Every year, thousands of dogs are brought in to shelters where they are needlessly put down if no one adopts them. Those dogs could have been the perfect dog for someone. This is why you should get a rescue dog.
Most rescue dogs living in shelters usually didn’t have good lives before they were brought in. Most are strays, and others are rescued dogs from abusive owners. Most of the rescue dogs are looking for a family to adopt them. Thankfully, more and more people are starting to adopt rescue dogs instead of buying from breeders.
They’re becoming more aware that rescue dogs have so much potential to be fantastic family pets. And, a dog named Luci became a special dog for someone in need of a friend.
A woman was going through a dark phase in her life, and she needed a loyal friend who would never betray her trust. She was depressed and didn’t have anyone to talk to. She wasn’t close to her dad and would often find herself locking herself inside her room.
After a couple of months of feeling depressed, the woman and her friend decided to go to an animal shelter. She felt utterly alone and decided that going to an animal shelter would be good for her.
Animal Shelter Surprise
When she went inside the adoption room of the shelter, it was very loud and full of happiness. They eventually made it to the second room where she met Luci, who was curled up in a ball. She felt something pulling her towards the dog. While her friend was playing with the other puppies, she knelt beside Luci and let her sniff her hands. Luci looked up at her and just rested her head on the woman’s hands.
This was the time when the woman knew that she could never leave the shelter without Luci. The woman filled out the adoption papers, and she came back a couple of weeks later to pick up Luci, who was given her vaccines and was spayed.
The woman showered Luci with all the love she can give. She wanted to make Luci happy and make her feel at home. Little did she realize that Luci was also making her happy. Whenever she felt sad, Luci would somehow sense it and would lie down beside her and giving her puppy kisses.
Happy Life With a New Dog
The woman realized that her life is a lot better and happier with Luci around. She stopped gossiping, and she was going to her job happy and full of energy. Her relationship with her dad even improved, thanks to Luci.
The woman’s dad wasn’t a big dog fan, but Luci somehow melted his heart that when the woman came home one day, she discovered one of their old spoons that had her dad’s handwriting on it that says Luci’s Spoon. It’s incredibly sweet that her dad finally accepted Luci as part of the family.
In a way, Luci saved the woman’s life. She’s a lot happier, made new friends, and also had a more positive outlook in life. Here’s a heartwarming video of how a dog saved a woman’s life. It goes to show that we’ll never surely know when or where we’ll find our best friend, this is why you should get a rescue dog!
