Every year, a lot of dogs are rescued from bad situations. Many of these dogs have been abused by their owners in ways that are hard to imagine. This is why most dogs that are rescued from these situations are afraid of people.
However, when these dogs learn that humans can show love, they start to open up and become very grateful to their rescuers. This is why they are so thankful.
Toro, a dog, loves giving people hugs. He used to be afraid of everyone because he came from a bad place.
It was outside of an old building when Toro was found. He was chained to a fence. It’s thought that Toro was chained outside his whole life and never let inside by his owners.
The first time Toro came into the shelter, he was nervous and scared.
Before, Toro had spent most of his life alone. He didn’t know what it was like to be kind. He didn’t quite know what to really expect from the people around him, and he was also afraid and shy. There is surely no doubt that Toro is a good dog who just wants to be part of a family.
Eventually, Toro came to understand that the people who helped him were not trying to hurt him. He also started to feel kindness and love, which helped him get out of his shell a little bit. But even though Toro still gets stressed out, it’s been a while since the last time he experienced this badly. Now, he wants to show his rescuers how much he loves them.
Shelter staff member Melissa Fogarty was in the play yard when she saw Toro running toward her. Then, Toro crawled up on Melissa’s lap and put his body against her chest. As soon as Toro met Melissa, he fell in love with her. He also hugged everyone he met.
Toro always hugs humans when he meets them. This warms everyone up and makes them want to be friends with him.
Toro is a middle-aged Pit Bull mix, and it’s hard for him to find a new home. However, when people see and experience Toro’s love and kindness, the shelter staff are positive that he will find the perfect home that will also show him love and kindness.
Here’s a heartwarming video about Toro and how he shows his appreciation for being rescued with sweet hugs.
