Owner Leaves His Dog Tied With A Note For The Rescuers

Rescue Of A Sick And Exhausted Senior Dog

Every time I try to describe Tina and what she means to me, the words seem small and insignificant and I just mumble something like “she is amazing”. I wish I could talk with feelings, I wish I could draw my emotions or have a poet describe her for me, but I can’t.

Puppy Abandoned For Being “Different” Is Now The Happiest Boy
