Angelica the dog lived in a cage for 6 years, and her only friend, Spud, lived in a cage next to her. The duo had never been able to interact freely, but thanks to the dedicated rescuers, they were finally able to be with each other without barriers between them.
Stacey Pettit of Rescue & RemEMBER marveled at the dogs' resilience and gratitude. “You would expect them to act passively, but they were just kissing,” she told Dodo.
Spud was adopted immediately, but Angelica was in a rougher condition and needed more time. Her back legs were very weak, and she needed to build up her muscles.
But while in nursery, a whole new world opened up to her. Not only did she taste her first hamburger, she went to the dog park and made many friends.
Angelica was eventually adopted, but she never completely forgot her past - she was able to see her boyfriend, Spud.
Spud's and Angelica's families reunited the dogs months later, and it's a joy to see how happy the two dogs are now in their new lives..
