There are two general schools of thought when it comes to getting a new dog for your family. Some people will go after a specific breed, typically because they like the looks or personality that is associated with it. There are also those who will go to one of the overcrowded shelters and provide a forever home to an animal in need. Whichever direction you choose to go in, you likely recognize the struggle that those shelter dogs face.
Sometimes we get an up close and personal example of an animal who was taken from the shelter and exactly what happened when they were given a forever home. It is often shared online, and that is also the case with Luna. Her pictures were shown on Imgur and they quickly went viral. Luna was taken off of the streets and was nothing but a bag of bones but in only eight months, her life and her health were completely changed for the better.
Luna was adopted by someone who does this on a regular basis. Last year alone, he took care of 25 dogs and all of them were adopted. He also has 7 dogs of his own and 5 of them come from the streets.
Hearing something like this lets you know that there are still kind people in the world. When you see the pictures below, there will be no doubt that Luna benefited from the experience.
Luna is a Siberian Husky. This is a picture when she was taken off of the street, 8 months ago.
She was missing hair because of mange and was far too skinny.
This is a picture of what Luna looks like now
