This adorable dog is living proof that love can heal anything. Despite being abandoned and fearful, he finally gave in and licked his rescuer’s hand for the first time.
It seems that Travis may have experienced abuse from a man who struggles with anger management issues. It’s understandable why Travis was scared and lost trust in humans, especially men. Rebuilding trust takes a lot of effort. We should applaud Travis’ rescuers, the veterinarians, and the foster family who helped him become a success story by working with him to regain his trust in humans. May they be blessed for their kindness towards Travis.
Foster caregivers are the unsung heroes of the animal rescue community. It takes a great deal of commitment to nurse a traumatized animal back to health, both physically and emotionally, and help them develop into the perfect pet for their future forever home. Those who advocate for and protect animals are truly remarkable individuals. May they always be blessed with safety and security.
