Scared Dog Just Needed a Hug

Sometimes it really is true: All you need is love.

Edie was scheduled to be euthanized the day before this video, but someone saw how scared she was and rescued her from the shelter. She was taken to the vet to get looked at where she was just terrified of everything.

Until someone pulled poor little Edie in their lap and gave her a hug.


The last few lines of that video are so true. So many shelter animals are overlooked because they aren't as "cute" or "friendly" as others. Of course they aren't... It's scary in there! They all deserve a chance. :)

  1. I'm sooooo happy for Edie and for whomever has rescued her.  She is really so sweet and truly only needed to be hugged and shown that she is 'needed by someone'.   Darling wee thing.  I hope she lives a long, healthy life.

    I too saved a maltese puppy from a bad home.If i hadn't taken her ...she would have been put down at the age of 4.I'm happy to say that my girl sasha will be 12 this year and she is truly my little angel ...she blesses me daily.

    To whoever saved Edie...thank you.

  5. What an awesome story! Thank you so much to the person that saved her, to the person that called Edie's new owner and to you, Dorian for posting this so we can share Edie's story and hopefully help more animals out there that just need a hug :)

  8. YEAH!!! It is so true - I think some shelter workers (and not to fault them - their jobs are hard enough) get in a hurry and don't or can't take the time to see past the terror. And yet with a little patience and love, there are great animals that just can't take the shelter system. Thank heaven for people like this!!
