People underestimate what the power of a loving home can do for a dog. Many dogs that end up in shelters come from the streets or homes that have abused them emotionally and physically. Sometimes when they arrive they are traumatized to the point where it may seem impossible to help them recover. But the following photos of dogs before and after they were adopted will prove that a loving home can do wonders for them.
1. Nook Nook: Nook Nook is Ariel Nichole Dehart’s beautiful dog. He was born 100% deaf, so the owners in California saw no use to keep him since they couldn’t breed him. When she was volunteering one day at the pound, she fell in love with him instantly. He knows many sign language commands.
2. Phoenix: Phoenix was surrendered to a shelter in Tennessee when he was just 11 weeks old. He had only three days to find a home or he was going to be euthanized. So with help, Danielle Baldwin adopted him. When she got him, he had a bad case of Demodex mange and a bacterial infection. But with the right care and love from his new owner, Phoenix is healthy and Demodex free.
