Wow, that was pretty darn sad.


Did you know that some of the rescue dogs can become depressed if they don't find anyone? Sort of an animal PTSD if they never complete their job? Well, apparently sometimes rescuers will lay down and hide themselves so the dog can "find" a person.


I'm not an animal person, but I can certainly see why people favor them so much.

She also did rescues after hurricanes. Great dog. Great humans too, her owners. They've had other rescue dogs and still have another one now.

This one just showed up voluntarily from Canada and found the very last survivor to be dug out from under.

Always has to be one I guess... Obviously you've got no clue about the dogs actual condition unless you were her vet or owner.

Have you ever heard of compassion? It's NOT that a dog is "not frisky enough", it IS about pain,suffering and quality of life AND about being compassionate enough not to force an animal to linger on when it's suffering no matter how hard it is emotionally.
