the animal’s traumatic past left it frightened of any human contact.
One woman wanted to show the puppy what love and affection looked like. As she approached, the dog yelped and cried, but after a few tense seconds it realized what her true intentions were. Today the pup has made a full recovery and lives a happy life full of all the love it never had. If you wish to help fight animal abuse, you can learn about and donate to the cause here.
