I have one rescue that we adopted from PAWS almost six years ago. We adopted him, A.J on a Saturday and he was scheduled to be put down the following Monday. Six years later and my dog still has nightmares about him being abused and also cannot handle raised voices, as he will shake andsometimes pee himself. A.J is one of my best friends in the entire world, and I am happy I can snuggle with him every night and he's not in one of those over-crowded shelters.
A.J is now one happy, overweight dog who gets treats, belly rubs and a bed to sleep in every night. I will always adopt because there are more A.J's out there and that is just so so sad.
