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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. The sound she makes breaks my heart! What she must have suffered to be so scared and terrified???

    Eldad Hagar..you are an AMAZING man!!
