Rescue dogs like Oliver usually have one thing in common: thousands of shares and zero adoption interest. Rescuing a dog like Oliver means that every post’s “people reach” about will rise sky high, with comment like “I would have adopted him if…” coming and going.

This is Bianca. I only met her two weeks ago and her rescue-rehome story is the fastest and most amazing ever. Almost everything I wanted to say about her is in the video, so I won’t be babbling for this post.

Why didn’t you keep him? He loved you … I get this question almost every time I post a video about a rescue or foster dog (ah! especially a foster dog) that was adopted. Today, I even woke up to find a comment in Christie’s video saying “she trusted you and you let her down!” WTF???

I was volunteering in ZEIL back then, and a friend told me about a puppy that suddenly appeared out of nowhere near the area. It was in May, 2015.
