Some people who get a dog should never be allowed to. They either don't know or don't care about how to take care of a pet.
Fortunately, though, there are also people out there who are willing to adopt these neglected dogs and give them a whole new life.
Reddit user babyinatrenchcoat saw a picture of an abandoned dog named Kingsley and instantly fell head over heals for him. Now, thanks to her, this wonderful little dog is living the life he deserves. And what a difference that has made!
Scroll down for the story in Kingsley's new owner's words:
"Kingsley was found tied to a tree on some country land. He had been neglected, beaten, and starved. His hair was matted and painful from not being taken care of."
"After they shaved him, he was found to have numerous wounds on his body. Some were old scars and some were fresh and bloody. How anyone could beat a 15 pound schnauzer is beyond me. I wish a special hell for them."
"After they shaved him. You can still see how skittish and skinny he is. He was so abused he was afraid of most people, especially men. But this is the picture I saw online and fell in love with. I knew I had to rescue him."
"That night we adopted him :)"
"First month in his new home. So many things we had to work on. Potty training (he'd never been in a house before), barking, possessiveness (he took to me quickly and tried to fend off my husband if he came near), car rides, etc. He didn't even know how to play with toys :("
"My goob :)"
"He picked up everything so quickly! We're now 2-weeks accident free and he's gotten most "dog things" down. He loves fetch, car rides, cuddles, vegetables, and dryer sheets (he's a weird one)."
"My boy today :) He's filled out to his ideal weight and is getting super fluffy. We're taking him to the groomer later this month for a proper schnauzer cut. He's come such a long way, and it's been a battle sometimes. But when he's snuggled in my lap and gently gives my hand or face a kiss, I know how grateful he is and how it's all worth it."
What a wonderful story! I'm so glad that Kingsley was given another chance and gets to experience what a dog's life should really be. All dogs deserve a loving home!
