Our pets bring us joy and happiness every single day. They help us get through the bad days, and are happy to be there for the good. Sometimes, however, these animals need our help before they can show their true, awesome personalities.
The subreddit, Before N After Adoption, has shown the miraculous effect people can have on their animals. People across the world are posting pictures of their pets before they adopted them, next to pictures of their pups now! The change is incredible.
Dogs at rescue shelters are often scared and nervous, this can present itself in shyness, neurotic tendencies like barking, or sulking. Once you get these animals out of that uncomfortable living situation, though, the happiness can shine through. No one will be able to doubt the power of a forever home after looking at these pet’s smiling faces!
