Terrified Dog Who Only Needed a Hug

If this video doesn’t make you cry tears of happiness, nothing will. Edie was so “aggressive” that she was put on a euthanasia list, and was rescued at the last hour. Only she wasn’t aggressive – she was absolutely petrified. She defecated on the floor when Eldad Hagar tried to connect with her, but completely melted as soon as he pulled her onto his lap for a hug. Now Edie has been adopted into a wonderful and loving home.

    I rescued Emma…same problem. No one at shelter even aged her because she was so aggressive. I was even a little scared of her when she arrived at my home. When I finally got her our of under the bed and held her,,,she melted :). She’s awesome and now ready for adoption.

    This is such a beautiful heartfelt story and the folks involved in saving Edie have saved many many more little ones in desperate need.

    But I see this and I cant help but wonder how many dogs out there just like Edie are lost because no one even tries to help them. Please dont just walk away. A little effort and you may witness a miracle in the making just like Edie.
