Sad Shelter Pup Got a Day Out and Couldn’t Stop Smiling – Then Something Awesome Happened

   Shelters are incredibly lonely places for dogs. While animals are definitely safer in shelters than they would be chained to a house, wandering the streets, or growing up in feral communities, there’s no doubt that listlessness is all but inevitable for a dog in the shelter. Usually, these dogs have to sleep on cold kennel floors, are overlooked time and time again by prospective adopters, and have limited social interaction. Sadly, this is the reality for millions of homeless animals in the U.S. Thankfully, many of these shelter facilities go above and beyond to make the pups in their possession feel as comfortable and loved as possible. Whether this means giving them a fluffy bed to rest their head, some toys for stimulation, or simply making time to cuddle, these kind little acts can completely transform a dog’s spirit.
   Take Elmo, the Pit Bull, for instance. Found by Animal Control in a yard with another dog, he was taken to KC Pet Project in Kansas City. Elmo was understandably terrified and depressed. The dog he had been found with had gotten adopted and so Elmo truly was all alone in the world...http://www.onegreenplanet.org/news/depressed-shelter-dog-cant-stop-smiling-on-day-out/?
